Windows On Mac :: Tap Click Too Sensitive And Touchpad Unresponsive

Jun 25, 2009

On OS X, the touchpad is perfect. I never accidentally tap click and mouse movements are perfectly smooth. On XP, the tap click is so sensitive that it's virtually unusable, and the touchpad has some responsiveness issues. Is anyone else having these problems, and is there a drivers fix? I'm using a 2.66ghz unibody MacBook Pro if that's relevant.

MacBook Pro :: New Touchpad Won't Click

Dec 25, 2009

It's brand new as of this morning - the mouse moves but I can't click on anything. I tried resetting the PRAM or whatever that is and I used the tab/space keys to get through the welcome screen. But now, I can't really do anything.

MacBook :: Touchpad - Unable To Use Right-click

Sep 22, 2010

I have the aluminum MacBook 13", I am having problems with the touchpad.. Sometimes when I click it'll stay in like right-click. Does that make sense? Like I am not right-clicking but the function is staying. And the cursor acts like it's being right-clicked, when it's not..

MacBook Air :: Touchpad Lost All But Click Functions

Dec 10, 2014

I have 2011 i5 13"MacAir. Touchpad has lost functions: no select, no drag/drag copy. it can position the cursor with a hard click (not as responsive as before), select a word with double click, do a 3 finger window drag.It recognizes tapping functions only and the 3 finger drag. It does not seem to recognize when a finger stays on the pad- no finger zoom in or out, etc.

i need an external mouse to use the Air- i don't have enough touchpad functions to work otherwise.Is this software or do i need a new touchpad? is it an expensive repair?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5), mid 2011,13", 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5

OS X :: Suddenly Can't Click Anything - Desktop Seems Unresponsive.

Oct 5, 2008

So I was just using my computer normally when I was suddenly having an issue where I could not click on anything. I was forced to hard restart but it did not help. I am still able to navigate with the trackpad or my mighty mouse (wireless) but clicking with either does nothing.

After some searching I have reset the pram multiple times and have also done command+S at boot and run fsck. Resetting the pram worked once, but only for maybe 5 minutes. During that time I ran a permissions test, it corrected 2-3 things but that is it. I have tried booting from the leopard cd but it spits the cd out.

OS X Yosemite :: Mighty Mouse Sensitive Vertical Scrolling Sensitive?

Dec 4, 2014

This issue may have been present in Mavericks as well, but I have no first hand experience with Mavericks. I was recently updated to Yosemite at work and this is when my Mighty Mouse (wired, with a scroll wheel button on top, NOT MAGIC MOUSE) started going nuts. 

I have my work settings matched exactly to the settings on my Mighty Mouse at home running on Mountain Lion. Horizontal scrolling is not an issue at all, but vertical scrolling is so incredible sensitive. I very slight scroll will send me to the op or bottom of a page in almost all applications. It is extremely annoying in my Adobe apps. I work in Illustrator moots the day and this scrolling issue has killed my production time.  

I use my vertical and horizontal scrolling quite a lot in doing my work. The vertical again is fine and seems to match my scrolling at home, but any more than a single click of the scroll wheel since updating to Yosemite will send my cursor off of the artboard, which is sometimes very large. I t has too often centime to the edges of the pasteboard which than takes forever to try to scroll back into position. I simply use the Fit Artboard in Window key command to center my work on screen and then gently scroll to where I need to be.  

To set my scrolling speed to slow will correct the vertical scrolling but will make my horizontal scrolling so heavy that I have to resort to using the hand tool to move around in my Illustrator app, which I have employed full-on at this point because it is the only consistent solution I have found. 

Many people have suggested that I get rid of the Mighty Mouse and use the Magic Mouse. I have many reasons for not doing this (my 3D work needs a middle button for one), but I have also been reading that these Magic Mouse users are having their own scrolling issues.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Tap To Click Unresponsive After Sleep?

Nov 20, 2010

I just got a 13" MacBook Air and I'm having an issue with it; googling around I've seen slightly similar problems, but nothing identical to what is going on with mine. I have the trackpad set to use the "tap to click" option in System Preferences and I've noticed that after I sleep the machine and wake it again, something gets bungled with it. The tap to click either stops responding entirely, requiring that I use the regular physical click instead, or it's highly, highly unresponsive. I've seen other reports of erratic clicking and the mouse moving on its own after sleeping the laptop.

Which thankfully mine isn't doing, but I haven't seen anybody reporting this slightly more demure issue. In any event, rebooting the machine fixes the problem completely until I sleep it next. I'm not 100% convinced that this is an Air issue, however, since I think it affected my 15" MacBook Pro to a lesser degree right after I upgraded that machine to 10.6.5, but I can't be entire certain of that since I no longer have that laptop and rarely used it without an external mouse in the first place.

MacBook Pro :: (Early 2008) Unresponsive Trackpad Button Not Register Click

Sep 7, 2009

I've noticed that when I try clicking on the trackpad's button, most of the time it will register the press and other times it doesn't. The button, physically, doesn't feel any different whether it registers the click or not. The button "clicks" down like normal and doesn't feel loose. Also, when I click and hold on the button and try to move my finger around the trackpad to highlight text or drag a folder, most of the time, the computer acts like I let go of the button and pressed it down again multiple times. While it does this, my finger remains on the trackpad button without being lifted. I recently upgraded my Mac to Snow Leopard but the problem occurred even with Leopard installed. I'm unsure as to whether or not this is a software or hardware issue. Could it be that there's something lodged under the trackpad button to cause this? If so, how would I be able to check under the button?

