Mouse Control Panel

Shown below is the Mouse Control Panel. It has little buttons, called "radio buttons," labeled "Slow" to "Fast." If you click the "Fast" button, it doesn't mean the mouse actually moves any faster—it means you don't have to move the mouse so far across the mouse pad to make the pointer travel across the screen.

Try it: Click the "Slow" button (with the tip of the pointer) and see how far you have to move your hand and the mouse to make the pointer move across the screen. Then click the "Fast" button and see how the pointer moves. I set my tracking speed on "Fast," but many designers and illustrators like to set their speed to "Slow" so they have more control in the painting programs, moving the mouse dot by dot.
