Different mouse speeds on Lenovo W540?

#1 Post by Annorax » Tue Sep 05, 2017 6:20 pm

Hi guys,

I have a Lenovo W540 laptop running Windows 7 Professional. I have a wired generic USB IBM black/red mouse which works nicely. I recently purchased a Lenovo Bluetooth Laser Mouse. The bluetooth mouse connects fine but it moves WAY too fast to be usable, while the trackpad/USB mouse/nub work at a normal speed. I can manually adjust the mouse speed in Windows control panel, but if I set it to where the bluetooth mouse is usable, the other pointing devices mentioned are super slow.

Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity/speed for 2 different mice on the same laptop, or some way to slow down only the bluetooth mouse? When moving around I use the bluetooth mouse but at my desk I use the USB mouse and it's cumbersome to change settings manually.

There is 2 settings, one for ultraNav and one for ordinary mice. Adjust both settingd to attain desired result.

Now stop complaining and get back to work with your "wrongly configured" box of pixels.
