A strange requirement, the cursor of WAR3 will follow the active transparent window

Anyway, I have a small request now.

I let War3(v1.27) run in the background, then I switch to another window (such as a text editor), and then make it transparent (using Glass2K) so that I can observe the window of War3 in other applications at the same time. It looks good, the only problem is that when I move the mouse, the window of War3 can also sense and immediately follow the mouse of the active window. I want to know how to prevent it.

I tried to reset the mouse position by triggering, but it didn't work. I did not find any useful information. In addition, the operating system I use is Windows 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just like this(note that the mouse does not move when starting the screenshot):

I have no idea :/
But have you thought about getting a second monitor? It's quite the game changer, I have my map on one screen and my IDE on the other. I'm using my TV that was just gathering dust in the closet.
