    Thumbs up magic mouse trouble and fix


    Just got home and setup magic mouse no joy as scroll feature and window to select options not to be had!

    the cure you must go to software updates and get a download that fixes this issue then your mouse will work as advertised.

    I did this 10 minutes ago with apple support he said it just came out 15 minutes ago.

    hope this helps someone here too. have a nice day ,mystified

    i got mine today, and had the same problem.

    Then i read the manual where it said to do this, and now it works.
    Though, posting the fix in here is a good idea since there are a lot of peeps who don't read the book first, and go to the forums.

    I did go to software up date before even enabling bluetooth and all I got was an i tune update and then did it again after that said no up dates at this time? so I wonder if one has to have the mouse as I did paired to the mac first and then look for updates for it, what do you think? mystified

    ^^ I think you are right. Having the mouse paired before finding the update seems logical.

    Magic Mouse using bootcamp and windows xp
    New magic mouse works very well with the Mac OSX software, but when will apple release windows software for it that will allow it to work the same when booting into windows using bootcamp? At present I am using two different mice, one for Mac and one for Windows XP.

    Did you install the software and check the box in the Mouse system preference?
    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!
