This is something that regular players of the PC platform know more than enough, we refer to the correct use and configuration of the mouse. Specifically, here we refer to the sensitivity and other settings of the aforementioned mouse when playing with our favorite titles in Windows 10.
Before we start, we will tell you that this type of important adjustments when using our mouse to play in Windows, we can do it in different ways. What’s more, we can say that these types of adjustments are especially important in those titles in which we have to point and shoot. And is that some games establish a default sensitivity level based on the device’s dpi settings . At the same time others allow users to customize that level of sensitivity to the maximum.
It is possible that many of you, after a while playing a certain game, already have it configured with the perfect mouse sensitivity. However, when switching to another, these settings change entirely. That is why we are going to tell you that you can use the Sensitivity Matcher program to use those same settings in other games, a program that we download from here.
Copy mouse sensitivity from one game to another
In fact, this is a simple free program for Windows that will be of great help to us when carrying out this task that we discuss with the games. In addition, all this without limitations in terms of titles, since we can copy the sensitivity of the mouse of any game. Yes, in order to use the same sensitivity in the destination, that specific title must allow us to enter a personalized value in this regard.
For all this, the first thing we do is download and run the program that we mention, which is also free and portable, so it does not need installation. Once we see it on the screen, we go to the “Select preset yaw” drop-down menu and check that the game for which we want to copy the sensitivity appears in the list. We select it if it is here, and if not, we opt for the Easure any game option.
Next we open the game from which we want to copy the sensitivity, we point the cursor to the corner of an object to start taking notes. To start recording, we do it with the keyboard shortcut Alt + / and then Alt + Backspace. This forces the cursor in the game to do a complete spin and finish where it was when we started the process. Then we will have the sensitivity value that Sensitivity Matcher has detected.
To finish we go to the title in which we want to copy the sensitivity and we go to the configuration screen . Thus, in the mouse sensitivity part, we introduce the exact value that Sensitivity Matcher has detected from the original game, and that’s it.
Advantages of optimizing the use of the mouse to play games on Windows
Something that we must bear in mind is that along with the keyboard and the screen, the mouse is the peripheral that we use the most when we are in front of a PC. In fact, we handle it a good part of the time, either to work, surf or play, among many other uses. Hence precisely the importance of choosing an element of this type appropriate to our needs. What’s more, investing a little more money in a mouse is something that we will rarely regret in the long run.
But of course, when talking about this specific device, not only does the hardware as such count, but the software that controls it. For example, if we are going to play with it and we need it to be as effective as possible, we will have to waste a few minutes to configure it in the most appropriate way. And this is not only for games, but a good mouse configuration will be very useful in its daily use in all kinds of programs, not to mention browsers when moving around the Internet.
Once we know all this, then we are going to give you a hand so that you can get the most out of this important element in Windows, and especially when playing here.
Windows options to adjust mouse sensitivity
As we have mentioned before, many of the games that we currently install on a PC have their own sensitivity settings. This will allow us, once the software is running, to adjust this very important aspect of the mouse. However, it can also be the case that we do not want to, or cannot change that. If necessary, we can make use of the parameters for the mouse configured in Windows 10, something that we achieve from the Settings application.
Well, at this point, we will say that the Redmond operating system offers us several interesting parameters that we can adjust in this regard. So, next we will see the most important ones that we can calibrate to adjust the mouse settings to play better. Of course, this is the one that will be applicable both to use in the system itself, as in other applications, including the aforementioned games.
It is worth mentioning that, initially, to be able to access these, as we mentioned previously, we will do it from Windows Settings. Thus, to access this section, we can do it through the Win + I key combination. Then, in the window that appears, we click on the devices section. So on the left side of the interface we find the devices that we can configure from here, so we select Mouse.
At this point, we will say that from here we will have the opportunity to adjust various parameters related to the peripheral that we are commenting on. We refer to the simultaneous scroll lines, the left button, the behavior of the center wheel, etc. As you can imagine, these somewhat specific behaviors of the peripheral will be extended to the games we use in Windows 10.
Advanced mouse settings for comfortable gaming
At the same time, for the case that concerns us in these same lines regarding sensitivity, we will have to click on the link called Additional Mouse Options. This will lead us to a new window that corresponds in this case with what we see in the Control Panel in this regard.
As in Settings, here we can exchange the main button of the device. Another parameter that Windows presents us to adjust and that will be very useful in games is to be able to customize the speed of the double click with the primary button. But perhaps one of the parameters that we have the ability to customize here and that will be most useful in the world of video games, is the aforementioned sensitivity.
This is something that we can adjust to a great extent through the control called Select the pointer speed, located at the top of the window. Of course, in order to see this functionality, we must first go to the Pointer Options tab . Well, this function consists of a sliding bar that allows us to adjust the sensitivity of the pointer when we move the mouse over the surface we use.
And to finish we will tell you that to get more out of current games, it could also be very interesting for us to go to the Wheel tab. As you can imagine, from here we will have the opportunity to adjust the movement, both vertical and horizontal, of the central mouse wheel.
And it is that we must bear in mind that more and more elements are used to play, so being able to adjust the sensitivity of this central mouse wheel will also help us in some specific titles.