Windows On Mac :: Trackpad Super Sensitive In Bootcamp

Nov 2, 2009

I dual-boot OS X with Windows 7 (Home Premium) on my MacBook Air and the trackpad is super sensitive in Bootcamp. It's not the cursor speed, but the accidental "mouse clicks" while moving the cursor across the screen that have become troublesome (I daytrade securities in Windows, and a rogue mouse can be an absolute back-breaker). The only resolution has been to disable "tap to click" in the Bootcamp Control Panel. I've seen dozens of aged threads across the web regarding the issue that unfortunately provide no real solution for this. Do you have any solutions of your own?

Hardware :: Wireless Mighty Mouse Unresponsive In Windows 7?

Feb 8, 2009

I went through the install process of Windows 7 on my late 2007 MacBook with my Wireless Mighty Mouse and it worked fine. When it was all completely installed, I could use the mighty mouse like perfect (even the right click would work!) until I installed the drivers on the Windows Install Disk. The minute the install of the new drivers finished, my mighty mouse didn't work. I couldn't add it in the bluetooth devices either. I have no idea whats going on.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Is Black And Keyboard Might Be Unresponsive After Windows 7 Update?

Dec 4, 2014

I just bought a macbook pro, and I installed bootcamp and had everything running perfectly. I installed the drivers, and then I let windows 7 update while I went to sleep, when I woke up the macbook was turned off, then I tried to turn it on, and it sounded like it was about to boot up, but the screen is blank there is no cursor, it looks like it's not even on, and I think the keyboard is unresponsive because when I press caplocks it doesn't light up.

Windows On Mac :: Can't Right Click In 7 Ugh

Jan 31, 2009

I'm not able to right click in any method I've tried. I installed the Windows 7 Build 7000 64 iso file. I'm using the unibody aluminum Macbook 2gig. This is my first Mac so please forgive me if I'm being an idiot. I installed the BootCamp64 from the OS X DVD without a problem but since I can't right click I wasn't able to install it as an admin. I also downloaded the newest version from apple directly. I tried following everything in this link : [URL] I can't use the two finger method as that just acts like a single finger. I can't use the control-click option as that does nothing. I've tried Shift-F10 and that does nothing. I even found a program written 3 years ago, [URL] let me do the control-click but I can't get the optino to run anything as an admin so it isn't a fully functional right click. Does anyone have a clue what I've done wrong? Oh and I am able to use a two finger movement on the trackpad to scroll up and down, so that part of the track pad is working after the boot camp64 ran. I'm also able to use all of the function keys.

OS X :: Keep Windows On Top When Click The Backgorund Of Another App?

Aug 14, 2010

I'm currently using Logic and following an instructional .mov and going the the demos with and was wondering is there anyway I can keep the .mov window on top?

At the moment, when I click Logic the movie/quicktime window disappears behind Logic and I have to squeeze the mouse every time to get it back. I get that you can make the Logic window smaller, and have them side by side, though to have Logic fully open and click around in it whilst the quicktime movie is on top would be great.

To add, is there a way to actually keep any app on top when you click the background of another app?

Windows On Mac :: Mouse With Scroll Click Options?

Oct 6, 2010

bought an apple mouse and it won't connect, but reading on the forums the scroll click won't work anyways. and to be honest i wasn't happy about spending $75 on a mouse.

can i buy any windows mouse to run on it? i'd assume yes but want to verify. what i need is a mouse with the center scroll click to grab objects in pro/e to rotate them, which i can't do right now and its making things more difficult than it should. suggestions on mouses, or ones that you know do or don't work. does not matter if its wireless or wired. and if i can be picky preferably black.

OS X :: Windows With BootCamp Disables (Tap To Click) Function?

Nov 30, 2008

I have just used Bootcamp to install Windows XP on my girlfriends new Macbook. It worked quite well but there seems to be one small problem. When the computer has been booted into Windows, then the next time OS X is started the "Tap to click" function is disabled. When I go into system settings to enable it, I see that the check-box next to "Tap to Click" is checked. So to make it work I have to remove the check-mark and the click it again - then it is enabled again.

How can Windows cause this? It has me a little worried that it can have such an effect. To my knowledge the two systems should be COMPLETELY isolated from each other so the only answer must be that Windows actually changes some setting inside the trackpad that is remembered during boot. That is, a setting in the actual firmware or something?

OS X :: Minimize Windows With Mouse Double Click?

Feb 13, 2010

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?

OS X :: All Open Windows In Dock To Move From One To Other One With Single Click?

Nov 17, 2009

Do you know if there is any way to have all my open windows available in the dock to move from one to other one with a single click? Though I liked the Expos� per application feature, I would prefer having all my opened windows available in the same region they are minimized. On similar way, do you know if there is a way of having all the opened windows [instead of all the opened applications] available when doing COMMAND-TAB?
