How to make modifications to mouse options persist after shu

by engelbmj / January 30, 2007 9:54 AM PST

I have a dell laptop, with XP. When I modify the mouse options in
control panel to make the mouse more sensitive to my finger movements,
I find these changes only apply to my current session - I have to make
the same changes next time I boot up the computer. Is there a way to
make these changes permanent? Thanks.

Make the changes but don't shutdown your normal way. LOG OUT and then shutdown. Some report this makes some items stick.

No luck. Think it has anything to do with some Logitech software I have installed for a bluetooth mouse I use occasionally? I might try uninstalling this.

Anyone have any other ideas?

I bet that's it.

See if Logitech has updated their stuff.

The problem was Logitech

I had the latest software from Logitech, so that wasn't the problem. However, after uninstalling Logitech software, the problem went away. Logitech was the problem. Even better, my bluetooth mouth works w/o the software, so I don't even need it. Thanks.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
