I sometimes plug in my Wacom Bamboo tablet to my PC and I use the Wacom Bamboo mouse instead of the normal Microsoft mouse at those times. Now I would like to have different mouse settings for these 2 mice (settings like acceleration etc.)

Is there any way to create, maintain & apply such custom mouse profiles in Windows (XP)?


Might this be something useful for you?


I believe the answer is "No". At least not in a default Windows set up.

However, there are tools to switch between settings, such as "Mouse Speed Switcher" - pointed out by Stefan Thyberg, which is available here: http://www.gphotoshow.com/mouse-speed-switcher.php

I've never used this software, or anything from that company, and can't vouch for it, but wanted to mention that such solutions exist.
