A Quick Route to the Mouse
If you share your computer with another user, you should check this out. Any changes to the mouse settings is shared across user profiles. If you don't share a liking for the changes that your computer partner makes, it can create problems. In order to get your settings back, you have to open Control Panel, find the Mouse Control Panel applet, run it, and retore the settings you want.
There's an easier way. Run Windows Explorer and navigate to \Winnt\system32. Locate Main.cpl and use the right mouse button to drag its icon to the desktop. Release the mouse button and choose Create Shortcut(s) Here. All you have to do now is double-click your new shortcut to open the mouse panel.
