I want to use the additional buttons of my Rapoo N3600 Optical Mouse to navigate backward and forward in my web browser. How can I achieve this?

    AD isn't very well suited for basic customer support questions, see apple.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2508/… for details. As Rapoo claims that no additional software is required, did you already reach out to support@rapoo.com? And in case you did, what kind of answer you got? – nohillside Jul 28 at 13:54
  • I just wrote a mail to the support. Let me see what they will answer. The buttons are active, when I press them scrolling mode is entered. As I could not find additional software I was hoping that there is a system property that can change the behaviour of the buttons. – Michael S. Jul 28 at 13:58

    You might want to try USB Overdrive. From the site: The USB Overdrive is a device driver for macOS that handles any USB or Bluetooth mouse, keyboard, trackball, joystick, gamepad or gaming device from any manufacturer and lets you configure it either globally or on a per-application, per-device basis. – IconDaemon Jul 28 at 14:13

    Let's see what answer you get. There are already several similar questions on AD, with most answers recommending USB Overdrive. So that's probably the next stop then :-) – nohillside Jul 28 at 14:15
  • I looked over the Rapoo N3600 Optical Mouse site. not the best. some links were dead. I was hoping to download the doc. I think you need to download and install their mouse driver. Standard mouse drivers support only the standard mouse buttons. – historystamp Jul 29 at 18:51

The solution is to use USB Overdrive. I could remap Button 4 and Button 5. Make sure you use Keyboard Shortcut and select Back and Forward from Keyboard shortcut to type.
