OS X :: How To Reset Wireless Mouse Preferences

Sep 24, 2010

I typically use a very basic Microsoft wireless mouse (this one), but recently I plugged in a wired Apple mouse (this one, I believe).

I then decided to go back to my Microsoft mouse and now all the buttons are messed up. Left and Right work fine but now the Wheel button opens my Dashboard and the left Side button sends me into All Windows mode.

I used to have both of them programmed to 1) open links I clicked on in new tabs and 2) select and open links in new tabs in Firefox with Snap Links Plus.

I'm assuming the Apple mouse switched some things around but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get back to my original settings. I check the preferences in Firefox, Snap Links Plus and on my system but I can't find anywhere to reprogram my mouse.

I don't remember how I originally did it but I think it just sort of programmed that way automatically.

MacBook :: Mouse Wheel Speed Unaffected By Mouse Preferences

Jun 11, 2009

I'm using a Logitech MX 518 mouse. It was working fine with the exception of the two side buttons; they weren't set up the way I liked and the mouse control panel did not let me change them. I installed some Logitech drivers (lcc213) that were supposed to support the mouse; upon reinstalling the mouse was not recognized by the Logitech software. The scroll wheel became very sluggish (maybe scrolling one line, and seemingly no acceleration). I removed the Logitech software and restarted, but now my mouse is stuck that way - moving the scroll speed in the Mouse preferences all the way to the left or all the way to the right makes no difference.

Is there any way to reset the mouse drivers or whatever might be messed up, short of a reinstall?

I even tried to use USB Overdrive and that likewise has no effect on the scroll speed.

MacBook Pro :: Mouse Pad Stopped Working But Wireless Mouse Works?

Jun 27, 2014

Every once in a while the mouse pad will stop working. A wireless mouse will work in its place.  The keyboard will also act extremely slow during this time.  It seems like the buffer is full and it moves on to the next letter i type without using the previously typed letter.

OS X :: Way To Reset Preferences And User Settings?

Feb 12, 2010

Running OS 10.6.2. A couple of days ago I noticed that my iCal was completely blank. Everything gone. Odd, but not a big problem - I just restored it from my iPhone. I just rebooted twenty minutes ago and my user profile has been completely reset - from the desktop settings to individual application settings. I haven't had any data loss as far as I can tell, but every single application setting has been reset - I've lost my bookmarks, startup settings, RSS subscriptions, everything that could possibly be customized within an application.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Preferences Reset Upon Restart

Apr 21, 2012

I am on my MacBook pro from 2010, reinstalling Snow Leopard and Lion afterwards. I install the updates and some programs (Plex, uTorrent, Chrome) only to realize that when I restart, some preferences completely ignored.. All programs added to the Dock are gone again, the assigned log-in items don't start up, iCloud was logged out again, mail settings were reset.I reinstalled the whole thing, except for Lion, and it all worked fine. So anyway, I thought it was the laptop. Some sort of hardware problem or something, right? So I just got this new Mac mini, with Lion, and it does the same exact thing.It doesn't remember some changes I made. I tried to repair permissions, but it doesn't do anything.

Intel Mac :: Wireless Mouse & Wireless Keyboard Flashing Green?

May 23, 2012

I have changed both sets of batteries. Turned them off and back on multiple times. Only reason I am able to ask this question is because I'm using my phone. I need my computer back. No I don't have a wired mouse or keyboard laying around. The mouse isn't registering or moving on the screen. The keyboard was working until I tried turning it off and back on. Now nothing is working.

IMac :: Magic Mouse Is A Wireless Mighty Mouse

Dec 14, 2009

My new Magic Mouse appears as a wireless Mighty Mouse on my iMac 10.6.2. When I open the mouse Preferences Panel, I get the options for the Mighty Mouse, not the Magic Mouse. It worked fine on my hackintosh with 10.5.8 but not with 10.6.2, so it seems the culprit might be in 10.6.2? It seems that USB Overdrive is the culprit for some, but I don't have it.

OS X Mavericks :: Can't Reset Advanced Mail Preferences

Jun 24, 2014

Using Mail 7.3. In response to the piling up emails on all devices I went into advanced setting under Mail preferences and set it to removed emails from the server. I immediately realized this wouldn't work bc now I can't get my email for that email account on my iPad. It goes to my desktop and then no other devices.  

