Good evening,

I use a Microsoft Intellimouse Pro with the "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center" as software. I wonder if it would be possible to change mouse DPI with a powershell command\script directly so I can execute it whenever I wanna switch my mouse DPI instead of going into the MMKC app and change it

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I’m not sure about the Intellimouse.

    Some mice store settings in the Registry. Powershell could modify registry settings using Set-ItemProperty cmdlet, in which case the answer is yes.

    Some mice use the ini file to store settings (basically in ProgramFiles\AppName). In this case, you could modify the .ini file (this is just a text file), using the power shell Replace operator.

    Other than that, there is no official documentation for this
