If you have tried playing games, especially FPS games, on your Windows 10 PC without a fancy gaming mouse, chances are you have noticed that your mouse movement is not consistent. Basically, the movement of your mouse changes depending on how fast you move it. For example, if you hear some enemies coming from behind and you try to quickly rotate, it will rotate more than needed. Just because you are moving the mouse really fast. Similarly, if you are climbing stairs in a game like PUBG, you will need to move the mouse a lot more than needed. Just because you are moving the mouse very slowly. This behavior happens because of mouse acceleration. Logitech gaming mice have a technology called Delta Zero. Basically, the mouse cursor will move the same distance irrespective of how fast or slow you are moving the mouse. This is something very important, especially for gamers who tend to rely on their muscle memory. Today, I will show you how to fully disable the mouse acceleration on Windows 10 PC.
