Mouse settings

In reply to: mouse cursor gone out of control

Had a terrible problem with wireless mouse on my laptop in Windows 10. It was totally unworkable. After much ado and angst fixed by going into mouse settings and in advanced settings turned off Click Lock and that fixed it. Mouse still quite super sensitive but controllable.

Similar Here But With "Enhance Pointer Precision" Setting

In reply to: Mouse settings

Control Panel-Mouse icon-Pointer Options tab, then UNCHECK the "Enhance pointer precision" box. This fixed the mouse jumping to and fro.

Hope this helps.
