Logitech M325 mouse.
The mouse speed was set a little high for my liking, so I decided to
slow it down.
Start | Settings | System Settings | Input Devices | Mouse
Flat means the pointer moves the same distance no matter how fast you
move the mouse
Adaptive means the pointer moves further the faster you move the mouse.
I checked Flat
Now slide the Pointer Speed to the last check mark on the left (slowest)
The setting changes aren't applied until you hit Apply.
Or don't. It won't hurt your system, but what will happen is the slow
mouse setting will be made and the Apply button will be grayed out. And
because the crapware developers don't bother to test their sloppy
programs, the mouse pointer will now barely, barely move. It will take
at least a minute to move the pointer a few inches. When it first
happened I thought it had killed my mouse. I turned it off and back on,
seemed fine. So I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to logout and back in, but the
mouse was back to life on that logout screen. So I hit Cancel to bring
me back in, and the slow setting was still there. I had to use Alt+Tab
and navigate via keyboard back to the Mouse setting screen, and tab
through until I could change the setting back to the middle speed.
A total hobbyware fiasco.
So test it if you want, but it's not so easy to recover from.
MS is doomed.
