Windows 10 mouse stutter

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 in October 2017, I have noticed that my mouse pointer stutters when opening a new program or playing games. This has made mouse heavy games almost unplayable as the mouse stutters its way around the screen.

I sought advice on Reddit and StackOverflow, however, the advice found there did not resolve the issue. I have now found a solution that works for me:

  1. Open the Start Menu
  2. Type “mouse”
  3. Select “Change your mouse settings”
  4. Go to Pointer Options
  5. Uncheck “Enhance pointer precision”
  6. Click apply

Since making the change, no stutter.
