Pointer Jumping

In most cases, you move the pointer by moving the mouse. However, in some cases, the pointer moves for you and jumps directly to a specific place on the screen. This is called pointer jumping.

For example, if you apply a change to the Workspace Properties window, a pop-up window appears with a warning that this will change a file that you may have manually customized. The pop-up window asks if you want to make these changes, and the pointer jumps to the Yes button. You must click SELECT on one of the choices in the pop-up window before you can do anything else on the desktop.
