Much of Windows 98 was made with the mouse in mind, so it's important that you're comfortable handling the little rodent. To help out, Windows 98 offers the Mouse Properties dialog box, shown in Figure 8.1. (If you have IntelliPoint software installed, your dialog box will have a different layout. See “Extra IntelliPoint Goodies,” later in this chapter.) To display this dialog box, select Start | Settings | Control Panel and then activate the Mouse icon from the Control Panel folder. As usual, you can put your new settings into effect at any time by clicking the Apply button. When you're done, click OK to vacate the dialog box.
