Websites for Beginning Users

Are you new to using a mouse, or to using Windows? Here's a great website that can help you to develop and practice your skills.


Palm Beach County Library has an excellent tutorial on using a mouse and other basic skills. The topics covered include moving a mouse and clicking, radio buttons, check boxes, drop-down menus, scrolling, scroll-bar menus, pop-up windows, forms, copying and pasting text.

If you're at the library, you can ask a staff member to help get you started.

If you're outside the library or on your own, try this:

  • Look on the screen for the mouse pointer, a little arrow that moves when you move the mouse.
  • Move the mouse pointer over the word "Mousercise" until you see a hand.
  • Click the left mouse button one time.
