Windows sensitivity slider 5/11 is apparently a sens of 0.75 without acceleration.
I assume you have "Enhance pointer precision" disabled.
At 1500 dpi, this will mean for 1mm of movement, you get 1500*0.75 / 25.4 (44) pixels of movement.
At 1680 x 1050 resolution, that corresponds to 2.6 percent of your screen width.
At a pointer speed setting of 6/11, for every one mouse count your computer will move the pointer one pixel on your screen, a 1:1 ratio. If the mouse pointer speed it set higher or lower than 6, Windows will artificially modify the mouse input. For instance, at the 7/11 mark, your computer moves the cursor 1.5 pixels for every one mouse count and at the 11/11 mark, your pointer moves 3.5 pixels for every one mouse count. This means that not only does Windows skip pixels, it actually can become impossible for the mouse cursor to land on certain columns. Conversely if you have your slider at the 5/11 mark, your pointer will move .75 pixels for every one mouse count. Since computers cannot show 1.5 pixels, it rounds to either 1 or 2 making uneven mouse movements.
The exact multipliers for these values go as follows:
6/11 (default) - 1.00x
1/11 - 0.0625x
2/11 - 0.125x
3/11 - 0.25x
4/11 - 0.50x
5/11 - 0.75x
7/11 - 1.50x
8/11 - 2.00x
9/11 - 2.50x
10/11 - 3.00x
11/11 - 3.50x
With a 12k DPI mouse running at 12k, whether you use acceleration or not, you will NEVER have fine grained control on your desktop. That is simply a fact---unless you're telling me that you can accurately position your mouse down to tenths of millimetres.
if you increase your pixel count within your current monitor size.
you have more space.
* at the same CONTAINER SIZE;
since a 20pixel by 20pixel image in a 20pixel canvas will fit. * within a container of 24"
if you place that same image in a 100pixel canvas, it will not fit. * within a container of 24"
it will be smaller and you will have space.
it will look more detailed regardless, because it's smaller. * because the pixels have gotten smaller to fit 24"
it's already scaled 100%; true to the image. and instantly looks better/more detailed AND you have space.
