I had a similar problem with a Logitech wireless mouse. I "fixed" it by relocating the mouse dongle. For some reason, when the ethernet cable is plugged in near the adjacent USB port, the mouse gets jittery, sluggish or even freezes. Simply moving the mouse receiver to the front of the case solved the issue, but I really have no idea why the ethernet cable ...

Use option click. You can set your mouse to use right click in the System Preferences. Go to the  logo at the top left of your screen to get there. Or click the icon on your dock.

OS X has a bit of mouse input lag and acceleration. You can fix this by installing SmoothMouse. It works great for me in CS:GO. You can enable and disable it separately for the mouse and trackpad from the preference pane.

I had the same problem. After logging in to Yosemite 10.10.4 on my MacBook Pro (mid-2014) the left click on the trackpad did not work. Also, when hovering the pointer over links etc. they were not clickable. Right click were fine. Rebooting did not have any effect. It was possible to left click on the Shutdown button in the login screen so the trackpad ...

IMO - the true fix for this is to get off 2.4 GHz when it's not reliable. I put together a bit of a guide on how to know if you have to spend the $$ to get a better frequency, and the tools/books are about $20 each. Get off 2.4 GHz - use 5 GHz as it's far less susceptible to interferance and channel overlap. If you are on 2.4 - get a tool like WiFi ...

Depending on your PC specs you may use a VGA or HDMI USB KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch. This will allow you to connect 2 or more computers to one screen, mouse and keyboard, and switch between them pressing a button. The keyboard and mouse must be USB (wired or wireless) in this case, so they work on both computers. There are plenty on Amazon and ...

Boot into the startup screen (hold the option key) and see if the mouse is janky then. If so, hardware issues. If not, boot into safe mode (hold shift) and see if it's still janky. If not, reboot normally. This will at least let you know where the issue is. You can ask a follow on question once this troubleshooting is done.

I had a similar issue and I stopped having it by turning off bluetooth. I had no bluetooth device connected when the problem happened.

Try this: Go to Accessibility settings for Mouse & Trackpad in System Preferences. Tick the "Ignore built-in trackpad when mouse or wireless trackpad is present" option. Then, with your mouse connected, go back to your Mouse settings in the System Preferences and adjust scrolling accordingly.

Here's my solution, which I named Window-Snapshot, base on a very simple AppleScript, either saved as an application from within the Script Editor and or used as part of an Automator Service with keyboard shortcut assigned. Although as a Service it uses the third-party utility used in the Window-Snapshot AppleScript application's one* mouse-click solution ...

I am running 10.10.4 on a mid 2010 iMac 27" and wish to let you know that the Microsoft Arc Bluetooth mouse is not even recognised using bluetooth properties, let alone synchronise. There seems to be a lot of forums describing issues with this mouse. Considering I just bought two whilst in the USA (for the iMac and my daughter's Macbook Air) I feel let down. ...

One approach would be to use the screencapture command: screencapture -w window.png which will capture the first window you click after you run the command, and save it as window.png. There are a few different ways you could bind this command to a keyboard shortcut, e.g. by creating an Automator service that runs it as a shell script, or by using a ...

What you need to do is change the key mappings on your mouse. What this does is tells your computer what to do when you press key X. For Mac… MapKeyboard is a free program to remap your keyboard. Using MapKeyboard, you can alter any key on your keyboard to function as a different one or altogether disable it as well. This is an essential tool for ...

I am having the same issue, and for now the only solution I found was to use a usb mouse. I think the problem began with 10.10.4, but I am not sure. It only happens to me with Chrome and Steam mostly.
