    Have spent many years with pcs, I can't get used to the speed of the cursor in the programs I use - web forms, emails, Pages etc.

    I don't mean the blink rate - I know how to change that. I mean the speed at which I can scan across lines of text.

    The cursor seems slower than my xp machines. What setting might I have missed? I don't recall being able to change the rate of movement across the lines in an xp machine.

    Do you mean like... being on a line of text and using the arrow key to move the cursor along the line?

    Just the job, redwarrior, just the job, thanks. As you might expect, I had been into the mouse utilities, but I hadn't grasped the meaning of the right hand mouse properties function.

    Until now.

    Thank you, now happy zipping along lines of text.

    you can also hold down the command button to jump from start/finish or the alt button to jump entire words.
