Snap To

I feel like I use my mouse too often and I was just wondering if there was an easy way I could cut back. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for all your help!

t’s possible and here’s how! You just have to enable the “snap to” feature for your mouse. Go to Start, Control Panel and click on the Printers and Other Hardware link. Choose the Mouse link and then click on the Pointer Options tab. The second choice there is Snap To. Checkmark that box and click OK.

So, from now on, your mouse pointer will automatically move to the default button in any dialogue box. Every time you’re doing something on your computer, the mouse pointer will take care of the finishing touches for you and you won’t have to worry about moving your hand back over to your mouse. This feature also helps to eliminate wrist injuries, such as carpal tunnel, because you don’t have to use your mouse quite so much. And let’s be honest, who can argue with that?!

Now, go on and snap to it, my friends!
