Many Windows 11 users have complained about mouse lag issues. Interestingly enough, this issue occurs more frequently when using Wi-Fi intensively. For example, if you’re streaming video content or downloading games, your Bluetooth mouse may start lagging all of a sudden. Follow the troubleshooting steps below to solve the problem.
How Do I Fix Bluetooth Mouse Lag on Windows 11?
Run the Bluetooth Troubleshooter
Use Windows 11’s built-in Bluetooth troubleshooter to detect and fix mouse lag issues. Navigate to Settings, go to System, and select Troubleshoot. Then, click on Other troubleshooters, and run the Bluetooth troubleshooter.
Remove your mouse’s battery, wait for 30 seconds, insert a new battery, and check if you notice any improvements.
Update Your Bluetooth Drivers
- Launch the Device Manager.
- Expand the list of Bluetooth devices and drivers.
- Right-click on your Bluetooth driver.
- Select Update driver.
- Then, right-click on your Bluetooth mouse driver.
- Select Update driver to install the latest driver version.
If you’re still experiencing the same problem, reinstall your mouse driver. Launch the Device Manager again, right-click on your Bluetooth mouse driver, and select Uninstall device.
Speaking of updates, go to Settings, select Windows Update, and check for updates. Install the latest OS updates, restart your computer, and check if the issue persists.
Reinstall the GHUB App
If you’re using a Logitech mouse, reinstall the GHUB app. As a quick reminder, this is an advanced gaming app that lets you fully customize your mouse, and enable many interesting features such as color breaks and animations. Many users confirmed that uninstalling and reinstalling the GHUB app solved their issue.
Prevent the System from Disabling Bluetooth
Tweak your Registry Editor to stop the system from disabling Bluetooth connections.
- Click on the Search icon and type Registry Editor.
- Double-click on the Registry Editor to launch the app.
- Navigate to
- Important note: The folder after VID_8087&PID_0026 may sometimes have different numbers and letters depending on your hardware. On some computers, you need to look for the VID_8087&PID_0AAA folder.
- Then, add the following entries:
- Save the changes, restart your computer, and check the results.
If the first key is already there, simply change its value from 1 to zero. If the second entry is present as well, it should already have zero in the Value field. Sometimes, the third entry (SelectiveSuspendSupported) is missing, which means you need to create it.
To do that, right-click on an empty area in the right-hand pane, and select New → DWORD 32-bit Value. Name the new entry SelectiveSuspendSupported. After that, double-click on the newly-created entry and add zero in the Value field.
To sum up, if your Bluetooth mouse is lagging, run the Bluetooth troubleshooter, and update your Bluetooth drivers. Additionally, tweak your Registry to prevent your computer from disabling Bluetooth connections. If you’re using a Logitech mouse, reinstall the GHUB app.
