    Try this from Powershell:

    Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Control Panel\Mouse"

    And the following link may help.

    In any case you may need to do some calculations on your own as well.

    When I use powershell, which exactly is my dpi?

  3. To be honest (full disclosure) that is when it all seems to get messy.

    The values from the registry need to be "calculated" to get dpi.

    E.g. the following link leads into the matter:

    https://community.futuremark.com/forum/showthread.php?185644-adjust-mouse-sensitivity-via-registry-(regedit)-amp-EDPI-calculation

    Or this link:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/dpi-related-apis-and-registry-settings

    Overall, I have not been able to find a flat quantifiable answer per se.

    However, my thought is that the answer you seek/need can be determined with the applicable data (e.g. from Powershell) and the applicable calculations via the links.
