How to increase mouse sensitivity in Skyrim?

How can i increase mouse sensitivity in Skyrim?

  • on the main menu the mouse cursor is sluggish
  • in-game mouse sensitivity is too low

Things i’ve tried:

  • Can I buy land if I didn't read the courier's letter?
  • What is the best way of leveling restoration?
  • Is “Overlord: Raising Hell” for the PC a standalone expansion?
  • Where can I find an item I can disenchant to learn Fortify Alchemy?
  • How can I use any game controller on my PC with Batman Arkham Origins?
  • How do I create Fortify Alchemy enchantments up to 29%?
    • increasing Look Sensitivity in-game:

    • In my SkyrimPrefs.ini file:

      • Increasing [Controls]\fMouseHeadingSensitivity from 0.0125 to 1.0500
      • Adding [Controls]\fMouseHeadingXScale = 1.0500
      • Adding [Controls]\fMouseHeadingYScale = 1.0500
      • Turning off mouse acceleration: Changing [Controls]\bMouseAcceleration from 1 to 0
      • Turning off v-sync: Adding [Display]\iPresentInterval = 0
    • Changing Detail in the launcher to Low from auto-detected Ultra

    • Running in Windowed mode

    • Turning off Steam’s Overlay UI:

    • Increasing my mouse pointer speed in Windows

    Note: My question is different from How can I sync vertical/horizontal mouse sensitivities?, which looks to make the poor mouse sensitivity equal in both directions. i want not poor mouse sensitivity.

    Note: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini"

    Note: And restarting Skyrim after each change.

    Note: Including details of what i’ve tried are only presented to shut people up who bitch about a “lack of research effort”. i should be able to ask my question with explanation, justification, or research. Also people love screenshots – it draws them in like moths.

    The suggested SkyrimPrefs.ini i was using was the wrong one.

    Using Process Monitor i was able to figure out that the correct one is:

    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini


    C:\Users\Ian\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini

    enter image description here

    Changing [Controls]\fMouseHeadingSensitivity to

    fMouseHeadingSensitivity=0.1250  (new)
    fMouseHeadingSensitivity=0.0125  (old)

    did the trick.
