This is a simple guide to a simple but mildly infuriating problem – some controller games don’t automatically hide the mouse cursor when you are playing them.
I came across this recently when playing Final Fantasy VI. I’m playing the game with a controller, but my mouse cursor is stuck in the middle of the screen. Since I’m playing the game on my Steam Link in the living room, I have no way to move it aside either. It’s just stuck there.
The way I’m removing it is by using a very small program called AutoHideMouseCursor, which does exactly what the name implies.
