In Windows 98, you can change the speed of your mouse or pointer to suit your working style. When you have the need to precisely position a graphic or other object into your working document, your normal mouse response rate can be just a little too fast for your liking. You can slow down the mouse speed if you'd like.
To change your mouse speed:
1 - Click the Start button
2 - Select the Setting Menu
3 - Select Control Panel.
4 - Double-click the Mouse icon
5 - In the Mouse Properties window, click the Motion tab
6 - Click and drag the Pointer Speed slider bar to adjust the mouse speed to your liking.
