Had the same issue with my MacBook Pro. Didn't have JiTouch installed. What seems to have resolved it for me was to adjust my Accessbility settings: System Preferences -> Accessibility -> Mouse & Trackpad There is an option, which was unchecked, "Spring-loading delay:" I moved the slider all the way left to "short". This seems to have fixed it for ...

So far, I learned from experimenting and the blogs: I have to REMOVE (not just DISCONNECT) the Bluetooth mouse in Mac OS X, before I can pair it in BootCamp Windows.

I managed to work it out: if you use BTT to map clicking the scroll wheel to the shortcut ⌘ + ctrl + D , it will show the dictionary lookup box for words, but also allows you to preview files in Finder (like pressing space) or Force Clicking a web link.

To my knowledge it is turned off by default. However, all it allows is for applications run in the Terminal to see the position of your mouse cursor. This could be useful for things like games where you use your mouse. So in most cases, it simply does not matter. To turn off Mouse Reporting, just press Cmd-R again. However, if you really want to reset your ...

One of the best apps that I have found that can do that is BetterTouchTool. It is free for MacOS 10.6+ It allows you to create links from all kinds of gestures, and button combinations. It works for the Magic Mouse, Normal Mice, Touchpads, Apple Remote, Siri Remote, Etc. I was unable to get the cmd+scroll alone to work, but cmd+shift+scroll works great. To ...
