More steps per revolution = smaller single step. You can even use microstepping.
Yes it is. Or you can use in-built pull-up resistors inside Arduino and modify the code. By the way, please use the "Reply" button so we won't start a new conversation every time.
Both of them to the ground through a pull-down resistor. To switch on, apply 5V.Even easier way would be to initialize those pins as INPUT_PULLUP and then just short them to ground as you switch the toggle.

The problem is pretty self-explanatory. You are missing the AccelStepper/MultiStepper.h library.By the way, when you download a library, make sure to put in the the right folder structure, Documents\Arduino\libraries\xxx, where xxx will be the name of the library, and it will directly contain all the necessary files. It is always better to use the libraries folder located in Documents, in case of you will reinstall or update your Arduino IDE. You can always delete the .github folder to remove the warnings.
It can be caused by many things. Try to post here the full error log.
Yes. As far as I know, motor shield v2 is compatible with Arduino Mega. Basically, it should not be a problem with anything, as far as it is capable of controlling stepper motors and providing modulated output signal for laser blanking. Of course in that case, only the concept of this project should be used, not the exact same code.
Try to right-click it, go to properties, and if there is an option called "Unblock", then check it and click apply.
I'll be glad to help within Tech

No, it's for the V2.
I am really sorry but I don't have time to review and rewrite the whole code now. I think it will be much easier also for you if you buy Motorshield V2. It doesn't even have to be the original one. On aliexpres.com you can buy a cheap and working one around $6. I hope that helps you :)
Feel free to use V1 library and rewrite the code :)
Try to download the last version of LaserControl from GitHub.
Make sure you have .NET framework 4.5.2 installed on your computer.
Are you sure it is not blocked by something? (antivirus, windows protection,...) What kind of error do you get?
Thank you! It's just 50mW.
