    Can anyone tell me how to make the mouse less sensitive, the slightest movement near my desk causes the screensaver to cut out and return to active windows. I can remember reading something about changing the sensivity of the mouse but cannot remember where. Can this be done only on certain screensavers.
    Regards

    Hiya

    Go to Control Panel. Mouse. If you look at Motion, you can control the speed of your cursor of the mouse.

    Also, depending on which type of mouse you have, other options are available.

    Regards

    Hi Eddie and thanks but I already have the motion as slow as it can go, Motion controls the pointer speed doesn't it, what I am looking for is a way 'if there is one' to make the screensaver less sensitive to movement of the mouse, if you blow on mine the screensaver goes off, d(m) ickey mouse or what.
    Regards

    Hiya

    I've had a look all over, but can't seem to find anything :(

    Have you tried using a different mouse, just to see if its the mouse thats at fault?

    Also, is this a Windows Screensaver, as in not a downloaded version?
