What’s worse is that it’s not an app-specific problem; Windows 11 users have been experiencing mouse lagging problems everywhere. If you’re also facing the same problem, follow our shared troubleshooting methods.

1. Fix the Mouse Lagging Problem by Restart your Windows 11 PC

If you’ve just updated your Windows 11 version and experiencing mouse lag, it’s time to restart your computer.

Restarting may terminate all conflicting apps and services. It will also remove the bugs and glitches that may be triggering the mouse problem.

So, click the Windows 11 Start button and select the Power Menu. On the Power Menu, select Restart.

2. Reconnect the Mouse

If restarting Windows 11 didn’t help, you need to reconnect the mouse. This is a basic fix, but it’s very effective.

To turn off the Bluetooth mouse, you need to turn off the Bluetooth connectivity on your device. If you have a wired mouse, unplug it from the USB Power and reconnect it.
