    Hello all,

    Though I have converted to Mac I don't want to give up my M$ Wireless Keyboard and Mouse.

    As such, is there a way to utilize the "back" button on my mouse to allow one to backup? ie go back to the previous web page, folder, etc, etc.

    Thanks
    David

    I have a Microsoft wireless mouse and in System Preferences, I have a "Microsoft Mouse" pane. There I can assign "back" to a button and it works in Finder, Safari and co.

    Hmmmm. It's not there on mine.

    Did you just plug yours in or run the M$ install CD?

    Thanks

    That's probably my issue then. I'm off to bed but will try tomorrow.

    Thanks again,
    David
