    Yet another slow mouse/display issue


    The other day, I posted, looking for help on why my mouse speed had dramatically slowed down, even though I hadn't made any settings changes I was aware of that would cause that effect. The drivers for my USB as well as for my mouse are up-to-date.

    The mouse in question is a Logitech gaming mouse, but I do not remember the exact model number.

    In any case, I finally discovered a third display that I don't normally use was still showing up in my display options, even though I had unplugged it several days prior. I forced it to re-identify and when the extra screen disappeared, things seemed fine.

    Then, a few hours later, I had the same issue with a slow mouse pointer. It wasn't lagging like one might find if the system is slowing down. The best way to describe it was as before, like someone had slowed down the cursor speed. However, this time, when I looked at my display options, there was no phantom display and, subsequently, I am befuddled about what the cause might be.

    After some finagling, I somehow finally did get mouse options open with the cursor speed setting, and, like I suspected, it hadn't changed at all. I do find it sort of weird that I had to jump through hoops to get to it when I used to be able to get to it through Control Panel > Devices > Mouse

    You may have clicked a DPI switch on the mouse itself, some gaming mice have "on the fly" DPI switching to allow fast movements in games and quickly switch to slow movements for precision aiming, I suggest looking for a button near/underneath the mouse wheel, but without knowing the model of mouse, there's not much more help we could offer.

    It's on the bottom of the mouse (the model) G300s.

    Would clicking such a button cause the issue of not being able to drag windows across one monitor to another? I don't think I had mentioned that fun little tidbit.

    Have you remapped the G keys to anything in the Logitech G software?
