I highly recommend the program called smooth mouse. It works perfectly for me.

Karabiner, which Joonas suggested, natively has back/forward options for buttons 4 and 5. You do not have to create a xtml file. The option is under 'pointing device' > 'button to key' > 'use button 4 and 5 as back/forward'. I have only used it for 30 minutes so far, but it worked straight away by just activating those checkmarks (mouse: ttesports black v2)

If you look at System Prefs > Displays > Arrangement, does it look like this? or more like this? If it looks more like the latter, then you will only be able to drag the cursor from one screen to another at the point they intersect on that picture. Trying to cross the border anywhere else will not work. Also make sure that the arrangement in the ...

Thanks to all. I was able to solve this puzzle:) Observation/solution: When we shutdown the Mac, the mouse and the keyboard go to sleep mode(this is instructed by the mac to the mouse/keyboard controllers) to conserve battery. I usually switch them off at this moment. For the mouse and the keyboard to work with the mac there is a bluetooth setup done by ...

On my Macbook Pro, every time I switch on the Magic Mouse I need to click on it to connect to my Mac. Maybe that's what you need to do ?

You will notice that as you choose different options from the "Assigned action" column in the dropdown menu that the options in the bottom half of the screen will also change to correspond with the Action you selected from the menu. This is slightly confusing at first, but makes almost immediate sense once you realize what is happening.

SOLVED IT! (At least for me...) I'm using a Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX, and was having the EXACT same problem not being able to assign Show Desktop, Mission Control, etc., to the mouse buttons from the System Preferences-> Mission Control area as I had previously. The reason is because I had installed Logitech's proprietary Control Center software which ...

The Google Multitask Mode is one of Google's fantastic April Fools jokes. Although technically possible to connect multiple pointing devices (USB mouses, Bluetooth mouses, trackpads, rollerballs, etc.) so far as I can tell, OS X presents only one cursor for all connected devices. This posting at SuperUser discusses this question, and one answer points to ...

For the most control, I would suggest Karabiner. How to add your own settings Basic syntax Below are some configurations. They should be doable, even if the mouse doesn't have any extra buttons. Idea 1: Change mouse middle button (AKA 3rd button or scroll wheel button) to Cmd+W <!-- Middle mouse button = Command + W --> <autogen> ...

The answer is very simple and works with any mouse. Click the red close button of one of the windows while holding the option key. All windows from that application will close. If you have a multi-button mouse, you can set one button or combination to be option-click.

There's always changing the default keyboard shortcut available as an option. Instead of using ⌘ Command+W, you can change these default settings to something on the right-hand side of your keyboard (i.e. ⌘ Command+', provided nothing is using this existing keyboard shortcut) to avoid moving your left hand off the mouse. To do so, navigate to the Shortcuts ...

In most applications, there is a "close window" menu option. The menu title will be wider than the stoplight control, and you can push the mouse all the way to the top of the screen, so it is as if the target has infinite height. This can make it faster to hit the menu than the small close window control. In most applications, if you hold option while ...

If you are using Magic Mouse - there's BetterTouchTool where you can set custom gestures. For example you can assign ⌘+w to three fingers click globally. Here's how this looks like: You can also assign actions to "Normal Mice" if it has additional keys.

You didn't mention what mouse you used, but for me, I use the Logitech MX anywhere mouse and have programmed the buttons to issue keystrokes specific to the way that I work. Zoom is ⌘Q for Quit The bottom button isF3 Mission Control The back button is ⌘W for Close The forward button is ⌘I for Get Info This is all built into the Logitech software and ...

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 ...

Try resetting the NVRAM. After all else failed this worked for me. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204063
