    HELP! Mouse issues
    My new iMac came with a wireless mouse. I like it a lot.

    However, when I am on my MacBook and another family member is on the iMac the mouse works on both machines at once.

    How do I change the settings on my Macbook so that it isn't reading the external mouse?

    Thank you!,

    Specs:
    Currently 13" Late 2010 MBA, 4GB/128GB; Early 2011 13" MBP, dual core i7 2.7ghz, 4gb ram, 500gb hd
    On the MacBook, open System Preferences->Bluetooth and delete the connection to your mouse.

    Specs:
    2008 15" MBP Yosemite, 2012 21.5" iMac Yosemite
    Or instead, you could just turn the BT off in that same section of System Preferences so you don't have to pair with the mouse again next time you want to use it with the MB ...assuming you want to use it again with the MB.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    I really don't want it paired with the macbook as I use the trackpad on that. However, I may use it at some point, I just haven't needed/wanted to yet.
