If I need to scroll, I just move my index finger onto the wheel and scroll, and then move it back to the right click. My ring finger and pinky just hang off of the right side of the mouse. I have been doing this my whole life. Lets call this Palm Grip 1 - No, thats the orginal plam grip, your co-work dont know what he is talking about.
Apparently the correct way to hold it is index finger on left click, middle finger on scroll wheel, and ring finger on right click, and pinky hangs off of the side. We will call this one Palm Grip 2 - Fingertip holding.
Which way do you hold your mouse? Which one is the proper way to hold the mouse for best performance for gaming or just browsing?
I have also to add that if the mouse have not comfortable right-side (Xai, Kinzu, Mx518, G400) so I put my middle and ring finger in the right click and the ring in the right side.Edited by avinin1 - 7/25/11 at 1:42am
