Configuring Separate Accelerations for Mice (Per-Pointer Speeds)

I have a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad, a wireless Logitech laser mouse (USB) and an X-Gaming X-Arcade trackball (connected via USB).

The X-Arcade trackball is extremely slow compared to the touchpad and logitech mouse when it comes to pointer movement.

The Windows 7 mouse control panel doesn't allow me to adjust the speed of the mouse devices individually. Is there a way to adjust the speed multiplier based on the individual USB HID device? I'm guessing I have to edit something directly in the registry for this to work...

Natively, this is impossible. You'll need third party software or software that came with your mice. And THAT is if the drivers even bother to support their own settings. A lot of non-gaming mice just read the speed settings from the OS without allowing you to set a separate setting for the device itself. . .


The Logitech should use its own Setpoint software. There should be a setting that says something like "Use Native OS driver blah blah blah" Turn that off to set a separate setting for the mouse. I can't remember if the Synaptic trackpad has that similar setting. I can find an answer by firing up my laptop, which has a Synaptic trackpad.
