The default setting in Windows 10 is right in the middle, and you can adjust it in where you like.


As you adjust the slider, the change in mouse speed will happen immediately (i.e., you don’t need to click other button for the change to take effect). This help you quickly test out different speed options to find the one that you like most in your mouse hardware and personal preferences.
