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.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
