Mouse map files control the way your mouse works in a terminal session. When you create a terminal session document, it includes a pointer to a default, built-in mouse map file. You can choose a different mouse map file for each session, and you can create custom mouse map files with the settings you prefer.


Hotspots provide additional ways for you to use your mouse to interact with a terminal session.
