  • Both Mac OS 9 and Windows versions also have the following options:
    • QuickPoint: Jumps the cursor to the default button (such as OK, or Save) in a dialog box to save time.
    • ScreenWrap, to wrap the cursor around the screen; then it goes off one edge and will appear at the opposite edge. 
  • Windows features:
    • ButtonMouse, to move the cursor, perform left/right clicks, double clicks, and drags, all with 2 switches (buttons) only.
    • KeyMouse, to completely control mouse movement and button functions from the numeric keypad or IntelliKeys.
    • Automatically increases the size of window-sizing, double-headed arrows.
    • ClickLock, to lock down left or right button if held down long enough (may not work with all software).
