    I am new to Mac and searched for these questions in a few places, but have not found a good answer yet.

    Is there any way to program a regular USB non-magic mouse to do the following:

    1. Use the side button to go back to the previous screen.
    2. Use the scroll wheel and a keyboard key to zoom the text of a page-- like the Command+ combination, not zoom like Control+scroll.

    Thanks!

    What kind of mouse? Logitech's control center allows you to customize their mouses' buttons, but not sure about others.

    It is a Logitech 4 button mouse with a scroll wheel, and I have downloaded the Logitech software but the configuration options are limited. It does not permit the 4th button to be used as a back command, nor does it address the zoom feature.

    Any other suggestons?

    Same/different?
