PowerShellMouseSpeed

SilverAzide » January 18th, 2018, 4:29 pm

Here is another example of running a PowerShell .ps1 script from Rainmeter...

This skin comes from a discussion on another thread regarding how to control mouse sensitivity (analogous to using the Control Panel Mouse applet).

With assistance from JSMorley and after a lot of poking around, here is a method based on a PowerShell script found on the Microsoft TechNet website here, with additional cribbing from JSMorley's PowerShellTime skin.
