BlueStacks 4 - How to change mouse sensitivity

How will this help?

You now have the ability to change mouse speed along the Y-axis for vertical movement and along the X-axis for horizontal movement on BlueStacks. This detailed guide will tell you all about how to do it with ease on BlueStacks 4.250 and above. 

Increasing/decreasing the mouse sensitivity will respectively increase/decrease the speed at which the camera will move when you move your cursor vertically. This comes in handy especially in shooting games, such as Free Fire and Call of Duty: Mobile.


Steps to change it on BlueStacks

There are three ways to change mouse sensitivity while playing on BlueStacks:
