How To Use The Mouse

Posted by admin on Aug 10, 2010 in How to Use Mouse

First of all – relax, it’s not as hard as you think it is  :-)

how to hold mouse

Holding your mouse

Rest your wrist on the desk.

Put your hand on your mouse like you see in this picture. Put your thumb on one side and your little finger on the other.

If you are left-handed, hold your mouse like you see in the insert picture.

moving mouse

Moving your mouse

Hold your mouse.  Don’t lift it up, leave it on the desk.

Try to move it left, right, forward and back.

When you move your mouse around, you will see the pointer arrow moves on the screen of your computer.

Click and Double Click

To select the item on the computer screen, you must gently press the left (or right if you are left-handed) button on the top of your mouse.

This is called clicking.

To single click gently press down and then release the left (if you are right-handed) or right (if you are left-handed) mouse button.

To double click quickly press the button twice in a row. Try to keep your finger resting on the button, do not take the finger off while double clicking (it is easier to double click if you leave your finger on the button and just press down twice).

Drag and Drop

To drag an object on the screen,  press the mouse button down, and keep it down. Then move the mouse while continue pressing the button.

In some programs you can drag and drop items. To do that you first click on the object you want to drag, hold the mouse button down and drag the object to the desired location. When at the location you release the mouse button.
