How to change mouse sensivity for multiple profiles in windows xp

Posted on 2012-08-29
Last Modified: 2012-09-25

We recently had an issues with a couple of computers that the mouse sensivity was too fast and many users use the same PC.

Is there a way that we can change the mouse sensivity for multiple profiles, instead of doing it one by one. Computers are locked down so the users can’t do it by themselves.

Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately it's a user specific preference so that makes it tough to do a mass change.

    If you use group policy you could use a registry preference.

    You will need at least one Windows 7 machine with group policy management editor enabled. - Registry is about half way down

    XP machines will need a KB installed on each machine. -

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse
