Mac mouse tracking not fast enough

Thanks for pointing that out Geo. I have updated the instructions to first read what the setting is before changing it. Thanks a lot Tyler, this is exactly what I need. I changed the speed for both trackpad and mouse. But I have problems to keep this setting. It works perfectly and then it just goes back to 3 again.. Great tip. It now works the way I want it. It was driving me nuts.

Good to see others had the same problem too. I just got a new IMac and I was considering returning it because I am unhappy with the font size in the email and the mouse speed. Is there any way to also increase the size of words and numbers on the Internet or make them the same size one every page? I tried adjusting the resolution and size but everything would look good on one page but lousy on another page. Everything will either spread out too much or look like parts of the numbers or letters are clumped up.

Will installing Windows have any effect?

It appears that if you open the mouse settings in system prefs or mess with MagicPrefs I recommend this tool if you use a Magic Mouse , the scaling reverts back to the default which is 3 in my instance. I just had to open the terminal window again and reset my scaling to my desired speed.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? One workaround is to not open either the mouse or MagicPrefs I guess. Thanks for the tip, Tyler. I am a new Mac user and this is something hard for me to adjust to.
