Mouse curser speed/travel


Don't if anyone can help but ....

.. ... I have a logitech wifi mouse and key board which have gone very flakey. I am in correspondence with Logitech about this - with no success so far. They worked ok for several months , and again when I came back from Scotland (after 9 days or so none-use) but both are playing up again.

In the meantime I am having to use an old wired keyboard (which seems ok) and an old wired mouse.

The mouse is currently the problememoticon

The wifi mouse (when it works) travels quickly across the screen. With the manual mouse I have to move it several times for the same distance. For example:

Ones side of screen to other, move:

wifi mouse - 5 cm

manual mouse - 12.5 cms

doesn't seem much but it is a real pain, as I have to keep picking up and putting down the mouse

I have checked mouse settings but cannot see that this aspect can be altered.

Re: Mouse curser speed/travel


have you installed the manufacturers drivers and software for the wired mouse?

it should be under the pointer speed option in the mouse settings.

Chris,
I had something [sign in to see URL] went in the bin after giving it too many chances to behave. I use a wired keyboard and mouse as well as a Wacom (Bamboo) pen and pad, just a small and simple one so as not to take up too much space, works brilliantly. I find more of a connection to the on screen image whilst using a pen for masking and general editing.
Regards,
Alan

Thanks Reg - that's done itemoticonemoticon

Alan - Thanks - I like the wifi mouse and keyboard (when they work) as it is just easier to move them out of the way when working with (paper) files etc. And they cost a bit and worked ok for about two months before going flakey.

Father Christmas bought me a Wacom tablet (inc wifi) for Christmas but I haven't yet tried it out as I have given priority to (trying to) get the mouse/keyboard working. Plus sorting out back up arrangements.

(Very) slowly getting there thoughemoticon
