    Simple questions first.

    Have you turned the tracking speed up in System Preferences > Mouse?

    If you have already done that then take a look at MagicPreferences. This gives you the option to increase the speed further.

    one quick question ,

    before i installed magic prefs , i went to a forum and saw this command which i added to terminal to increase mouse speed.


    is there a way to undo this command back to defaults ?

    defaults write -g com.apple.scaling 5.0

    Im no terminal expert but would it not make sense to use this command?

    would this not effectively set it back to default?

    found this command on youtube , but honestly i dont think it does anything at all , but i did use 1.0 at the end of the command and nothing happened and no harm done , im using magicprefs which is helping with my magic mouse tracking.

    but im just wondering terminal code experts would tell me what that command does exactly ?
