    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    I suggest you could try editing the following registry key to change the default cursor speed:


    Note that the valid range of values for the key is 0 to 20, with a default value of 10.

    For more details I suggest you could refer to the Doc: Modifying cursor speed Thank you.
