I'm assuming you're moving the whole mouse, and not just using something like a trackpad. Pick up your mouse, and turn it upside-down. If there's a ball, grab a can of compressed air, squirt it into the edges around the ball, and roll the ball around. If there's a piece of glass, there's supposed to be a red light, called a laser, coming out of that. If there is no light, you'll need to get your mouse replaced.

Acer Laptop Help


To get started with this product, complete the following steps.
Turn the laptop on by pressing the Power button located above the keyboard.
Locate the touchpad.
You use the touchpad much like you would use a mouse.
The touchpad controls your cursor.
It responds as you move your finger across its surface.
Move your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.


Locate the bar below the touchpad.
This bar may be used for selecting and has left and right-click functions that you can use a mouse.
Clicking on the right end of the bar has the same effect as right-clicking with a mouse.
Clicking on the left end of the bar has the same effect as left-clicking with a mouse.
Tapping the touchpad is the same as clicking the left end of the bar.

Use the keyboard like you would use a desktop keyboard.
The only difference is that the keyboard of an Acer laptop is smaller than a regular laptop keyboard.
Click on the Windows icon in the lower left side of the screen to access programs.
Make sure your wireless switch is turned on, if you want to access the Internet.
Then locate a wireless network.
Windows may automatically detect and display a list of available networks.
If that happens, you only have to select the network you wish to access.
If it is not your network, you may need a password if it is security-enabled.
If Windows does not automatically detect a network, open Internet Explorer, and follow the on-screen instructions to connect to a wireless network.

Logitech mouse right click too sensitive


Your computer mouse has preferences to make it easier to use. You can change the style and of the pointer, and you can change the sensitivity, which controls how easy or difficult it is to scroll across the screen. Speeding up the mouse sensitivity can allow you to move your cursor across the computer screen faster, while slowing it down can give you better control but you may have to move the mouse a greater distance to get your cursor to where you want it.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and type "mouse" into the Search field. Click on the "Change Mouse Settings" link in the search results. Click on the "Pointer Options" tab. Move the Motion slider bar to the right for a faster speed and to the left for a slower speed. Click "Apply" to apply the settings. Move your mouse to see if those are the settings you would like. If not, adjust the slider bar again. When you find the right setting for you, click "OK" to save the settings and close the window.

How to ouse the mouse?


The mouse is used by people to navigate around the operating system like Windows.

There are a number of buttons on the mouse, Left Click, Right Click, Scroll Wheel and Wheel Click.

Your index finger operates the Left Click and you middle finger operates the Right Click and Scroll Wheel.

The mouse, when moved in turn moves whats known as a cursor on the screen, it's that arrow.

Think of the cursor as your pointing finger.

Hope that helps!

G netbook cursor moves way too fast but i find no way to slow it down. apparently the solution is not in the help file.


The touchpad is very small on this netbook, so the ratio between the finger movement and cursor movement has to be high in order to be able to move the cursor from one side of the screen to the opposite.

The cursor cannot be too slow, because you would have to glide the finger several times on the touchpad to move it across the whole screen.

However, the speed of the cursor can be adjusted in the mouse properties in Control Panel (Start->Settings->Control Panel->Mouse) in the Pointer Options tab. Experiment with different settings to find one that suits you.

With such small touchpad I would suggest forming a habit of rocking the finger on the touchpad to achieve better precision and control, instead of sliding it. Put a finger on the touchpad center and tilt it left/right, up/down - You'll see that the cursor can be controlled quite well this way. And if you need a larger movement, then it's enough to move the finger the normal way.

Good luck and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

My pc desktop is moving left & right with cursor of mouse


It sounds like you have zoomed in on your screen image, so your screen is showing you only a portion of your desktop. In this situation, you move to a different region of the screen using the mouse cursor, as you describe.
You can zoom back out by holding down the CONTROL key while rolling your mouse's scroll wheel (or scrolling with two fingers on the surface of an Apple Magic Mouse).
