Is there a way I can switch between workspaces with a mouse?

I know I can configure keyboard shortcuts for this, and I can also configure trackpad 3/4 finger swipe up for mission control then select workspace from there.

But is there a method for switching workspaces with only mouse?

  • What type of mouse? I know Apples Bluetooth mouse can do the exact thing you're asking

You can, of course, use the mouse to click on Mission Control in the dock and then click on your space. It takes 2 clicks but still pretty quick!


Better Touch Tool allows you to trigger actions through mouse clicks. That ought to solve the problem. According to their website:

BetterTouchTool is a great, feature packed app that allows you to customize various input devices on your Mac. Currently BetterTouchTool supports: ... Normal Mouse Buttons

Here's a link to some documentation on mouse actions.
