Top computer mouse tricks

Top computer mouse tips everyone should know
Most computer users don't take full advantage of the computer Mouse. Below are computer mouse tips and secrets that help you get the full potential of yourcomputer mouse and increase your overall productivity while on the computer.

Shift key and mouse click
Many text editors and programs allow you to highlight all or portions of text using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, place the cursor at the beginningof a paragraph, hold down the Shift key and click at the end of the paragraph to highlight the full paragraph.
Take full advantage of the scroll wheel
Today, everyone is fully aware of a mouse wheels ability to scroll up and down on a page. However, this wheel can also do so much more, as shown below
If you right-click on any file or text and drag it while continuing to hold the right button, when you let go you willbe given the option to move or copy that file or text. This saves you the extra step of having to right-click where you want to paste the item.
While in a browser pressing and holding Ctrl while clicking onany link will open that link in a new tab .
Ctrl key and mouse click or highlight
While holding down the Ctrl key you can left-click to select multiple objects or highlight multiple sections of text. For example, in Microsoft Windows you could hold down the Ctrl keyand click to select multiple files at once. If you wanted to highlight different parts of a paragraph or web page, you could also hold down the Ctrl keyand select each section you wanted to copy.
Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the Ctrl key and individually click on each cell in a table they wish to copy or drag their mouse down a row to select just that row or text without selecting any of the other text in that table.
Use the Windows Snap To feature
Take full advantage of the Windows mouse Snap To feature, which will automaticallymove your mouse to buttons that appear in a dialog box. For example, if you delete a file or close a window you may get a prompt asking you if you are sure you want to perform the task. With the Snap To feature enabled, the mouse cursor automatically moves to the Ok button, so all you will have to dois click the mouse button if you agree. This saves you the time ofhaving to move the mouse cursor over to the Ok button andthen click Ok. To enable this feature open the Mouse properties under the Windows Control Panel and check the Snap To check box under the Pointer Options tab.
While changing this feature we also suggest looking at otheravailable options in the Mouse settings. For example, increasing the Motion speed can also help increase your productivity whileusing the mouse.
Customize your mouse
Finally, if you have a mouse withmore than two buttons, installing the included mouse software will allow you to customize the mouse even more.For example, if you don't use theside buttons to move back and forth in a web page change it to something you do more often, such as switching between openwindows or opening the calculator
