For everyday use, most users use the default mouse pointer speed. Changing your mouse pointer speed to be either more or less sensitive can be useful in certain situations. However, if after changing your mouse pointer speed, it is either too fast or too slow, the speed of the mouse can be simply reset in the Control Panel on Windows, or under System Preferences on Macintosh, by changing the mouse back to the default speed.
