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