1. Why Mouse Setting Is Important For Gamers?

The gaming experience is the leading reason why you need to set up your gaming mouse. When you first purchase the mouse, it will not be set up for your PC or Mac. In this situation, we would assume that most gamers would use a PC for gaming. Mac is not so popular when speaking of the gaming world.

You will need to have a setup process, which is not complicated at all. It is also not time-consuming as some people have it. Following our upcoming instructions, as well as considering your mouse and PC compatibility are the two tasks when you set up your gaming mouse. After all, we don't wish for a gaming mouse that does not have smooth movement or appropriate sensitivity.

2. Common Problems Of Gaming Mice You May Engage In

Gaming or computer mice sometimes have problems, and that is absolutely normal. There is no device that can last forever without a flaw. Occasionally, a few mistakes come from the mouse itself, but the users. A saying has gone that the system may not be the problem, but the operator is. Here are some faults you may see in mice when you first use them after purchasing.

Movement speed

Movement speed in gaming mice often refers to the too fast or too slow movement of the mouse. But we believe this issue is highly fixable. You can start with adjusting mouse speed on your PC setting. The solution is quite simple, and this won't trigger your user experience after adjustment.

Mouse cursor freezing

This occurs occasionally as your PC has too much to load. For the freezing issue, you need to clear a few windows in the background. Before doing so, you can start with a break of 2 to 5 minutes. After clearing the windows, refresh your PC with Fn and f5 keys at the same time. Temporary freezing is likely to happen during your usage, but the mouse not working at all stands a minor chance.

Battery issue

The faulty battery is engaged with a wireless mouse, but we don't see many cases in this section. You will have the maker warranty and replacement when having a faulty mouse battery. For this one, make sure you check your mouse carefully first. Then, you need to have a neat and clean connection for your gaming mouse.

Double-click problem

The double-click issue is quite the same as the cursor movement, which is too fast or too slow, specifically. However, we have received most questions and complaints about the slow double-click. The solution is also similar to the movement. All you need to do is adjust it in the setting menu.
