How to get Linux Mint to stop following my mouse?


This should be a quick fix probably but Googling it showed no results for the most part. I need to stop Linux from following my mouse when I move it to my 2nd screen. I like moving my mouse to my 2nd screen when i'm watching Youtube videos and it likes following it so I can't see the video.

Also I have 2 screens for a reason... why is it by default following 1 of them anyways?

Sounds like mouse-focusing?
