I saw in another forum that Mac keyboards can be used on PCs. Has anyone tried that for the mouse?
I used my Apple mouse with my roommate's Dull laptop, and it worked fine.
That being said, I felt bad for my mouse because it had to be connected to the Dull
how do you right click then?
works for me. It makes it work so that you can use the ctrl key and the mouse button and it will right click. Just like on mac
Sweet, the mouse works!
sour. what works for mac works for PeeC.
thank the lord it isnt the other way around, as i post this on my ibm thinkpad. hehe.
I was borrowing my mum's Windows laptop once, and I didn't want to use the laptop keyboard so I plugged in my Apple keyboard and mouse. All went fine until I tried to control-click
Fortunately the internal trackpad has two buttons.
Related question: Back in the mid-90s, I had heard that the right mouse button was a 'shortcut button' to let you quickly get at common commands. How do you do an 'Arrange by Name' on the desktop icons without using the shortcut menu?
Or, for that matter, how do you open an item on the desktop? After all, a double-click is the shortcut for 'perform the default action'.
Many years, many machines
Yup - I've been using Mac keyboards and mice on Wintel machines since the current mice (post hockey pucks) came out.
It's kind of funny - on some machines, they work flawlessly. On others, you can't even get it to accept your typed letters without a driver. But, I guess that's why it's called "plug 'n pray".
So, yes, use your Mac input devices. Your joints will thank you!
