    Where change the mouse LOD (lift off distance)?

    Does anyone have a clue where to change the LOD value (lift off distance) with the Microsoft Surface Precision mouse? Since it can't be done in the Mouse and Keyboard Center, I was hoping that the value perhaps could be found as a key in the registry, a line in an *.inf or *.ini file or in a similar way elsewhere? Anyone got a suggestion? I'm using the Microsoft Surface Precision mouse, very expensive but I love it. However, the skates need replacement every now and then. This time I bought cheramic skates. They are so good that I don't even have to touch the mouse, it slides so easy that it moves by mind power alone. Almost. The problem is that these skates are a little thicker than regular pads and therefore the LOD need to be adjusted.

    Best regards

    DPI and LOD are on 90% of mice a hardware preset (handled by chip on mouse side) .

    The mice that can let you customize them through a control app / driver are very rare and do it with tricks , the rest use merely a hardware button on the mouse or combo clicks to help achieve that .

    Microsoft Surface Precision are one of those "As Is" mice , no place to change that feature as it is hardware side .

    Hello mr Mayor.
    Thanks for your answer. I will have to solve it by tampering with the mouse bottom plate in some way. I'm just curious, how do you really know that this is the case with the Surface Precision mouse?

    that there is not claim in specifications LOD is tweak-able nor is part of its driver settings .

    and while this mouse is supposed to be blutooth , communication between blutooth mice and blutooth receivers is known to be limited to pairing protocol so not to be left open for viral attacks .

    and even if you have a wired version you will have to work on your own COM program trying to program mouse ROM hoping it is R/W and not just a printed chip which i am sure is not the case since the mouse do not get firmware updates .

    so much fuss over nothing .
