Welcome to a new series of ReviverSoft fast tips. Each of these tips is dedicated to optimizing your PC experience.

Our first one’s on changing the speed of the mouse cursor. Some like the mouse speed to move a great distance with a tiny push of the mouse; others like a lot of drag so they have to move the mouse clear across the mouse pad to get the cursor across the screen. It’s all about personal preference.

Here’s how to adjust your mouse speed in Windows 7.

Click Start, then Control Panel. View by Large Icons, then click Mouse to open Mouse Properties. Click the Pointer Options tab. Slide the arrow toward Slow or Fast to adjust to the speed you’re comfortable with, then click Apply or OK to lock in your changes.
