OS X :: Mouse Sensitivity Settings Keep Resetting?

Aug 1, 2010

I use a Razer Deathadder and ever since I've started using it I've had to reset my sensitivity settings (via Apple -> System Preferences -> Mouse) after every system restart. I've read a bit about it online, some seem to think that deleting the Razer driver would work, but it hasn't for me. Any ideas on why the settings keep getting changed back to default?

MacBook Pro :: Resetting All Settings?

Sep 8, 2010

I had a MacBook for about a year now and a few weeks ago I started having problems with videos from online (ex. YouTube). They would start loading and stop, on and off. It would load about 2-3 seconds of video every few minutes. So I reset safari and everything, that didn't help. Anyway, I got a MacBook pro last week, and I transferred everything from my MacBook to the MacBook pro via ethernet cable. I am not experiencing this problem on the MacBook pro since the transfer. I reset safari again, no help. Have had friends use their computers on my wifi network, they all work fine. My speeds are over 10mbps. So my question, I don't want to erase all of my data, as I have no means to backup my iTunes library which is huge and all my documents and such. Is there a way to go back to factory settings though? Like should I reinstall the OS without erasing my data?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Keep Settings / Date And Time Resetting?

Sep 15, 2010

I have had my new MBP for about 2.5 weeks. On two different occasions, when I turn my computer on from being completely off the pop up appears saying my date and time are set improperly. The computer sets its self/ forget the date and time and goes back to 1/30/2000 at 6 am or so, when obviously its not Jan of 2000 and I'm not turning my computer on at 6 a.m. Anyway to make sure this doesn't happen? Has anyone else had this experience? I never once had this problem with my whitebook the 4 years I had it.

OS X :: USB Overdrive Settings Do You Use To Match A PC Mouse?

Oct 16, 2009

I'm a lifelong Mac user, but I use a PC at work and that means using Excel and Word a lot. Whenever I work from home on my Mac I always have a slight bit more difficulty in selecting the cells I want in Excel and I do attribute this in the slight differences between how the Mac mouse and PC mouse work.

I've used USB Overdrive for as long as I can remember but I only started thinking about what settings would give me the same mouse movement as a PC on my Mac. I am mainly interested in what Speed and Acceleration setting you have to best mimic a PC. I currently am using 400 dpi and 150% accel.

OS X Yosemite :: Mouse Settings Not Saved?

Nov 30, 2014

I just upgraded my 15" Retina Macbook Pro from Mavericks to Yosemite.  I had to reset the mouse settings so I went to System Preferences and made the changes for the tracking speed and scroll direction.  The changes happened immediately, however once I shut the computer down and turn it back on again, the settings are back to a default slow speed with reversed scroll direction.

Mar 10, 2009

I'm trying to get my wired mighty mouse working to my satisfaction but it wants to left click if I touch the mouse anywhere as far back as the apple logo.

Also how to I reset everything in the mouse settings, I've changed alot of things.

OS X Yosemite :: Losing Mouse Settings In New Account

Dec 8, 2014

Stayed with 10.6.8 for years and had no issues, then started to see problems with Safari, websites not loading, email problems, updates no longer available etc etc.  

So I used Carbon Copy Cloner to make a backup, wiped everything, then a clean install of Yosemite. All went very well indeed! 

I have 3 accounts setup on the one iMac (2011 model i7 Quad core). 2 of these accounts work perfectly, but the thing which is driving me nuts is on the 3rd account. I set the mouse tracking speed and remove the scroll direction tick, but whenever I log out, it resets itself! Every time I log in, I have to go to System Prefs and reset it all over again! 

The solution is to setup another account of course, and copy all files over, but I'd prefer to work through this issue to find out whats causing it if I can.

MacBook Air :: Unable To Access Keyboard And Mouse Settings

Nov 7, 2008

When I try to select this option in system preferences, my system just hangs indefinitely. I was considering getting the four finger gestures up and running, but I had only thought about it and did not actually start doing anything to the computer. Maybe they are reading my mind and punishing me? It has been like this for a couple of days through multiple reboots.

Software :: Terminal Command For Keyboard And Mouse Settings

Feb 5, 2008

Does anyone know the terminal command for toggling on/off the System Prefs for Keyboard & Mouse? I'd use it for an Automator workflow or Quickeys shortcut. The specific setting is "Use all F1, F2, etc keys as standard function keys." I and many other Cinema 4D users find ourselves needing to turn this on and off all day long, because the app uses that F8 key that the new Aluminum keyboards have coopted, but using it means losing our speaker volume / mute settings. This is in Tiger btw.

Dec 13, 2007

I seem to have a problem with my Mighty Mouse where, after a while, the functions I set to the 3rd and 4th button are reset in the System PreferencesKeyboard & Mouse tab. I would set the scroll wheel button to Expose - All Windows, and the Side Buttons to Expose - Desktop, but after a random amount of time (say 1hr) they revert back to Button 3/Button 4 respectively and do not work.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp 3.1 - Trackpad Sensitivity

Jan 25, 2010

Is the trackpad sensitivity still a problem for anyone else with a MacBook Pro? I'm using Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) on a 2008 Penryn non-UB, and downloaded/installed the new 3.1 update manually and the Trackpad is still incredibly sensitive with accidental clicks galore and "dragging". What options do you have under the Trackpad tab, on the Bootcamp 3.1 Control Panel? I have:

One Finger:
-Tap To Click

Two Fingers:
-Secondary Tap

MacBook Pro :: Can Adjust The Keyboard Backlight Sensitivity

Aug 23, 2009

Just got a new MBP 15" AG this week and was wondering if you can adjust the sensitivity of the keyboard backlight. It seems to come on even in a fairly well lit room and I mainly only need it in a completely dark room. So I find myself hitting the backlight keys to turn it off and then whenever it wakes from sleep goes back to full bright. Didn't find anything in the keyboard preferences and found a program called Lab Tick which will take care of the level on wake.

