As a first troubleshooting step, it’s worth trying to remove the current mouse driver and allow Windows to reinstall it. To do this, right-click the Start button (or press Win + X ) and choose Device management.
Expand the category Mouse and other pointing devices and right-click. Choose Uninstall device, confirm, then restart your PC.
Note that you will need to navigate your computer without a mouse to reach the reboot command.
Tap the Windows key, then press Tab until it focuses on the group of icons on the left. Use the arrow keys to go down to the power button and press Enter, then use the arrows and press again to choose Restart.
If you have any problems, you can also press Win + R to open the Run dialog box and enter shutdown / r to restart.
For most users, updating the mouse drivers to the latest and most compatible version will fix the problems. If not, you can try the following methods.

To adjust the double-click speed:
- Access the control panel.
