Question from Rhonda: It seems the “mouse click” on my computer needs to be adjusted. It seems too slow or something.
I seem to remember long ago someone telling me this could be done. Is this possible? Thanks, Rhonda
Rick’s answer: It sure is, Rhonda. And like you, I don’t really carry a slothful mouse!
You didn’t mention which version of Windows you’re running so just skip down to the instructions that apply to your PC:
1 – Click the Start Orb.
2 – Click Control Panel.
3 – Click Hardware and Sound.
4 – Click Mouse.
5 – Adjust the Double-Click Speed by moving the slider.
6 – Click Pointer Options.
7 – Adjust the Pointer Speed by moving the slider.
8 – Click Ok.
1 – Press the Windows + Q key combination (i.e. press the Windows key and the Q key simultaneously) to bring up the Search Bar. You’ll find the Windows key on the lower-left corner of the keyboard between between the Ctrl and Alt keys.
2- Type Mouse Settings into the search box.
3 – Adjust the Double-Click Speed by moving the slider.
4 – Click Pointer Options.
5 – Adjust the Pointer Speed by moving the slider.
6 – Click Ok.
1 – Press the Windows+S key combination to open a Search box.
2 – Type mouse speed into the Search box, then click Change the mouse pointer display or speed. The Mouse Properties dialog box will open.
3 – Select the Pointer Options tab.
4 – Select a new pointer speed by moving the slider.
5 – Click Apply, then click OK.
That’s all there is to adjusting the speed of your mouse pointer. Pretty easy, right?
I hope this helps. Good luck, Rhonda!
