Trackpoint Registry Tweak


A while back I made adjustments in the registry to increase the speed of my lenovo trackpoint but wasn't able to find documentation online and its been a while. I'm trying to make it faster than the maximum allowed in windows UI 'mouse' options

Here is how to modify the registry to increase Mouse/pointer speed.

The mouse registry stores information necessary to configure the behavior of the mouse. The mouse registry entries are located under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse registry key.

You can set two acceleration thresholds for the mouse. To set the first threshold, set the value of the MouseThreshold1 registry entry. The default value of this entry is 6. To set the second threshold, set the value of the MouseThreshold2 registry entry. The default value of this entry is 10. The following code examples show how to set these registry entries.

You can also set the speed of the mouse pointer by setting the MouseSpeed registry entry. The value of this entry can be 0, 1, or 2. The default value is 1. The following code example shows how to set this registry entry.


From a command prompt just run: REGEDIT and then navigate the above listed registry key values.  You might already have this set to the maximum value but this is how you can modify via the registry.

Ignore the word "Copy" that is prior to the registry mouse settings in the above post.  There is no copy necessary all you have to do is change the DWORD values to change the settings.
