With the Magic Mouse you hold a button and flick your finger across it to zoom in and out. And without the button held you move your finger to scroll. We all know this. But can I set up my Magic Mouse so I have to hold down a button to scroll as well. Why I ask this is because with some games I tend to scroll a bit when I do not want to. And having to hold down a button to do it would make it easy cause then I could only scroll when I wanted to. I think having this option would be nice for general work too.

Is something like this possible?
QUOTE Thanks
