    Screen Coordinates

    Is there a program that displays the screen coordiantes in ordered pair format (x, y) whenever you move your mouse?

    If you go into Microsoft Paint and move the cursor into the drawing area, it will show the coordinates in the bottom right-hand corner of the window. But other than that, I don't think there's a way to find the coordinates of the cursor when operating other programs. There are many more people here at SitePoint who are much more tech-savvy than I am, so I could be wrong about that.

    goodluck..

    if you want to do this outside a browser you could look on google for a simple VB,C program that could do this for you.. if you have no luck just PM me and i can throw some code together its all pretty simple under windows using some libraries and im sure in *nix that feature already exists, you'd just need to find it
