    Setting Mouse BUttons
    Hey, i just got a basic optical mouse the other day for my mac, and i was wondering if there is anyway to set what the buttons do. I'm mainly interested in the scroll wheel, as i want to change that so when i click it, it does the expose thingy. Is this possible to do? I went to System Prefs -> Mouse but that had nothing.....

    You would need a more robust driver to make changes to the functionality of special buttons and the scroll wheel. Did the mouse come with a CD? If so, did you check to see if it came with any kind of software for the Mac?

    If not, check into Steermouse. It offers a great deal of customization for any mouse. Highly recommended.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
