    mouse wobble, adjust click to drag?

    we're starting to use IWB here and I've noticed that teachers are stabbing at the boards quite hard. I discovered that this isn't their fault. (shock, horror)

    It seems that when you click on a button any excessive movement of the cursor will cause windows to try and drag instead of click. This is really only a problem on IWB beacuse everything is exaggerated. is there a setting to adjust the wobble click tolerance in windows?

    BTW is their a word for "wobble click" tolerance?

    Dont know if this helps...she said - idly googling whilst waiting for a computer to finish a download

    "To avoid accidental drag and drop, adjust the drag sensitivity so that it takes a greater effort to trigger a drag and drop operation. By default, the mouse needs to travel four pixels with the button held down for a drag operation to be initiated. To make it harder to initiate an accidental drag operation, just crank this number higher. "
