Once the driver and software are installed, there should be a green “E” in the task bar. Clicking on it will open the Evoluent Mouse Manager software. Notice that any new tab in the mouse configuration utility related to the Vertical Mouse now has a green “E” beside it. In the first tab of the view pane it is possible to configure each of the five buttons on the Vertical Mouse. There are a whole host of possible selections and combinations to choose from, which is very nice to see.
In the next tab you can choose the pointer that you like, which is the same as the original Windows mouse configuration utility.
The tab next to the “Pointers” tab is the “Pointer Speed” tab. Here there are a few more options to choose from. The original main pointer speed slider is available and below that is the configuration of hotkeys to activate different pointer speeds on-the-fly. This is very useful to quickly change pointer speed for different tasks. This can be especially useful when switching between programs where you may need more accuracy and a slower mouse speed. Three different pointer speeds can be configured and assigned to separate hotkeys.
Next is the “Wheel” tab. This is where number of lines to scroll and other options can be found. Also, this mouse supports a feature known as “Accelerated Scrolling”, which allows more lines to be scrolled when quickly moving the wheel.
