||Make the window as
big as possible. If you have multiple monitors, stretch the browser
window all across.
Start by moving the mouse cursor around and see how it helps you
keep track of the cursor. Wonder what is happening? Turn high-density mouse
on and off by adjusting opacity. Try out different settings. Wonder
when high-density cursor "kicks in"? Turn on the "make a sound"
debug feature to make high-density cursor audible.
Does high-density cursor help you acquire targets? Drag windows and buttons to
opposite positions on your screen. Now try to reach them all the way
across the screen as fast as possible. Try this with high density
cursor enabled and disabled.
Compare high-density cursor to the Windows mouse trail. Activate the
mouse trail in start->settings->control panel->mouse->third tab. Note that the
mouse trail does not make the trail any denser, but that it
introduces lag. Enjoy!
