So I got the much hyped Magic Mouse. I get it set up then I go over to itunes and click a sound and normally I would then follow with a double click to get Itunes to play that song and now I do it and it does nothing. Same with Adium and any files I try to open but on firefox it works perfectly fine. I went over the settings 10 times and still can't figure it out.
My imac core i7 arrive (it's great). However, the question I have is that when I double click (left) my my magic mouse (yes I enable the right/left click buttons). So when I double click the mouse on a web browser on the empty space (the space to the right of the red/yellow/green button, nothing happens. I want to send it to the bottom of the dock like in all of my previous mac. The double clicking of the mouse does nothing. Note: please don't confuse my simple question with the System Pref/Doc (minimize windows into application icon) situation. I know how to do that. I just want to minimize the current windows by double left clicking and sending it into the dock? How do I do that?
My mouse cannot left-click on anything. Cannnot open a or close a document by left clicking. It will open or close via pull-down menus and right-clicking. It also cannot select anything or drag anything. I have used several mice, no change. It all works okay when I safe-boot (restart holding down the shift key) but after regular start-up, it doesn't work anymore. Is this a virus?
I have this really annoying issue where my mouse will randomly double click in OS X when i didn't actually double click my mouse. I had this problem before in Leopard (with different mouse) but now it seems the problem has returned with snow leopard. has anyone else had this problem? I checked the mouse properties and there's nothing strange there. I also don't have custom drivers installed. Just default snow leopard drivers.
You know something that has always bothered me is the loud and obnoxious clicking sound which happens whenever you click with a mouse. Unfortunately for me my new magic mouse is louder than previous mice I've used. When I use the mouse at school during class, or at the library the noise is very noticeable, annoying and distracting to others (and to me). I wonder if there is a way to setup the magic mouse to tap to click in the same way that touchpads work.
I've had a 27in i7 for a few weeks now and it's been working great. Just the other day, I set up a second user account on the machine for my wife. After messing with some of the preferences under the new profile, I realised that the mouse wouldn't "right-click" at all in that user account. I go into Preferences>Mouse and check the secondary click box, but this has no effect. When I close Preferences and open again, the box is un-checked. This problem is only in the new user account. My own, original administrator account has no such problem - right-click is working fine.
I have windows 7 installed on bootcamp on my 2010 imac. Bootcamp drivers installed. The magic mouse right click is not working properly in windows, but it works perfectly in osx. I usually need to right click twice, sometimes more to get it to right click.
Lately, My magic mouse would not accept a click to simulate <enter>.It moves about the screen on my MacBook Pro 15". It will accept a right click but nothing else.Often, i will have to close the cover of the MBP then re open to get back to normal mouse behavior.
My workflow entails repetitive tasks that would be so much easier if I could set Leopard's (Safari's) default double-click functionality to select ALL text within the Google search box instead of having to use a triple-click. Does anyone know how to make this change to Leopard/Safari?
It's basically like this: I can right click. However, if I try to right click within 2/3 from the right side, the shell button moves down, but it doesn't actually trigger the button underneath unless I press fairly hard after the top shell is already pressed down all the way. It probably sounds really nitpicky, but it's extremely irritating to keep on trying to press the button and not have it work.
It keeps on losing connection, like during the times I have to lift it up and then put it down, or when I stretched my arms a bit, covering not much distance with it away from the laptop. The battery, as I type this, is at 91%. I'm still using it, but a little this or that, or like when I bump my knee into the table, it goes off. This is the version I currently have:
I have two Magic Mouse(s) and both worked fine from day one - early last year, and both now act up constantly with the same symptoms. I am among those who believe it has something to do with Lion. When I boot up, they don't get recognized and when I go to Mouse and search for bluetooth devices - sometimes they are found and most of the time they are not. I can reboot and sometimes get the mouse but often do not.
I know about adding the paper to help cushion the batteries, hasn't helped. I have the Advanced setting to wake computer with mouse. I saw some reference to booting with a control option and deleting some setting but can't find out exactly what that is all about. Love using this mouse, especially swiping, and want to make it work.
Right now I have one of those huge "ergonomic" bricks in my palm and can't stand it!
buying one of these to replace my mouse.There's no store where i live so i can't go into the store and try both I'v never tried the apple trackpad on their laptops either.I used a lot of windows laptops before and what i can say.They were so bad that i always had a little mouse in my back I rly don't know what to expect for the apple track pad.Can it replace completely the mouse and is it comfortable to work with ? Or should i go with the mouse ?
I'm looking to get either a Magic Mouse or the Magic trackpad to use with my iMac. Do they both work with Windows? My wife uses Windows Vista on bootcamp for work. Also, I do play some games, nothing heavy duty.Any other thoughts or suggestions would be helpful, especially concerning the magic trackpad as my experience with it is approximately 10 minutes at my local Apple store.
For those who have purchased the new iMac or are thinking of purchasing, definitely go with a Magic Trackpad. The Magic Mouse is a little better for dragging and dropping, but the Trackpad is so much more enjoyable to use for everything elseApple should really figure out a way to make this a packaging option
I used to have a magic mouse connected to my mbp (mid 2008) it worked ok, until I updated to Lion.Same with the keyboard.Both appear to be connected ok via Bluetooth. The only functionality letf on the mouse is the scrolling up and down. The keayboard appears to be inoperable completly. What I did to cure the problem so far is:
- Reinstalling the OS (Lion) - no go
- Reinstall Leopard und run all updates, no go
- Zap the p-Ram and resetting the whole mbp.
- I checked the BT connection an setting and reinstalled the mouse a several times, no go.
Other Bluetooth devices work OK on the mbp.The mouse and the keyboard work with my Windows PC ?It looks not like a hardware issue, I just learned on the net, that there are more people with the same issue.Could a firmware issue be responsible for this?
I just purchased a Apple Wireless Keyboard for my MacBook Pro. And I was wondering if I should get a Magic Mouse or Magic trackpad. I love to use my computer from my tv while I sit on the couch and I like to use it from a distance from my tv. Please help by reply and tell me.
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.
