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.)

May 31, 2010

Just purchased a Magic Mouse to use with my Macbook Pro. When I left click on a Bookmarked Website in Safari it does not open the website it gives me the option to rename the website. Very frustrating. I have to either click on the screen shot above the bookmarks or I have to right click and choose open.

Hardware :: Magic Mouse & Magic Trackpad Use With Imac

Nov 26, 2010

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.

IMac :: Magic Trackpad Much Better Than Magic Mouse - 27"

Aug 2, 2010

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

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.

IMac :: Magic Mouse Turning It Off?

Nov 30, 2009

I tried googling this right after I bought my new iMac (on black friday). There is a little switch at the bottom of the magic mouse for turning it on/off. My question is every time I turn off my computer should I switch the button to the off position? Is there any benefit from leaving it on/off?

IMac :: Better TouchTool & Magic Mouse

Dec 11, 2009

I posted this in another thread but justit suggested I put a new one up for more visibility. For anyone who hasnt at least tried the BetterTouchTool, this thing is amazing and a MUST have for anyone with the Magic Mouse or a touchpad. The latest update has made this utility something I would actually pay for. The developer seems to put an update out constantly. The latest update added single finger taps with customizable sensitivity as well as the existing 2 finger swipe up and down and many others. The developer also includes a TON of customizable features.
I havent even begun to explore all the different gestures.

IMac :: Mighty Mouse Or Magic Trackpad?

Dec 27, 2010

I recently got a preowned iMac which came with the Apple Wired Keyboard (with numeric keypad) and a Logitech mouse. Ive always been a fan of the idea of the Mighty Mouse even although it is old, the Magic Mouse looks really classy and cool but I do do a lot of graphic design and I am on the Mac quite a lot and I have heard it can get rather uncomfortable. And the Magic Trackpad, I am honestly not too sure about at all, what do you guys think would be best for me? I am a new Mac user so I am unsure what would be best for different features, thanks

IMac :: Use Wireless Keyboard & Magic Mouse?

Jan 5, 2011

I've been lurking around this forum for a few weeks, gathering information to decide what Mac I wanted to order. I appreciate all the information that is available here! I took the plunge this afternoon and thought I should register as I'm sure I'll have questions in the coming weeks. I played around with an iMac at an Apple Store a few months back and kicked around buying one. I really enjoy my iPhone and my iPad, but I kept thinking about the iBook G4 that has been gathering dust because I never really took the time to learn the Mac OS. Then my Windows laptop quit and I had to send it off for repair. I dug out the iBook and that put me over the edge. For whatever reason, I had no problems figuring out the OS this time around. I've been trying to figure out how to justify an iMac ever since. Today I ordered a refurbished 21.5" iMac from Apple's refurbished site. I ended up ordering over the phone -- I called Apple to ask a couple of questions, and when I mentioned that Amazon offered Apple Care cheaper, the sales rep gave me a discount on the Apple Care. Plus, I got a free (after rebate) AirPrint-capable printer. So, I think I ended up with a pretty good deal. After all that, I'll get to my question -- do you use the wireless keyboard & magic mouse? They seemed fine when I was using them at the Apple Store, but that was just for a short time. I'm wondering how I will like them when I'm editing photos or typing a long document (I deal with all the numbers I can handle at work, so I don't do much at home that would require the number keypad).

Oct 20, 2009

Do you think the new magic mouse will have any functionality on a Windows PC? I could see it bothersomw if I have to change the mouse when I boot into windows using bootcamp. I would think the basics should work under windows but the requirements say OS X.

IMac :: New Magic Mouse Do The Swipe Motions ?

Oct 22, 2009

Not sure what they call it but let's say that I have 4 open applications and/or 2 Safari windows. On my new MBP I can with 4 fingers swipe downward to cascade all of the open window or swipe up to go to an open desktop. I love this feature and I hope that this mouse can/will do this.

IMac :: Magic Mouse - Disabling/Uninstalling?

Nov 4, 2009

The Magic Mouse that shipped with my 27" iMac is more novelty than novel. While it is fine for browing the wen, etc... it sucks for professional use and for gaming.

I want to ditch it and use a standard old 3-button usb mouse. Is there a way to uninstall or disable the Magic Mouse capabilities?

IMac :: Cannot Use Secondary Click On Magic Mouse With I7

Mar 19, 2010

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.

IMac :: Magic Mouse Surface Work Like Trackpad?

Jan 8, 2011

Just unpacked my new iMac, the keyboard and mouse are powered up, paired, and discovered. BUT, I thought the "magic" of the mouse was that it's flat surface is supposed to work like a MacBook's trackpad. MINE DOES NOT. It just scrolls around, up and down within a window. Other than that, it works like a regular mouse, just move it, point and click. Is this right? Or did I mess up already? I called AppleCare and they say this is normal, but for what I paid, it should do more magic.

IMac :: Magic Mouse Automatically Scrolls Down Quarter Of Way

Aug 3, 2010

I've been playing with my new iMac for 3 days now and I am still at awe. It's my first Mac. It's a completely different experience from a Vista. However, there is a minor, but quite irritating issue. I don't know if it's with the iMac or the magic mouse (which I've got comfortable with) but any web page I go to, it automatically scrolls down almost a quarter of the way. I've tried different surfaces. Happens all the time. Just as I start reading something, it scrolls down and I've to scroll back up and it would do it again.
