8.16. Mouse

It may surprise you that the cursor on the screen doesn't move five inches when you move the mouse five inches on the desk. Instead, the cursor moves farther when you move the mouse faster.

How much farther depends on how you set the first slider in the Mouse panel. The Fast setting is nice if you have an enormous monitor, since you don't need an equally large mouse pad to get from one corner to another. The Very Slow setting, on the other hand, forces you to pick up and put down the mouse frequently as you scoot across the screen. It offers no acceleration at all, but it can be great for highly detailed work like pixel-by-pixel editing in Photoshop. Experimentation is the key.
