OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Do A "middle Mouse Click" Without A 3 Button Mouse

Mar 8, 2012

#1:  Is there a keyboard command that will perform a middle click?  I have googled and googled and googled and found hardly any info except something about "option + click", which does not work. 

#2:  Is there a way to make the magic mouse perform a middle click?

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Not Working Fine / Middle Button Unable To Open Up Dashboard

Dec 19, 2008

I have had my mighty mouse for a couple months and it has worked great on my macbook. Just recently the middle button won't open up the dashboard and the two side buttons go through spaces instead of exposing all windows. In system proferences under mouse and spaces both are set for the middle button to open the dashboard and the side buttons to expose all windows but they don't do that. It could be an easy fix but I don't know what else to try?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Suddenly Cannot Click The Mouse (can't Select Anything)

Apr 2, 2012

For some reason I cannot click or double-click using any mouse device. I tried connecting a brand-new Apple Bluetooth mouse to my Mac desktop (new, running Lion 10.7) and it would not connect. So I took out my old USB apple mouse, and although it will move e cursor around the screen, it will not click anything. So I tried a Wacom Bamboo tablet and it won't click either. It will only do the equivalent of right-click, revealing menus and so forth. The Bamboo tablet is brand new but I can't go through the setup if I can't click anything. I tried restarting several times, and also restarting with Cmd-Option-P-R to reset the PRAM, and still nothing has changed.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mouse Click Not Working Properly On MacBook Pro

Mar 20, 2012

I just bought a macbook pro last week. Since using lion, I have noticed a problem clicking. Such as opening folders, minimizing windows, clicking the back space button etc. I click on a few folders and they open, and then I try to click on another one and it refuses to open no matter how many times I click on it unless I unselect it and try again. It is not consistent to specific folders/icons, it just happens at random.

It is as if the OS is not registering clicks consistently, like it were a hardware problem. Also my right click malfunctions at times and will either not work or will behave like it is the left click and vice versa and takes awhile to regulate itself. Keep in mind I use both a wireless usb mouse and my trackpad and this is a problem I experience with both of them. I am using the latest version (10.7.3)

IMac :: Magic Mouse Capable Of Middle Clicking?

Oct 21, 2009

I'm considering buying an iMac (Which would be my first Mac) soon, and I have a few questions I'd like to have answers to before buying one. I plan buying the new Quad Core 27" iMac, in case it matters when answering my questions.Is it possible/recommended to add non-Apple RAM to the iMac? Are there any disadvantages to this? What are they?Is the new Magic Mouse capable of middle clicking in any way?Is there a wired version of the Magic Mouse? I'm not a big fan on Wireless keyboards and mouses, as they run on batteries.I've read somewhere that to right click in Magic Mouse you have to raise your left click finger, is that true? It may seem like it is according to the video in Apple's website. (The demonstrator raises his finger before he right clicks.)

Hardware :: Unable Right Click/Left Click On Wireless Mighty Mouse After Disassembling

Aug 9, 2010

I had to dissassemble my wireless Mighty Mouse to clean it properly, as the trackball was unable to scroll up and down. As I had cleaned the trackball, I attached the two internal cables to their respective "slots" again and assembled the mouse.

Now my right button does the same as the left button (right click = left click). I tried dissassembling the mouse again, but I cannot see what I could have done wrong. After all, there are only two cables to attach and de-attach inside it.

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Not Working Fine / Right Click Acts As Left Click

Feb 12, 2007

I just bought a mighty mouse, happy as I was, plugged it in and started my ibook running OS X 10.3.9.I know the mighty mouse shouldn't have full functionality (as the software delivered with it is >10.4.2).The problem is that the right click doesn't work right. When I try to right click it sometimes takes the right click, sometimes takes it as a left click (which is extremely annoying in firefox or finder).

I have SteerMouse (I'm a windows/linux user too) installed but when I de�nstalled it the problem remained.
When I plugged the mighty mouse in my pc (at that time running windows) right click just worked.When using a cheap mouse (from pleomax) the right click on the ibook (with Steermouse installed) works all the time.

I find this al really confusing. Seems like it can't be the hardware because it works on windows, but it can't be the software because another mouse does work.

I noticed that when right clicking at the total right side near the "expose-button" (not a position my fingers lay naturally) right click works all the time. I don't hope this is normal?

OS X :: 10.5.7 - Mouse Moved To Appropriate Button

May 27, 2009

This is fantastic! Say if you have more than one tab open in safari and you press quit. You know that little box comes up "are you sure you want to quit?" I just discovered that wherever the mouse is on the screen it will move to the quit button, so you don't have to move the mouse to click it. I believe this is the case for other things, empty the trash etc. Its only safari. Have 2 tabs open. Hit command Q.

OS X :: Mouse Won't Click - Can't Respond

Oct 30, 2007

Yesterday I restarted my PowerMac G5 (dual 2.7Ghz) as normal. When it rebooted my system wouldn't respond to mouse clicks. I can move the pointer around the screen and the system even responds to mouseover events (e.g. the text when you move over an application in the Dock) but it won't respond to clicks. Funny thing is, I tried VNCing in from another computer on my LAN and clicking DOES work from there. I've taken the obvious step of repairing permissions, to no avail. I'm using 10.4.10 and wasn't doing aything unusual or stupid beforehand as far as I know.

