In this paper, we describe a system for predicting icon selection from an icon bar based on command frequency and mouse trajectory. The development of this system was motivated by three findings established by previous research: (1) Selection from icon bars is the preferred method of issuing commands, (2) A user’s command choice can be predicted accurately based on knowledge of command frequencies and the most recent commands issued by the user, and (3) Mouse trajectories have been used successfully to predict the destination of the mouse cursor.
