 By default, the hotkey used with window/​full-screen toggle and mouse grabbing toggle is the Control key (Control-Return and Control-F5).

 +**Changing scaling algorithm** (16 January 2019 and later builds)\\
 +Using integer and/or nearest-neighbour scaling may improve display quality (crispier, but more jagged) when a low resolution screen of the emulator is displayed full screen on a high resolution monitor. Integer and nearest-neighbour scaling can be applied by adding these lines to the preferences file:
 +  scale_integer true
 +  scale_nearest true
 +
 +**Changing reported CPU speed** (16 January 2019 and later builds)\\
 +SheepShaver identifies itself as a 100MHz machine to software running on it. Although the reported 100MHz is unrelated to the actual speed, some software may show a message that it will not run because it needs a faster machine. The reported CPU speed can be changed by adding a cpuclock item to the preferences file:
 +  cpuclock 200
 +This line wil make SheepShaver identify itself as a 200MHz machine. Note that this setting does not change the actual speed!
