Most probably a CodeBlocks linked against wxWidgets >= 3.0, not sure if it only happens on Windows 10, but i have the same issue with my CodeBlocks with wxWidgets 3.1.2+, but i can live with that :).

Its sort of funny, it happens only on the notebook tabs, not only the ones of the editor pane, but the tabs in all panes like management, logs. If the mouse hovers on a tab the keyboard focus is lost, if the mouse leaves the tab it returns where it was. Seems to be a CodeBlocks issue because it doesn't happen in the AUI sample.

i'm using Windows 7.
Code::Blocks 17.12 version.
i don't have sure if it's the last, but i will see it.
"wxWidgets" sorry,  i have seen these project type, but i don't know it.

Because it is a feature.
Settings -> Environment -> Notebook appearance -> Enable scrolling with mousewheel

thank you so much for all
i need ask: why these feature is enabled by default?
by my experience, these is a bad feature. because we can move the mouse without we know it. that's why i was getting very trouble :(

Because some people like it and don't have trouble with accidental mouse moves.
