I have a couple of annoying apps and webpages that automatically kick you out if they sense that you are idle. I am trying to bypass this feature by using a mouse jiggler. However, the "jiggle stride" cannot be customized so it's hard to have the jiggler jiggle multiple windows & chrome tabs at the same time.

Is there a chrome extension that allows me to simulate mouse movement on multiple tabs? Or is there any other program that will allow me to have customizable jiggle stride to jiggle multiple windows at once?

Mouse Move seems like a more customizable and powerful alternative to mouse jiggler which allows you to set stride distance and direction

  • @RockPaperLz-MaskitorCasket I haven't personally tested, but xdotool and python3-autopilot seems promising

  • Thanks Rufus. Those look interesting too. Is Mouse Move only available from the MS store, or is it available directly from the developer as well? Nov 23, 2020 at 2:20

You might be able to use AutoHotkey (FREE) or PowerShell (built in to Windows) to cycle between windows/tabs (using keyboard shortcuts/mouse movement and clicks) and send mouse/keystrokes to the focused window.
