If you need or want to know your mouse DPI, you can always check it online, on the manufacturer’s website, or use the manufacturer’s software that should probably have such information written somewhere. Also, you can always use some of the DPI analyzer websites that should allow you to figure out that type of data.
However, what if you have no internet, or are just curious and want to find it yourself, you should know that there is an option that will let you do that, and this is what you need to do.
How to Check Mouse DPI on Windows 10
Checking your mouse DPI is a process that involves the following steps:
- First, you have to run Mouse Settings, by typing “Mouse settings” in the Search box
and left-clicking them when they appear in the results.
- Once you do that, select “Mouse” from the left-side menu,
scroll down until you get to “Additional mouse options” and enter them.
- Select the “Pointers Options” tab and uncheck the square next to “Enhance Pointer Precision”
and press “Apply” and “OK”.
- Open MS Paint, either by typing “MS Paint” in the Search box
and left-clicking it when it shows up in the results,
or by going to Start > Windows Accessories > Paint.
- When the Paint opens, check if it is zoomed to 100% and, fix it if it isn’t.
- Select any Brush Tool and move your mouse horizontally, for six-seven centimeters, from 0-5 pixels
and make sure you remember the number written in the left-bottom corner.
- Repeat this process multiple times (at least three), calculate the average value of the measurements and there you go. The number that you get should represent your mouse DPI value.
