UPDATE: Download the latest version from the main project page. There is also a version of this utility with a graphical interface that’s easier to use.
It’s time for a new version of the command-line version of the dragsens utility, which allows one to change the mouse sensitivity for detecting mouse drag actions in Windows.
A comment posted by Mark suggested the addition of a parameter that would show the current sensitivity settings. I added a /D parameter which, when provided by itself in the parameter list, will output the current drag sensitivity settings for the X and Y axes:
This new parameter may also be combined with the existing parameters. For example, to display the current sensitivity settings, set the X and Y sensitivity to 20, and then display the new settings, enter dragsens 20 /d on the command line:
I took this opportunity to clean up the help text a little bit, too. Entering dragsens or dragsens /? on the command line will display the following:
Changes the default drag sensitivity.
DRAGSENS [pixels] [/X pixels] [/Y pixels] [/D]
pixels The number of pixels the mouse must travel to initiate
a drag operation. Providing just a number will change both
the X axis and the Y axis to the same value.
/X Change the setting for the X axis (horizontal).
/Y Change the setting for the Y axis (vertical).
/D Display the current drag sensitivity settings.