OS X :: Both Mouse Buttons Are Right-click?

Nov 4, 2009

So I just installed USB Overdrive on my 10.6.1 iMac 2.66, and one of the buttons was conflicting; I thought it might be an issue with Apple's official mouse & keyboard prefs. So I went in, and I accidentally switched the right click/left click, and now I cannot click on ANYTHING because both buttons are right-click. I tried restarting in the hopes that USB Overdrive would override the system prefs, but no dice. Is there any way I can manipulate system prefs without the use of clicking?

I also tried hooking up another mouse to no avail, and sticky keys are off.

Software :: MBP Mouse Won't Click

Aug 21, 2010

(Was) running: 15" Macbook Pro, 3GB RAM, Original Leopard (Computer is about 4-4.5 years old, so it's not a new one. 2nd gen?) Last night I was using Firefox as I always do when my cursor decided not to let me move a file I was trying to move. The file sort of stuck to the cursor and I had to hard boot my computer back up. When I got to the login screen, I couldn't click my account with the trackpad mouse. I was however able to select my account with tab and enter (I think it was), which let me login. I was able to get to system preferences but there was nothing unchecked with trackpad that shouldn't have been. (Trackpad = mouse? I think?) Logged in, I was still unable to click anything, which makes it pretty hard to use the computer! I've tried various things to fix it, to no avail:

1. Hardbooting
2. Waiting all night, letting it sit off, hardbooting
3. Resetting PRAM

I also tried using my original gray installation disc for disk utility. I pressed "c" on startup, but once it started up, it ejected my disc. (Also tried the 2nd gray disc and the original Leopard disc.) I was able to reboot into Safe Mode pressing SHIFT on startup and then hard rebooting. Just read about single user mode fsck -y and will try that shortly. I'll also see if "D" on startup keeps the install disk in to run AHT. From what I've read, sounds like it might be the logic board. Can't afford that nor a new Mac. Looks like I'm back to a PC if that's what it is. *mourns* Wow, I plugged in an old Mac USB mouse we had lying around and that works! Yay! But should I still be concerned about the logic board or some other major issue?

OS X :: Mapping A Mouse Click To A Key On The Keyboard?

Dec 19, 2008

My roommate often hooks his Macbook to his HDTV. The problem he has it sometimes is hard to read text. He can zoom is while holding the Ctrl key and then scrolling up with the scroll ball on the might mouse.

What he'd like to do is be able to map the side button on the might mouse to the control key so he can just click that and then scroll up to zoom in (so there is no need to hold the physical key on the keyboard).

OS X :: Mighty Mouse Won't Right Or Left Click

May 10, 2009

i have a wireless mighty mouse for 9 months and today i had a serious problem. I had the casual problem with the trackball but i used to rub it on a clean peace of paper and it was fixed. When i done this today it won't right or left click. All it does is open the dashboard which this is the middle button. When i set off the middle button it can left click but not right. What the heck is going on? What should i do? Can it be fixed or do i need to go on an Apple Store and get a new one? God i hate this mouse. By rubbing it on a paper, the trackball is now scratched. Will this affect my warranty?

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Won't Click

Aug 22, 2009

Someone dropped our Mighty Mouse, and now it won't register clicks. When it hit the floor, it kinda fell apart. We put it back together, but now it won't click. We've tinkered around with it a little bit, and opened it up to see if there was something obviously broken... And everything looks like it should be working fine. At this point, it looks like we need a new Mighty Mouse, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on how we might be able to fix it. There were some other forum posts about the mouse not clicking right clicking, or scrolling, but I get the idea that it was just a hardware problem, where it just stops responding. Au contraire, it isn't working because it suffered blunt trauma.

*also, for other users whose mouse isn't working who are looking for answers, if your track ball isn't working very well, it might just need cleaning. Try turning it upside down and rubbing the mouse on your pant leg or a piece of paper, with moderate force. This will help dislodge debris inside, and help it scroll more easily, and doesn't harm your mouse. If you're having trouble right clicking, try lifting your index finger off the left side of the mouse. The mouse has a sensitive electrical wiring circuit under the area of where your fingers touch, and your mouse may be confused by fingers on both sides of the mouse. The primary click is the left click, so it'll take priority over the right side. Ah, Apple technology is beautiful.

Intel Mac :: Mouse Stuck In Right Click?

Jan 31, 2012

Almost from the beginning my Magic Mouse periodically got stuck in right click mode. I could usually get it out of it by opening preferences and unchecking the right click mode and then clicking a few times and then choosing it again. BUT in the last week it has happened more and more and the only way I've gotten it out of the mode is to restart. VERY annoying. The computer is just over 3 months old, actually 3 days over the 90 day telephone support period. I called and got the following advice: buy an extended coverage plan or take it to an authorized Apple store to see someone at the Genius Bar. Well, the closest Apple store to me is 120 miles and has no Genius bar and since this is an intermittent problem I don't see how they can do anything. What I am going to do right now is put it away and get out my Logitech wireless and hook it up and forgo the luxury of scrolling with my Magic Mouse..
