Well, here’s something for our Mac OS X users! If you are coming to Mac OS X from elsewhere in the UNIX and x11 world, you might be used to the focus of Terminal windows following your mouse cursor. Well, using a little magic of the command line, we can activate this hidden feature in the Mac OS X Terminal.app also. Here’s presenting you the command line entry how to do this. Just check it out!

How to set Terminal focus to follow mouse cursor in Mac OS X

First, launch the “Terminal” and then, enter the following;

defaults write com.apple.terminal FocusFollowsMouse -string YES

After that, you’ll have to relaunch Terminal.app for changes to take effect.

Well, if you don’t like it, then, you can disable cursor focus by changing YES to NO and reissuing the command;

defaults write com.apple.terminal FocusFollowsMouse -string NO

After that, relaunch the Terminal.app for the click-to-focus default setting to be activated again.
