Chapter 19. Managing Hardware > Changing Mouse Settings

Changing Mouse Settings

When you use any computer, a mouse is an important part of the computing experience. Computers communicate with the user through a series of Graphical User Interfaces or a G.U.I. (pronounced Gooey). The user communicates with the computer through several devices, such as: a touch screen, a keyboard, a drawing tablet and a mouse. Using a mouse requires a bit of hand-to-eye coordination: You see something on the screen (a button perhaps), and you move the mouse pointer over the object and click. Apple understands the importance of the mouse, and gives you ways to control its movement and sensitivity through preferences located in System Preferences.

Change Mouse Settings

Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences.

Click the Keyboard & Mouse icon.

Click the Mouse tab.

Drag to adjust the following options:

  • Tracking Speed. Controls the speed of the mouse as you drag across your mouse pad.

  • Scrolling Speed. Controls the scrolling speed of the mouse.

  • Double-Click Speed. Controls the speed at which you must double-click your mouse.

Click the Close button.
