Thank you, Andy, for sharing this incredible expertise.
Mouse control works with the above setting.

With "Quick Edit mode" enabled, mouse control is lost even in a standard
cmd console using Windows Vim.
That is a bug (or a feature) of Windows console Vim. I opened a thread
on vim_use to see if this can be improved.
