How to change mouse settings on Chrome OS such as tracking speed and Australian scrolling

This article was originally written to explain how to increase the mouse tracking speed on Chrome OS devices (Chromebook and Chromebook Pixel) but as I was writing it I discovered two other issues that I’m sure others have experienced.

 

The Problem

After connecting my Apple Magic Mouse to my Chromebook Pixel via Bluetooth I noticed that the tracking speed was rather slow. I navigated to the lower right hand side of my screen, clicked on my account photo and selected Settings. Then I navigated to “Touchpad and Mouse Settings” where I expected to see a tracking option, but none existed!

 

The Solution

Directly above the “Touchpad and Mouse Settings” option is the setting! I simply overlooked it.

 

The New Problem

Unfortunately, I quickly discovered two other issues though. The tracking speed option really isn’t as fast as I’d like, and Australian scrolling doesn’t work on the Apple Magic Mouse!

If I identify a solution or an update comes out I’ll update this post.

 

The New Solution

Sadly, I haven’t found one. This is something that will require development to the core Chrome OS. I suspect others have submitted this as a feature or bug report though.
