I just bought a new Microsoft corded mouse to replace my old Microsoft corded mouse after the rubber on the wheel came off. The new mouse works, but is sluggish. Is this normal for a new mouse? Does it need time to be broken in? I have a Dell desktop computer with Windows 10.

Try a different usb port
If issue persists return it and try maybe a different brand...... Logitech??

I switched USB ports, and it helped. Thank you. But I'm curious--why would a different USB port make a difference?

I have a Logitech wireless mouse for use with my work-issued laptop, but I have been disappointed with it. Perhaps it's because I bought one of the cheapest ones Logitech offers.

All mice are different. Have you looked in here and done anything to the speed?

Perhaps it is a simple case of increasing the speed.

I haven't--I don't know how to do that--but is there a trade-off between speed and accuracy?

One thing I did that helped is that I have the mouse on my desk now instead of on a mouse pad.

I'm not sure what you mean by accuracy. A mouse travels to a spot and you click it.

Depending on the surface type of the desk, you almost always need a mouse pad.
