Scroll Wheels
Does your mouse feature a scroll wheel? Many models from various makers now have them. However, from casual observation, I've seen that many people don't use the scroll wheel to full advantage.

To do so, read the documentation or online help for your operating system and software application. Or, just experiment to see where you can use the scroll wheel to scroll pages up and down. Then, check the mouse settings on your operating system to adjust the scroll amount to the number of lines that make sense for your work. Scroll wheels can actually make you more productive if you use them as suggested.
