Make your mouse easier to use in Windows 7 and Windows Vista

You can change the mouse pointer and turn on other features that can help make it easier to use your mouse on the Make the mouse easier to use page in the Ease of Access Center.

Open Ease of Access Center:

  • by pressing the Windows logo key Windows logo key + U.
  • or

  • Click on the Start button, then All Programs, then Accessories, then Ease of Access, then click on Ease of Aceess Center.

Click on Make the mouse easier to use.

Select the options that you want to use:

  • Change the color and size of mouse pointers.
    You can use these options to make the mouse pointer larger or change the color to make it easier to see.
  • Turn on Mouse Keys.
    If you have difficulty using a mouse, you can select this option to control the movement of the mouse pointer by using the numeric keypad.
  • Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    This option makes it easier to select and activate windows by allowing you to select a window by pointing at it with the mouse rather than by clicking it.

I see how to make the mouse easier to use and the option to Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse.  I don't want that option so I untick it.  Every time I reboot, it comes back.  Any way to turn it off permanently?

Are you clicking on the 'Apply' button on the bottom of the screen after you deselect the radio button? Are you logged in as an administrator? You may also want to look at the Folder Options in the Control Panel. Make sure that 'Single-click to open an item' is not selected.
