I wonder is there any way to change touchpad speed/sensitivity, independent of mouse speed? I'm using Windows 7 x64 on an Asus K53U AMD laptop. ASUS Smart Gesture has no options related to what I need. At the moment in mouse settings I have set max cursor speed, it suits my needs really well when working on touchpad, but when I plug mouse in it is too fast and pointer speed must be decreased...

Update 1: I should add one more thing, I've just tried using "AutoSensitivity" but it doesn't work in my case, at all.

Update 2: Tried "Mouse Speed Switcher" as well, no matter which slider I move, for touchpad or mouse speed, they both slow down or speed up...

Hopefully some of you may help, Dragoslav.

Install the drivers for your touchpad if they are not installed and adjust it's sensitivity from within the touchpad tab in Control Panel --> Mouse.

Alternatively, install drivers for your mouse (logitech and Microsoft frequently have these) to adjust settings for your mouse independently.

Thanks for the answer, I have installed drivers, they come with ASUS Smart Gesture. My mouse is HP, it has no separate drivers, using Windows generic drivers. However, I managed to get it all working as I wanted using Mouse Speed Switcher. – Dragoslav Miljevic Mar 27 '13 at 15:48
