Windows 7: Windows 7 Mouse Acceleration Help!

10 Dec 2011   #51

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
Found the fix for the Synaptics TouchPad


I have found a fix for my computer where I wanted to get rid of that "mouse acceleration". The setting is called "Momentum" in the Synaptics TouchPad properties:

1. Open Control Panel;
2. Go to "Devices and Printers";
3. Click on "Mouse";
4. In Mouse Properties, click on the "Device Settings" tab;
5. Select your device (in my case "Synaptics TouchPad") and click "Settings...";
6. In "Properties for Synaptics TouchPad"'s left pane, expand the section called "Pointing";
7. Click on "Momentum";
8. On the right pane, uncheck "Enable Momentum".

This will stop the mouse from accelerating on your screen when using the touchpad.

Hi Mark. Much like Maggy and RacerX I use a trackball. It's an older model built into the keyboard just below the home row and is incredibly convenient, not to mention a pretty good fps control device.

I'v essentially stayed with xp because of this legacy hardware. I havn't had a chance to try your reg file with teh increased acceleration, but now I'm hopeful I'll be moving to Win 7 shortly. Thanks!

P.S. will the reg file work equally well with a usb and ps2 device (I have both types with my trusty Focus 7200 keyboard)?

Yes, they will work with both USB and PS2.
Just make sure that 'Enhance pointer precision' is ON, and reboot or logout after applying each new reg file.

Accel will be a little higher for PS2 at 100Hz update rate (than USB @ 125Hz), and somewhat lower for PS2 at 200Hz.
(I understand the PS2 update rate can be changed to either 100Hz or 200Hz using some mechanism.)

Let me know how it goes, and try a few reg files from:
... if Maggie's reg file is not right.

Working great on the desktop! Solved a world of problems and plenty of reg files to choose from, (but I think I'm going to stick with your 90-3). The only issue are games, but I saw mention of profiles for them somewhere in teh thread.

Thanks again, I sure appreciate it

Mouse acceleration turned off only for the mouse, not the touch pad
Sorry for the long tittle. Is it possible to turn the mouse acceleration on only when using the touchpad on my laptop and off when I'm using the mouse? I usually don't use the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in if that's any help. If nothing else, maybe a driver will do the trick? Pavel
