Re: hotkey utility program to adjust mouse sensitivity'

You could set your mouse to the less sensitive settings then export the following registry key and call it Retouching.reg:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

Now the set the mouse to the more sensitive setting and export it as Editing.reg or whatever name makes the most sense to you.

From here you have two registry files that will change the mouse to the desired sensitivity. You can just click on the corresponding file to make the change or take it further by creating shortcuts to the files using the -s switch with regedit to bypass the confirmation dialog. The shortcuts might look something like this:

C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe -s "C:\Retouching.reg"


C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe -s "C:\Editing.reg "

You could go further still and assign a windows desktop hotkey to each shortcut or create a script in PS to fire each shortcut and point to the script via action etc and setup a PS shortcut key to fire the action or script. (I can't emember if PS allows firing scripts directly with a hotkey hence the action suggestion).

Even simpler would be to copy the shortcuts to the windows desktop task bar so they will be instantly available when PS is open.

Backup the registry or create a restore point first if you are uncomfortable editing the registry.
