Move Mouse is a free Windows 10 user activity simulator app. By user activity simulator, I mean you can give the app instructions to perform a certain action after every few seconds so the computer doesn’t go into sleep mode. For example, when you are running a process or downloading a big file which will take a long time to complete. But you cannot be in front of the computer for the entire duration, then you can set this app to move mouse cursor every few seconds so the computer doesn’t go into sleep or hibernation mode.
The user activity simulator app can be downloaded from the Windows 10 store or from the link given at the end of this article. When you download this app and launch it, you will see a lovely interface like the one shown in the screenshot below.
To set a action to be performed go to the settings icon. When you click the settings icon a black window will open up with lots of options on it, as can be seen in the screenshot below.
The right side of the app window has all the options which you can select like actions, behavior, appearance, schedules, and blackouts. When you select actions, you will need to click on the plus icon given for a list of actions to come up, this can be seen in the screenshot above. The list of various actions which can be performed are listed. Choose the one which you want. Let’s start by selecting move mouse cursor. After selecting this, you can change the given options like distance you want the mouse cursor to move, direction you want the mouse cursor to move in, speed in which it should move, whether you want this action repeated, etc.
Then click on the test button to see how this action will happen. When all set close the window. Now when you see the main interface of the app a green countdown timer will start on it. When the timer runs out, the mouse will automatically move as assigned. The running timer on the interface can be seen in the screenshot below.
