    How can i increase mouse sensitivity in Skyrim?

    • on the main menu the mouse cursor is sluggish
    • in-game mouse sensitivity is too low

    Things i've tried:

    • increasing Look Sensitivity in-game:

      enter image description here

    • In my SkyrimPrefs.ini file:

      • Increasing [Controls]\fMouseHeadingSensitivity from 0.0125 to 1.0500
      • Adding [Controls]\fMouseHeadingXScale = 1.0500
      • Adding [Controls]\fMouseHeadingYScale = 1.0500
      • Turning off mouse acceleration: Changing [Controls]\bMouseAcceleration from 1 to 0
      • Turning off v-sync: Adding [Display]\iPresentInterval = 0
    • Changing Detail in the launcher to Low from auto-detected Ultra enter image description here

    • Running in Windowed mode enter image description here
    • Turning off Steam's Overlay UI: enter image description here
    • Increasing my mouse pointer speed in Windows enter image description here

    Note: My question is different from How can I sync vertical/horizontal mouse sensitivities?, which looks to make the poor mouse sensitivity equal in both directions. i want not poor mouse sensitivity.

    Note: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini"

    Note: And restarting Skyrim after each change.

    Note: Including details of what i've tried are only presented to shut people up who bitch about a "lack of research effort". i should be able to ask my question with explanation, justification, or research. Also people love screenshots - it draws them in like moths.

  • The suggested SkyrimPrefs.ini i was using was the wrong one.

    Using Process Monitor i was able to figure out that the correct one is:

    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini
    

    e.g.

    C:\Users\Ian\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini
    

    enter image description here

    Changing [Controls]\fMouseHeadingSensitivity to

    fMouseHeadingSensitivity=0.1250  (new)
    fMouseHeadingSensitivity=0.0125  (old)
    

    did the trick.

  • Alright, so for the last 2 days I've been trying to figure out how to solve this issue with Skyrim, Fallout 3, and New Vegas. When starting Skyrim, my mouse responds fine, but my windows cursor also..., my mouse would lag, jitter, shift speeds randomly, and 'slide on'. These things, apart from the windows cursor appearing, also happen in both Fallouts. (I figured they all have the same problem, since... Settings) Disabling 2nd screen. Shutting down some background processes. (used to be unnecessary) Changing mouse sensitivity. Re-installing Skyrim. Enabling and Disabling MSI-Afterburner. Take note
