Default How do you hold YOUR mouse?

How do you hold your mouse? This is actually very interesting to me.. I want to see how weird people are!

So I guess where are two ways:

- Rest the back of your palm on your mouse pad or desk and move it with your fingers
- Rest your whole hand on your mouse.

I rest the back of my palm on my mouse pad and move the mouse with my fingers...

Default Re: How do you hold YOUR mouse?

I hold it both ways.

Basically when my hand is father away from the mouse I use my fingers(If I'm reaching for the mouse, then its just the front part of the hand) then I rest my whole hand on it. I don't move my whole hand to just move the mouse, I just use a flick of the wrist. That or I move the mouse under my hand with my fingers(I have high sides on the mouse so I use my little finger and thumb to move it back and fourth.

I think using your fingers with your whole hand or most of the hand on the mouse pad extremely weird though. So to me, you people are weird.

I guess there are 3 ways because I don't use my fingers to move it when I rest on the pad. I use my wrist for side to side and fingers for up and down. I don't ever use whole hand though

None of the above.

I hold my mouse with my thumb on one side and my ring and little finger on the other and just the top most part of my palm resting on the mouse.

That's how I hold it, but I considered it just moving mouse with fingers as technically your hand (wrist) is resting on the mouse pad.

I love putting my palm on the mouse. Hate those really small mice where you only place two crumpled fingers on it.

^Yeah

I suppoe the way of holding mouse may say about the time you know computer. Less experienced people may move it with the whole hand... At least I have seen this method only by people who use computer morr rarely than me.

Default Re: How do you hold YOUR mouse?

well i never really noticed this before i guess i had to grip my mouse to find out hahah i rest my palm on the mouse pad, if i was to move it with my whole hand it'll be impossible to game because the amount of room i have to move my mouse is 4 1/2 inches lol (yeah just measured)

edit, actualy yeah i kinda rest my wrist more on the mouse pad i guess.. hmm weird

I have one of the microsoft trackballs (thumb ball) and it's big and doesn't not move on the desk so my whole hand rests on it. Neither option fit perfect so I picked the whole hand one.
