Best Starfield mouse and keyboard settings to change
Interestingly, most of the default controls in Starfield are good options for mouse and keyboard settings. The game is designed to be quite easy to pick up and play, especially if you've played previous Bethesda games like Elder Scrolls or Fallout.
However, you might want to consider changing your aim sensitivity and look sensitivity. If you set both your Aim Sensitivity V and Aim Sensitivity H settings to 100%, your aim and look sensitivity should match which will likely be a smoother experience.
Also, if you're using WASD to move your character, you might find it easier to change your menu button to Q. You'll be using the menu a lot in Starfield, so being able to more easily find the key for your inventory, fast travel and more will be quite helpful for many players. Many of Starfield's quests require you to constantly use your map to travel, so being able to quickly access is a pretty handy change.
You can also change your Flashlight/Scanner key to something else if you're not using your Flashlight or Scanner very much. These controls are usually on the F key, which can be rebound to something you're using more often if you prefer.
