I am planning to use my old, corded Trackman Marble Wheel on my computer, which runs Windows 10 64 bit. The reason is I find it much more precise than my newer M570, which is, of course, very handy with its tiny USB-receiver. However, I am not sure it is even possible, so I would like to know if somebody knows, if that old tracball can run under Windows 10 64 bit, and if there is any software to support it. Logitech doesn't seem to have any, so unless some of the stuff that seems to be offered by others is safe to use, I don't think my plans are really feasible.
At present, my Trackman Marble Wheel actually does run on my computer, but it moves the cursor around quite slowly: About 7 times slower than my normal cursor speed! And since I haven't managed to find software support for it, I am unable to increase the cursor speed.Hope somone can help.

Im GUESSING ( there are a couple mice by Logitech that go by the name 'track man marble" ) you have.


As its the most "popular" older trackman/marble that people get. .. If my memory serves me correctly( ive used ALOT of Logitech mice in my time) it SHOULD work with the set point software from Logitech as well as "tweaking" the mouse settings within the software within Windows itself. It takes a bit of "fiddeling" but my suggestion is to try it with the most updated version of Setpoint software .. can't hurt to try :)

Meaning as far as setting the sensitivity and such for the mouse .

I have the m570 and for me it works great ( in windows 10 Oct update currently, but also in previous versions of Windows. ) after I used the Logitech Setpoint Software "in tandem" with the windows mouse to tweak settings to my liking.

Good Luck :)

I just plugged in my old Logitech Marble mouse in my Windows 10 pro 64bit and it works flawless. The only setting I had to do was to increase the pointer speed. this can be done in the mouse options of the Control panel. The "settings" option of Windows 10 won't gave you the chance to change the speed. Just open the control panel and click on "MOUSE".
