OS X :: When Scroll Down (using The Mouse) Just A Little Bit At A Time, The Screen Will Jump UP?

Oct 26, 2010

Running 10.6.4.

Occasionally, when I scroll down (using the mouse) just a little bit at a time, the screen will jump UP, before scrolling down. This happens quite frequently, but not consistently. It's incredibly annoying.

I thought it was the mouse, so I replaced it with a new one (used to have a Microsoft "Comfort Mouse," now I've got the Mighty Mouse), and it's still happening. My guess is it's some kind of software issue.

Hardware :: Mousepad Recommendations - Jump Around A Little Bit?

Aug 25, 2009

I just bought an iMac with a wireless Mighty Mouse. I'm using it on an old table right now (until I move into a new place). It's an older table and there is some loss of luster when I'm using the mouse at causing it to jump around a little bit. I'm looking for a mousepad that'll look good and perform well. I'm thinking, if it's out there, an aluminum mousepad would be pretty cool to match the iMac.

OS X :: How To Change Mouse Scroll Wheel Lines On USB Mouse?

Dec 16, 2009

I recently plugged my Belkin USB mouse into my Black MacBook. All works OK, except that I cannot change the number of lines jumped when I use the scroll wheel.

The "Scrolling Speed" setting in System Preferences > Mouse doesn't do anything.

Any ideas? Is there a config file I can change via Terminal?

MacBook Pro :: Why Does Screen Go Black Every Time Move Mouse To The Lower-left Hand Corner Of The Screen

May 5, 2012

I've had my mac for about three years now and everything was working fine. After I installed lion, I notice that this started to happen. I don't lose any of my information though when it does that. It just goes into a sleep mode I guess? Anyways, is this a feature from the lion update? Something standard?

Hardware :: Sometimes Mighty Mouse Allows To Scroll Up Or Down?

Sep 24, 2008

Sometimes my Mighty Mouse allows me to scroll up or down, and at other times it only allows me to scroll up. This seems to be a hit and miss situation, and I have not been able to identify any activity that causes it to malfunction. Perhaps some others out there know what's going on, and how to set it straight.

OS X :: Why Mouse Scroll Ball So Intermittent

Jul 13, 2009

I love the mouse (is it the mighty mouse?) which comes with the imac. The little scroll ball is brilliant especially for say scrolling down in itunes. But I always find that sometimes it won't work in a variety of different ways. i.e.

1) Sometimes it will let me scroll down but not up
2) sometimes up but not down
3) sometimes not up or down
4) occasionally it works both up and down.

As I type this I can go down but not down. I've had this problem on both our older IMac and now our new one. It can't be dust and muck and the ball does rotate. Why can't the ball just work all the time.

Hardware :: Does Mighty Mouse Scroll Diagonally

Jul 11, 2009

It either interprets "diagonal" scrolling as horizontal or vertical, or left and right. There is no horizontal and vertical at the same time. I don't recall my previous MM being able to scroll diagonally, either.

I'm not sure what Apple means by "360 degree scolling."

Desktops :: Mouse Is Getting Dirty And Failing To Scroll

Nov 25, 2009

I bought my iMac about 2 1/2 years ago. The mouse I got with it (mighty mouse? $50) has constant problems re getting dirty & failing to scroll properly. As I have discovered on Apple's own site, this problem is not rare. For a while I could turn it upside down & just play with the scroll button till whatever was stymieing it resolved itself. But now it won't scroll down at all (other directions OK). Based on the Apple reviews I am reluctant to replace it with the same model. Is the Magic Mouse ($70) a better value? What are the advantages? Or would I better better off getting a cheaper non-Apple mouse? I'm not into having to do a lot of regular maintenance or popping the mouse open to clean it. I also think a $50 or $70 mouse should not be "disposable".

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Only Can Scroll Left

Apr 14, 2009

I bought a new wireless mighty mouse. After using it last night and playing around with the features, I noticed the scroll ball wouldn't scroll to the left for the most part. Occasionally, if i pushed on the ball, it sometimes would move a bit, but not at the level of ease it scrolled right or up/down. Today, I returned it and got a replacement. I am experiencing the same problem, only with scrolling left. I have read about scrolling issues after use, but not right out of the box.

OS X :: Microsoft Mouse - Click Scroll Not Working

Jan 24, 2010

I'm using a microsoft intellimouse (USB to keyboard) on an iMac (late 2006), OSX 10.5.8

I recently connected my mighty mouse to the keyboard and changed some settings on the middle mouse button. Later I reconnected my microsoft mouse, and tried to change the settings back. Now, everything works as per usual, but my middle mouse click-drag scroll doesn't work

I can scroll by using the wheel up and down just fine, but if I try to click-drag, nothing happens. Is there any way I can fix this?

This is the second Mighty Mouse that I have had this happen on, I've tried the usual use a piece of paper and run it around the edge, tip it upside down and scroll the ball about and I've even tried using a can of compressed air but both of my Mighty Mouses still wont scroll down. Obviously I don't want to have to shell out again for another of these far inferior mouses so I was wanting to know if anyone know how I could fix it or get Apple to send me a new one?
