I have 2 different size monitors that I am using in dual monitor setup. While switching from the larger to the smaller, often times the mouse pointer is stuck at the bottom corner between the monitors. A quick video showing the annoying state.

Open system preferences, click 'displays', and then click the 'arrangement' tab. Here you will see a scaled down representation of your displays' positions relative to one another. Drag the displays around until the mouse switches over at the correct position. For your case, it'll probably look something like this:. There is a native way to get around it It'll go through to the other screen if you bash the cursor to the corner fast. It doesn't have to be super fast, but fast enough that you will get stuck there most of the time anyway.

There are many applications that move your mouse to another screen via shortcut, but those have never interested me personally. I think the most useful application I have found to get around this issue is Mouse Warp 2.

It warps your mouse to the center of the active window when you switch to it. It also has the option to only warp the mouse cursor if the activated application is on a different screen. I'll also mention MouseBeam because it sort of gets closer to the ideal behavior At least that is my personal opinion. Like when you see that second screenshot you're like "This is it! In all likelihood, it's not though. You do this by opening the Finder and choosing Applications. Deleting those will be an important step in cleaning up your computer. If the app you want to delete is in a folder, open that folder and look for an uninstaller that will do all the work for you.

It will remain in the trash until the next time it empties.

Apple may have released updates or patches that fix some bug that's locking up your computer. Newer operating systems are often limited as to how far back their compatibility can go. To update your iMac , click on the Apple icon and choose App Store.

Apple Footer

This will open a box that shows all pending updates that apply to your system. The easiest way to do this is to use the built-in storage optimization tool. In addition to suggestions like emptying your trash and deleting unused files, the tool will also offer to move some of your files to the cloud. These will go to your iCloud Drive, which you may be using already.

One thing to keep in mind is that iCloud Drive is only free for the first 5GB. Often an iMac is frozen for reasons that have nothing to do with software issues. It could be a hardware issue.

If you hear the internal fan running fairly often, the constant freeze-ups could simply be a symptom of your system overheating.
