This tool gives you very fine-grained control over the speed of your pointer in Windows (XP thru Win10). The top slider has twice the resolution of the built-in mouse control panel in Windows.
If you need even finer control the bottom two sliders slow the mouse down further. The new speed is a percentage of the speed set with the top slider. You can even set different speeds for left/right and up/down. This fine-grained adjustment requires that the app be running as administrator so that it can install a "mouse hook" which allows this low-level control. No mouse hook is used if you don't check the "enable" box at right.
Plus, you can change which direction is "up" for your mouse, so that you can hold it rotated to the left or right (or even upside down) if that's more ergonomic for you.

To install: unzip and copy files into the folder of your choice.
This is an open beta. It
does not currently remember it's settings when you quit, etc. If there is
interest, I'll develop a paid, full featured version for $1 that will have these
tiny usability enhancements. Email me if that is
something you'd buy so I know that's worth working on (link below)!
