The super-sensitivity of the keyboard and mouse make this laptop very difficult to use.  It has been this way since the first day I used it.  Is there any way I can decrease the sensitivity?  Slight movements of the mouse make things jump around.  Hitting keys sometimes produce unwanted effects.  The cursor goes to unexpected places.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Change mouse sensitivity

1. First click the "Start" button and select "Control Panel"

2. Then click "mouse" to enter the mouse properties window

3. First look at the "mouse button" in the mouse properties, drag the speed bar, you can adjust the speed by yourself

4. Click "Pointer Options" and drag to adjust the speed of pointer movement

5. Click "pulley" to set the number of rows of the pulley

6. After setting, click "Apply" and then click "OK", so that the sensitivity of the mouse will take effect

Thanks for this suggestion to reduce the sensitivity of the mouse.  Much appreciated.

 

Is there a parallel suggestion to make the keyboard less sensitive?  Things jump around with the slightest random touch to the keyboard.  I've worked with computers for many years and never had this issue.

1. Hold down the keyboard win+R key to call up the run box, and enter regedit in the run box to call up the registry editor, as shown in the figure below.
2. Find the HKEY_CURRENT_USER option in the registry edit page, click on the option to enter the next page
3. Find the Control Panel option in the new pop-up page, click on the option to enter the next page
4. Find the Keyboard option in the newly pop-up page, click on the option to enter the next page
5. Modify the keyboarddelay on the newly pop-up page. The smaller the number, the smaller the delay. Modify keyboardspeed. The larger the number, the faster the speed. Just modify the number to the value you want.