MacBook Pro :: Setting Keyboard Sensitivity - Lack Of Response

Nov 7, 2010

I had a look today at various models of the MBP, I must say I like everything about them except the keyboard, to touch type on it, it feels very cheap, very "lack of response". I am a fast touch typist, and I am used to bashing out 60+ wpm, however I found on all the models I tired, 13,15 and 17 the keyboard is all much of a much. I found typing fast that characters don't appear on the screen.

I assume somewhere in the options there are settings to change the keyboard sensitivity? That's really the only thing putting me off buying one, well apart from also deciding what screen size to get. Portability vs. Screen Size. I wish Apple offered an i7 version of the 13" MBP, that would make the choice easy.

MacBook Pro :: Liquid Indicators Sensitivity - Would Washing The Keyboard Do It

Software :: Losing Time And Date Settings / Wireless Settings Changing?

Aug 23, 2009

I have a G5 Duel 2GHz Power PC, Recently I was losing the time, date and wireless settings so I assumed as my machine is now 4 years old the PRAM battery was up for renewal.This has now been replaced but I'm still losing my settings, not all the time but randomly, sometimes I lose my wireless key sometimes I lose time and date sometimes both, this can happen daily.

I have removed the (New) Battery and checked the voltage and it reads 3.6 Volts, I haven't checked this under load though, so presuming that the battery is OK, what else could cause this.. a failing System Board?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Change Print Settings On A Mbp / Printer Settings OSX 10.5?

Jun 26, 2010

I have had my MacBook Pro now for a little over 2 yrs and I was very frustrated I could not change any print options in any application. I know that the Triangle button expands print options screen but when I do, I have only two print choices. It gave me Standard or Page Attributes in Office and any other App it is Standard and Last used settings. I can't print in Draft, Best or other setting because it does not even give them as a choice. I have two high end color photo printers, Canon i9900 and Epson Photo series and an old HP830 series. Any app I tried to print from and the same thing. I tried to capture the options on the choices but it would not grab that part of the image but here is my screen shot. I searched many forums and I still get the same answer so something else is not letting me change things so I figured best to ask since I am a 20 year win user now switched to Mac. Well right after I posted this question, my wife found the answer. I never though to check the application NAME in the print setting screen. Example, in the screenshot I am using Preview. I never thought to hit the up/down arrow next to the Preview label and wouldn't you know, that is were the quality and several other settings were. I felt pretty stupid that it took 2 years to figure this out but if I posted the answer maybe someone else will not have to take as long as I did to change their print quality!

Mac Pro :: PRAM Keeps Resetting By Itself?

Feb 28, 2010

recently had a small USB issue, so I reset my PRAM which fixed it.Now every time I boot the PRAM will reset itself. This particularly annoying because:1) It takes longer to boot as it restarts again and again (sometimes 3-4 times).2) I have the boot volume set to 0 and when the PRAM is reset it will go back to default which isn't fun [and it loud].

3) I have verbose mode on and a PRAM reset removes that as well, so I need to do the 2-finger combo [which on the bluetooth keyboard doesn't work half the time].I can't seem to fix it. I've done all the usual things (ie: manual PRAM reset with 4-finger combo, SMC reset, reseating hardware, disconnection hardware) and I've also gone ahead and installed OS X on a new volume for testing. Nothing is working and this getting a little frustrating.I try not to restart my computer, but recently I've needed to it a couple times. Apple Support doesn't know what to do and they're reluctant to send a on-site tech because they're not sure what the issue is. They want me to take my computer to the Apple Store, but (1) I don't have a car, (2) it's windy and snowing like crazy outside so there is no way I'm walking a mile to the Apple Store carrying the Mac Pro by hand, and (3) even if it was sunny outside my computer weighs a lot.Anyone know what's going on here? The computer passes all hardware tests and disk scans reveal no bad sectors.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcut Not Resetting

Oct 10, 2010

I set my fn key to display all windows (same as F3 default). I would like to remove this, but it doesn't show up on the system preferences shortcut list. Pressing "Restore Defaults" does nothing to alleviate the problem. Is there a way that I could reset all of my default shortcuts through terminal or something more powerful than system preferences?

OS X :: My System Preferences Keep Resetting?

Nov 13, 2008

Every time I restart my iMac, my desktop wallpaper reverts back to the default and my mouse configuration is reset so the buttons no longer do what I demand of them (Button4: Expose, I say!)

It seems to be just those two issues but it happens pretty much every time the system shuts down (although not every single time). Energy saving is fine. My dock is fine. Nothing else seems to be touched.

I've reset the PRAM. I've deleted the system preferences file from the library (com.apple.systempreferences...). I've repaired permissions.

I still have this problem.

Any ideas or solutions, aside from reinstalling OS X or not restarting my iMac ever?

I should mention that I'm running 10.5.5 on an Aluminum 2.0 Core 2 Duo Intel iMac. My system is all-natural. No fancy hacks or system modification programs installed here.
