5 Ways to fix Mouse Input Lag
Mouse delay can occur when you’re using a lower resolution than that of your monitor. Try setting your resolution to maximum. Because, why not? Higher resolution always looks better, and it works better as well. If you are getting input lag only in games, try checking the resolution of those games and change it to the highest. This works most of the time, but if your resolution is already set to the highest, try the other methods that we’ve listed.
Use Full screen mode
This method will only work if you are experiencing input lag in games, because, the option to toggle between Full screen mode and windowed mode only exists in games. If you are running games on Windowed mode, change it to full screen mode. This might fix input lag. The option to toggle between Windowed and Full screen mode is available in video settings option.
Lower your DPI and Sensitivity
Maybe you’re experiencing mouse input lag because the sensitivity that you’ve set is too high for your mouse to handle. You can try lowering them, and see if it fixes your mouse delay or not.
Put mouse in a different USB port
It is possible to experience mouse input lag due to the USB port being faulty. You can try cleaning your USB port or putting your mouse in a different USB port. Or you can try plugging a different device in that port to check if the port is working or not.
Change your mouse
Maybe it’s not a software issue, but a hardware one. If none of the above methods worked then there is a pretty good chance that your mouse is faulty. Ask your mom for a new one, I’m sure she’ll get you one.
