Script to change mouse setting

Posted on 2007-11-27

My laptop is used on a docking station in the office and at home but for reasons I can not locate the mouse sensitivity must be changed depending on the location.

I normally change the setting as soon as I log on and while that is not a big deal it is a multiple step process.

I can figure out the script to prompt for location but I have no idea where the mouse setting are stored or how to change them programmatically.

Usually the mouse's sensibility can be modified any time from Settings/Control Panel/Mouse menu. All mouse settings are stored there.
Or you can also go here: http://sine.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/2315

<<<from Settings/Control Panel/Mouse menu

If you are refering to a manual process of changing the mouse setting with the reference above, that is how I change it now.

Is what you said a reference to some place in the folder tree?

Yes.

The other reference I gave you is only if you want to change it through the code.
