Configuring Keyboards and Mice: Keyboard & Mouse

As with many of the Hardware system preferences, the sections available in the Keyboard & Mouse pane vary with your hardware. Nonetheless, this is the pane in which you specify settings for your keyboard and mouse and/or trackpad, as well as keyboard shortcuts. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, the Bluetooth subsection displays the keyboard and mouse names and battery life. Bluetooth devices are covered in more detail in the Bluetooth sections of this chapter.

Setting Keyboard Repeat and Delay

The Keyboard section of the Keyboard pane, shown in Figure 5.14, controls the key repeat rate and the amount of delay until repeat. You can test the rate and delay in a test space within the pane itself. If it takes your fingers some time to release the keys as you're typing, you might want to try some longer settings here. In this day of word processing rather than typing at the typewriter, these controls might not seem important. At the very least, we can reduce Mr. Kitty's typing speed.
