Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change mouse pointer options on Windows 7.
Open the start menu by clicking the Windows logo located on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
Click on Control Panel to access it.
Click on Hardware and Sound.
From this menu, click on "Mouse" located under "Devices and Printers."
Click on the pointer options tab.
From here, you can change the speed of the mouse depending on your preference.
Adjust the slider until you reach your desired speed.
You also have the option for the pointer to automatically move to the default button in a dialogue box.
For example, once you open the mouse pointer options, your mouse will hover over the OK button.
There is also an option to enable pointer trails.
This will show extended mouse movements, leaving a trail behind your pointer's movement.
Another option is to hide the pointer while typing so it does not become a distraction.
Lastly, there is an option to show the location of the pointer when you press the control key.
Just in case you have a hard time finding your pointer.
Once you are finished changing the pointer options, click OK to confirm your changes.
This concludes our tutorial.
