How to Turn off Mouse Acceleration on Windows 11

Mouse acceleration is a feature that can seriously throw you off while gaming. But not every Windows user is a gamer. Fortunately, turning off this feature is easy and the whole process only takes less than a minute.

Hi, my name is Megan. I’m just a regular PC user like you. Not long ago, I updated my Lenovo computer to Windows 11 and I was a bit frustrated with this mouse acceleration feature while clicking my Logitech mouse. 

In this guide, I’ll show you two quick ways to turn off mouse acceleration on Windows 11 – step by step. Follow me around!

Method 1: Turn off Mouse Acceleration on Control Panel

Step 1: Press Windows + I at the same time to open the Settings app.

Step 2: Navigate to Bluetooth & devices at the left side menu and click it. Find and click Mouse on the right side.

Step 3: Scroll down to find Additional mouse settings. Click on it.

Step 4: The Mouse Properties window pops up. Under the Pointer Options tab, uncheck Enhance pointer precision, and click on Apply and OK.

That should do it.

If the acceleration problem still exists and causing you problems, try Method 2.

Method 2: Turn off Mouse Acceleration in Registry Editor

Editing parameters in the registry editor helps turn off mouse acceleration for good. It’s not hard but needs to take you two to three minutes.

Step 1: Press Windows + R and type “regedit” in the indicator box. Hit Enter key or click OK.

Step 2: Now the Registry Editor is launched. Double-click the HKEY_CURRENT_USER and Control Panel folder folders on the left side menu. 

Then click on the Mouse folder. Double-click and change parameter values of MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1, and MouseThreshold2 to “0”, and click OK.

MouseSpeed: turn off = 0, turn on = 1 (default value).

MouseThreshold1: turn off = 0, turn on = 6 (default value).

MouseThreshold2: turn off = 0, turn on = 10 (default value).

Done. Your mouse acceleration is now turned off completely. If you want to turn on the mouse acceleration again, reset the default values of the three strings above.

That’s it for this short guide. I hope it has helped you get rid of this somewhat annoying feature on Windows 11. If you stil face any problems, leave a comment below and let me know.
