Simplify the use of the login dialog in Windows (7,Vista,XP)

A new mouse is acting strange on the PC: the pointer can hardly be tamed, and even with the slightest touch, it is moving too fast. The speed can be adjusted by changing the settings, but remains unchanged in the login dialog for all system users.

Adjust the mouse and make sure the settings apply to the computer’s
default user. With that, these settings will be available to all users even in the login
dialog. Open ‘Run’ in the start menu of Windows XP, enter ‘regedit’ and click
OK’. From Vista onwards, enter ‘regedit’ in the input field of the start menu
and press the [Enter] key. Confirm the question of user account control with
Yes’ or ‘Continue’. Then navigate to the key ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\
Mouse’ and Double-click on "Default" and change it's value to from '0' to '1'.

 If you want to change only one setting or swap the mouse keys for left-handers, you can also edit the string ‘SwapMouseButtons’ by double clicking in the key ‘HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Control Panel\Mouse' and setting the value to ‘1’. Then close the registry. From the next boot, the previously defined mouse configuration will be effective throughout the system.
