Adjust Mouse Pointer Options in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
Hi! You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to adjust mouse pointer options in Windows 8.
The first thing that we need to do is right-click the lower-left corner of the screen.
Then, we click "Control Panel".
When the "Control Panel" menu opens, we need to click "Hardware and Sound".
We click "Mouse" in the "Devices and Printers" section.
When the "Mouse Properties" window opens, we need to click the "Pointer Options" tab.
From the "Pointer Options" tab, we can select several options.
For example, we can move the slider in the "Motion" section and make the mouse pointer slower or faster.
We can also check or uncheck "Enhance pointer precision".
The next section is "Snap To" where we can check "Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box".
For example, the "Mouse Properties" window is a dialog box that has three buttons, which are "OK", "Cancel", and "Apply". If we check the option, the default button that will be selected will be "OK". So, if we open the "Mouse Properties" window, the mouse will be at "OK".
The next thing is "Visibility" where we can check "Display pointer trails".
If we check that, then there will be a visible point trail when we move our mouse cursor.
We can change the distance of the trails by dragging the slider to the left or right.
We can check "Hide pointer while typing".
If we start typing, the pointer will disappear.
The last thing is "Show location of pointer when I press the Ctrl key".
If we check this option and press the "Ctrl" key, at any time, then the location of the mouse pointer will be shown.
Once we have selected everything according to our preferences, we click "OK".
We can close the "Hardware and Sound" window now.
This concludes the tutorial on how to adjust mouse pointer options in Windows 8. Thank you for watching VisiHow! If you have any comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
