Tips for using a Mouse.

BluesWalkBluesWalk Posts: 47
One handy thing I do when using a mouse is to increase the mouse sensitivity via 'control panel> mouse> pointer options'. It may seem very fast at first but if you stick with it, you will get used to it.

Benifits: You move your hand less, up to 50% less infact so its really good. :)

    Yeah there are many ergonomic mice to buy for sure, I personally use the Logitech G500. It has changeable weights inside for balance and has everything I need for gaming. It actually has a sensitivity button on the mouse you can change the speed but generally from control panel works just the same.

    Like I said, it may seem a bit much but trust me, when you get used to it, it's amazing! I hardly move my hand at all! :)

    I've found remembering short cuts to be of great assistance -- the basic ones are the same with all programmes.
