Trackball Tip


Oct 26, 2006, 8:41 PM
In the article it mentioned that the trackball was difficult to use and sometimes unreliable. There is a sensitivity setting under options>Keyboard settings which out of the box is set to 70, which is too high. Adjusting it to a range of 30 to 50 makes the ball much easier to use. Ever since doing so I have never had a problem. Smile

that's good advice. i had to adjust my vertical senstivtity down and my horizontal UP believe it or not. but i still found everything hard to control even after adjusting the sensitivity.

Great advice/change change. The trackball is awesome best nav I have seen/used on the many devices I have encountered. I am now a one handed bandit with great ease and accuracy.

Long story short the trackball is way better then the old side wheel!

I agree, the joints in my thumb no longer ache after prolonged use.
