At my company we have some "public computers" (accessible for everyone who passes by) on the workfloor. Those computers run in some kind of kiosk mode due to security reasons.

They connect to a virtual Windows 7 desktop through VMware Horizon Client. The desktop has been stripped off so people can only use 2 applications and logout. This means they can't access the control panel etc themselves to adjust the mouse sensitivity.

TL;DR: Is there a way to change the mouse sensitivity for another user on the desktop?

EDIT: I only want to change the mouse cursor speed of a user on a specific desktop.

  • Load the other user's hive in regedit and change the mouse sensitivity settings there. – dsstorefile1 Sep 21 '18 at 7:22
  • Create a registry setting as a bat or powershell script, and run as a logon script. The registry path is:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse, and find MouseSpeed, change the value as you want. then use the group policy to set it as a startup script for the RDP users. – OOOO Sep 21 '18 at 7:38
  • Thanks for the replies so far. Will that script change the cursor speed for that user on all desktops in the company or only a specific desktop? (I've edited the question to make it more clear.) – Thimo Demey Sep 21 '18 at 7:47
