Today’s tip is small, but it’s something I see people struggle with all the time. If you find the cursor moves very slowly or you never seem to have enough trackpad or desk space to move it across the screen… this tips for you. First… you’re not crazy or stupid. Your mouse and trackpad was set this way in the factory. Only Apple knows why. It’s simple to change:
- Open System Preferences
- Choose Mouse or Trackpad – Your choice may differ slightly based on your version of OSX
- Adjust the Tracking Speed. It’s probably set at a low or mid-way. It’s okay to make it pretty fast.
- Once you’re happy with the tracking, you can close System Preferences. You’re done.
