Before You Begin
Before you edit your registry, make sure your pointer speed is turned up to the maximum in your touchpad / pointing stick software or in the mouse control panel. To get there:
1. Navigate to the Windows Control Panel. You can get there by opening the Start menu and searching for “control panel.”
2. Open the mouse menu. If you don’t see the Mouse icon, set the “View by” menu to Large icons.
3. Open your touchpad driver (if there’s a link to it). It may have its own tab (ex: Dell Touchpad)
4. Set the pointer speed to max. You may have to set it separately for the touchpad and pointing stick.
5. Navigate to the pointer options tab in the Mouse Properties window.
6. Move the pointer speed slider all the way to the right and uncheck “Enhance pointer precision.”
7. Click OK.
Edit Your Registry for Maximum Pointer Speed
1. Open the Registry Editor. You can get there by hitting Windows + R, entering regedit in the box and hitting Enter.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelMouse by opening the navigation tree in the left window pane.
3. Set the MouseSpeed to 2 by double-clicking on MouseSpeed and then entering 2 in the value field.
4. Set MouseThreshold1 to 0.
5. Set MouseThreshold2 to 0.
6. Close the registry editor and reboot your PC.
