  1. one question that comes to mind today is how do i get my cursor to settle down just a little when for example i need to select specific characters or words for cut paste. the thing keeps running off at the pointer so to say. are there settings for that!

    Go to start, run, type in main.cpl and press enter.

    That will give you the mouse properties, where you can tweak settings to find what works best for you.

    If nothing else works, you may need a more accurate mouse.

    Regards :)

    mouse functions

    my microsoft ps/2 mouse isn't working right. when i select for cut and paste (while editing type) the selected part unselects before i can copy or cut. selection is very hard to control. i can't select the part i want. maybe there are some settings that need to be set up better. auto complete? i don't recall where to look. mouse properties isn't doing it at all so far. thanks...