When I go back to reset that so it doesn't delete from the server I get this message: Invalid Directory

The account path /Users/emma/Library/Mail/V2/POP-Info@movementsofthesoul.org@mail.movementsofthesoul.org is already being used by the account “cmos” 

It won't let me Save the change. Apparently it doesn't like that I have two email addresses (accounts) with that domain.

MacBook Pro :: Pictures Black No Smartphone, Preferences Reset

OS X :: App For Advanced Mouse Preferences?

Jun 22, 2009

I've been getting of my oversensitive Mighty Mouse.. the side buttons are way too easy to click so I find my windows constantly rearranging for Expose when I'm doing anything from dragging an icon to scrolling.

Is there an app that can change the preferences for mouse behaviors, such as needing to DOUBLE click the side buttons to activate its function?

Mac Pro :: SMC And PRAM Reset - Keyboard And Mouse Delay?

Feb 25, 2008

I tried the SMC & PRAM reset. Now, there is a delay in my keyboard and mouse. For example as I am writing this, as I type, I am observing a ~1/4 sec delay between me pressing a key and the GUI registering it. The same with the mouse. I can click-and-hold over say File and move it up and down over subsequent menu items and it the GUI doesn't highlight the menu item unless I slow down the movement.

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Button Settings Reset Often In Leopard?

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.

OS X :: Electric Shock Reset Clock / Wireless / Shut Off The Computer?

Jun 15, 2010

I don't know if this is something to be worried about but I notice that when the tip of the display port cord ( from the ACD ) touches the metal frame of my MacBook Pro there is a tiny blue arch of electricity visible. Well, I just bumped that cord into the frame of the MBP and as soon as that happened the computer completely shut off, it just went to a black screen and turned back on when I connected it via AC outlet. When the computer started back up the clock was messed up ( 2008 date ) and it had forgotten all of my WIFI passwords.

I was just wondering why this happens?

MacBook Pro :: Select Applications (Terminal / Preferences) Freeze On Mouse Hover

Aug 20, 2014

When I hover my mouse over an application (such as Terminal) it freezes with the message 'process Termainl [pid] caught causing excessive wakeups...' 

Some applications (such as Google Chrome) work fine. Others (iTerm, Terminal, Hipchat) are susceptible. If the application exhibits the behaviour - without fail, simply hovering the mouse over the application window, without clicking or giving it explicit focus, will cause it to freeze. 

Prior to this, my battery had swollen and the suspicion was that it was pressing against the trackpad resulting in a constant stream of interrupts. I took the battery out and am typing this without the battery - the issue persists. 

I also tried disconnecting the trackpad. Same issue, even when using an external mouse to navigate.

Hardware :: Looking For A Good Wireless Mouse

Sep 17, 2008

i'm planning on buying a macbook soon (upon the update, whenever and however it may come), and was thinking that i might want a mouse to use with it, in case the trackpad doesn't suit my wants or needs. i'm looking for a 5-button, wireless one, with a scroll wheel, and i really don't want to pay more than $30 or so for it.

what kind of mouse do you use if you dislike the trackpad on your mb/mbp?

Hardware :: Best Wireless Mouse With Arthritis?

Nov 27, 2009

At long last, I have my mother dipping into the modern world, the proud owner of a new MacBook. What didn't cross my mind until I began teaching her how to use a computer is that with arthritis, the drag-and-drop movement is tough...truthfully, it's next to impossible on a trackpad unless she uses one hand to click/hold and the other to drag.

I'd love to give her a wireless mouse for Christmas, alleviating the pain and awkwardness of drag-and-drop. Need to keep it simple since I doubt she ever becomes a hard core user.

Is the new magic mouse a good fit, or too sensitive/complex for a new user with limited flexibility? Or is it actually the perfect option? Is there a better option out there? Really need your collective wisdom here.....

OS X :: My Wireless Magic Mouse Won't Scroll

Apr 15, 2010

I just received a used magic mouse that I bought, and it paired alright in terms of whether the machine (macbook late '07, running 10.5.8) recognizes it and I click just fine (both primary-button and secondary-button), but I can't seem to get it to scroll, in any direction. Am I missing something or was this just somebody offloading their faulty mouse on me?
