  1. Slow, sticking, or dragging mouse?


    Here is a tip for you that I did not find online. If your mouse seems to be jumpy, stuck, dragging, or slow; this is what I do. First, find Control Panel kind of hidden in Windows 10, then System, and Device Manager. This is a very useful tool for diagnostics and too bad that it's buried in three or more sub-menus that are not easy to find. I simply click on the mouse 'driver', click the red X at the top to remove it, and...wait you must be online to do this! Did I mention that? Don't remove your driver files unless you have a backup copy or a way to install them by downloading them online! After you remove the installed driver file, you can just unplug and replug your mouse in, and your system should automatically download the best driver file instantly. After simply uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, the mouse usually works perfectly. It worked for me!

    Windows 10 - Mouse cursor sticks to edge between multiple monitors

    I did get a suggestion that worked: Open the Display settings, use you mouse to drag either the leftmost or right most monitor icon (I have two monitors and a laptop, which is the center monitor) away from the center monitor icon, then release. That forces
    the icon to 'snap back' to the center monitor icon. The cursor stops sticking after you do that. If I disconnect the laptop to travel, etc., the problem sometimes reoccurs but is corrected by just repeating the steps. .
