Enable Active monitor follows mouse by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When I first installed Plasma I got confused as it seemed some applications open only on my second monitor. To fix that I enabled Window Management -> Window Behavior -> Active monitor follows mouse. I think it would be good to have that enabled by default.

Remember that there also is "Activate window on mouse hover" or something like that, which is disabled by default. So one thing would be changed by hovering the mouse, and one not. This might lead to some confusion.
But I personally agree with what you suggest.

Yeah, I'm not talking about the option that activates windows on hover.

What I meant that by default we will have 2 different mouse hover behaviours - active screens will switch, but active windows will not. Still it is up to others to decide
