To adjust the mouse speed on a Windows 10 screen, follow these steps:

  • Enter mouse in the search bar. Pick mouse settings from the results. Select Additional mouse options when the Settings window appears.
  • Adjust the speed with the slider in the Mouse Properties Control Panel applet, then test it by double-clicking the test folder icon. The faster you set the speed, the faster you’ll have to press the mouse buttons to get a double-click to work. Select Apply to save the update if you want to retain it. If you don’t save your changes, the configuration will revert to its previous state before you opened the Settings window.
  • To adjust the speed at which the mouse cursor or pointer travels around the screen, go to the Pointer Options tab of the Mouse Properties dialog box.
  • The less you press the mouse, the quicker the cursor moves. To make the cursor go the same distance when the speed is slowed, you must move the mouse further. Select Apply once you’ve reached the desired speed.
