My simple secret to "being good with computer" is using a mouse. This 12 EUR device allows me to reach every pixel on my screen with unparalleled precision while most other folks fumble around with a touchpad that requires them to set interface scaling to 200% so they can with at least some chance hit screen areas roughly the size of Liechtenstein #protip

(the pain of having to work sometimes on my students laptops, all having different kind of trackpads where, thanks to Apple, you can't even be sure in which direction a swipe will scroll. My worst nightmare is having to drag & drop something on these instruments of torture)

@yhancik @despens The best way to point to a 35×35px square remains that beauty.

@raphael @despens ahha yes so it also happens to me that sometimes one of those students will have a touch screen, so i'll naively point at something on the screen and actually click on it :'D It's a curse.
