    Default Command to enable / disable the mouse-setting "Enhance pointer precision" ?

    Is there a command to enable / disable the mouse-setting "Enhance pointer precision" ?
    Also, where in registry is that setting stored ?

    I was thinking about using a reg-script but I cannot find any setting in registry.
    I have searched on the net and it seems that others are also wondering where it is stored.

    Control Panel should have a mouse section, all your controls will be in there. I'm not at home, so I cannot look it up the exact section or choices within.

    Of course there is a section in Control Panel, but thatīs not what I meant.
    You missunderstood the question...
    I asked for a command to change settings.

    I have made a program that changes some settings and also starts another program where other settings can be changed.

    However, after posting I found the settings in registry.
    Iīm modifying my reg-script to fix the problem.

    "Enhance pointer precision" is called "MouseSpeed" in registry.

    Itīs located under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]

    1 = enabled
    0 = disabled

    It may not answer your question, but I wrote a post on this Enhance Pointer Precision feature.

    Correct, it doesnīt...
    As I already posted above, I have found the setting in registry.
    My reg-script is working, with regedit running I can see the settings changing.
    The only problem is that the settings are ignored.
    Even restarting explorer doesnīt help so there is something weird going on....
    Iīm going to try reg.exe instead of a reg.script.

    Well, you can read more about Enhance Pointer Precision if you follow the link in my post: An Overview of Mouse Technology

    The link goes to a BIG post on overclock.net: An Overview of Mouse Technology
