A pointer or a mouse cursor is a graphical image on the display device that imitates the movement of a pointing device such as a mouse, touchpad, or stylus pen. In simple terms, it shows where your mouse should perform its next action, i.e., opening an application or surfing the internet. The more time it takes your system to process your mouse movement, the worse the user experience, i.e., while playing games or doing day-to-day activities, we want our pointing device to be very responsive. Today, we’re going to talk about a new feature developed by Microsoft, “Enhance Pointer Precision.”

Enhance Pointer Precision helps accelerate the pointer, reducing overall lag associated with cursor movement. This feature is a breakthrough for people working in graphics designing fields as the precision of slow cursor movement makes their life a lot easier. But for regular Windows users, this specific feature may not add any extra values. This tutorial will guide you through the steps to enable or disable “Enhance Pointer Precision” on your Windows 11 machine.
