Windows Mouse settings for all users
Has anyone encountered that mouse settings seems to be only per user and the configuration only becomes affective after a re-logon?
I am trying to deselect or disable the tick box in Windows 8 for enhance pointer precision in the Windows mouse properties for all users.
The settings are related to the HKCU\Control Panel\Mouse path but I have noticed that the settings altered in the registry such as : MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1 and MouseThreshold2 as value of 0 does not become affective for a relogon and not immediately affective when the registry settings are altered.
I tried altering the reg keys in HKU\Default and this did not work either.
Has anyone adjusted mouse per user settings that are effective immediately or per system?

Mouse settings are definetly per user. I would suggest using Group Policy for those settings. If you can't use GP, you can write a script that will load the hive of each user (via their ntuser.dat file) who already have an account on the system, and then do the same for Default user. This will apply the settings to all users who currently have a local account, as well as any new users since they will pull from Default. HKU\Default is not what you think it is, this is not the default profile. C:\Users\Default\NTUser.dat is.
So you would load the hive, modify the registry as needed, and unload the hive. Then move on to the next user. Not too difficult to script out.
