    Apple Magic Mouse - Stick or twist?

    What do you believe the future of the Magic Mouse is? There are so many other great options on the market, I can't understand why anyone would choose this device over what's currently out there. Its ergonomics are poor, it has fewer features, and it has Lightning (admittedly, could be updated)...

    Mac Mini M2 Pro Monitor

    I’m purchasing a new Mac Mini M2 Pro and I’m just not sure what monitor to buy. I’ve already decided to get the Keychron C2 mechanical keyboard (or maybe Logitech MX Mechanical), and the Logitech MXS mouse. I want a wired keyboard. I just don’t trust the wireless stability. I haven’t made my...

    MacBook Pinch to Zoom/Trackpad in preview bug

    Hi, I’ve noticed that when zooming in on a JPEG with the preview app using pinch to zoom on the trackpad the zooming is very glitchy and not smooth at all. Eventually it stops working completely. This doesn’t appear to be as big an issue during quick look but when the photo is opened in the...

    Cursor stops changing icons after a few hours of work

    I have an annoying issue (and had this for a while on a couple of different Macs and different O/S versions). After a few hours of work, mostly in Electron apps (Figma, Miro, etc.) the cursor stops changing when hovering over resizing handles, using different tools. It also affects Chrome as...

    Cursor jumping and skipping around MacOS

    My cursor just jumps around after mid-movement like every 10s. It isn't much, but say on a 13" screen, if I move fast, it can jump 5cm. I use a Mac Mini M1 and Logitech G Pro wireless & MagicMouse (they both have the same issue). I disabled the mouse sharing with my iPad, just in case that...

    What are the exact settings to set on LinearMouse to get the same default mouse acceleration/speed as Windows 10-11?

    The cursor is accelerated when you check "Enhance pointer precision" on Windows 10-11. This is the default setting. What is the exact value of this parameter to set on the LinearMouse app to get precisely the same behavior on macOS with the same mouse hardware? This value can be set in a range...

    Mouse: How can I middle click without scrolling?

    I am using a Logitech MX Master 3 and just started learning Blender. In Blender you use middle-click a lot. Unfortunately, the scroll-wheel (which is also the middle button) is super sensitive and every time I middle click I also scroll (zoom) a little, which is incredibly annoying. Is there...

    Logitech G400 mouse in macos 12?

    If somebody would have already tested this, what would be the best way to allocate the 8 buttons in this mouse? I don't game, so that does not have to be considered. Options that I have found are: LogitechSetup_9.02.22 - support ended to macos10.15. lghub_installer - for newer gaming mouses...

    Setting up the Studio Kinda Sucks (Updated)

    Today was supposed to be fun, and interesting. Instead it was disappointing and frustrating. I “tore down” my 27” iMac setup. Reran all the needed wires, cleaned, etc. Then I set the Studio in place, then the monitor. Powered it on, and let it get through those first boots. Then I plugged in...

    Magic Mouse & Keyboard Updates?

    I love the Magic Mouse & Keyboard (especially the Touch ID version). Quality, intuitive products that have served me for a while. As I went to buy a new set, though, it had me thinking ? … Any idea if new versions are on the way? Or are we likely looking at these for a couple more years (not...

    Hi guys, Wondering if anyone has a solution beyond the safe boot (which I've tried) or purchasing a new USB adapter for a lagging mouse in Macbook Pro 2020. This issue is noticable and very annoying in Word (but happens in other apps too) when I try to highlight text. The mouse often just jumps...
