Ever had problems with mouse accuracy because of mouse motion speed. Used to have that in the days before optical mice and other pointing devices. I think I do encounter problems when handling click-accuracy reliant tasks like graphics and illustration (Probably why I’m buying a pen tab in the near future).
While you can slow down your mouse speed via Windows’ Mouse options in Control Panel, it may be great if you can slow down the speed on the fly via keyboard hotkeys. Slowmousion is a free app that resides in your systems memory that allows you to control mouse motion speed via hotkeys. The hotkeys are then configurable from a set of options.
I can’t say that this would be the end-all-and-be-all for mouse speed control since it only slows down the mouse motion speed and doesn’t give you complete control over mouse speed. For Vista users, it’s even quicker to just type mouse in the Start Search bar to quickly gain access to the Mouse options.
Anyway, if you want to toy around with your mouse speed, then you can download Slowmousion here. Works with Windows from 2000 to Vista.
