I have a 5 button mouse and a windows keyboard that hooks into my workstation of my macbook Pro and a monitor. I deal with a lot of annoyances as I am constantly virtual machine or remote desktoped to a windows or unix machine. All those aside. I'd love to lose the dependency of the trackpad for virtual desktops and mission control.
I'm using USB overdrive, and the native mac settings to set some keyboard shortcuts, but I'd really like to be able to do Ctrl+ mouse button 5 = launch mission control. in USBO I can map that to just the mouse button 5, but not the combo, as i'd like to keep the "forward" function of the mouse button.
any other tidbits of advice for using a windows keyboard(mine is ergo, necessary for not having painful wrists) are also appreciated.
