Optimizing Windows 10 for SpotCollector

By default, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 enable "visual effects" that can on some systems result in SpotCollector "stealing" the mouse cursor. This can be frustrating if you're trying to compose an email message or update a document, only to have the text you're typing suddenly begin appearing in the Filter panel on SpotCollector's Main window. To prevent this,

  1. In the Windows Control Panel, search for Adjust the Appearance and Performance of Windows, and click it to open the Performance Options window

  2. On the Performance Options window's Visual Effects tab,

    1. select Custom

    2. uncheck the Show window contents while dragging box

    3. click the OK button
