    Is this where I ask about a Magic Mouse issue?
    Apologies all round if this is the wrong place but I have a query about using the Magic Mouse. I bought it on eBay along with a matching keyboard and I am delighted with it. The only snag is that it came with no instructions. No biggie except that I am used to a Logitech 5 button mouse which gives the user the ability to "Go back" a page or "Go forward" a page. That is much more user friendly that having to move the mouse pointer from wherever it may be up to the top left of the screen to click the "Back a Page" icon found there.
    What I'm asking really is, is there some way to make the mouse do a "Go back a page" thing by clicking a particular part of the mouse?
    Cheers for any info, even if only any alternatives to clicking that button at top left.
    Stevie.

    Specs:
    21.5" iMac, 3.06GHz duo, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, NVIDIA 9400M| 8GB iPod Touch
    Go to system preferences>mouse>then check "swipe to navigate"
    This way you can swipe two fingers across the top of the mouse to go forward/back in your browser.

    I'm back.
    The "swipe to navigate" box was already ticked when I got there so the problem was a dumb user who didn't know about "swiping" rather than a system malfunction. lol
    Many thanks

    To me, "swiping" means "stealing." So yes, even I wrestle with the terminology sometimes.
