I like the new Magic mouse but I am short on up and down (back & forth) space and wanted to see of there is a way to get the mouse pointer to move faster up and down or to get it to jump down to the lower screen (extra screen is below iMac) with a short cut maybe?

The first task seems do-able, but the second... wouldn't it just be easier to move the mouse than to use a shortcut? hehe

There might be tools that will let you manually change the mouse acceleration on the webs.

Too many devices to list
System Preferences > Mouse > Tracking Speed. That will control the speed at which your cursor moves.

The speed is already set at the max for tracking. I can get the pointer to move from about 1/3 of the screen distance from the top of the screen down at fastest speed as I only have about 1-1/2" of space on my mouse pad due to a built in wrist pad. So then I have to lift the mouse up and move it on the pad to get more real-estate to move the pointer again. With the nice scrolling you get it is not hard to get to webpage locations to click on, but it would be nice if I could jump down to the lower screen and then back up with the mouse pointer for when I am using both area's, like when I have itunes below and email up top.. etc....
