    :cool:

    OK I use a Logitech M510 wireless mouse...and Logitech dropped the ball on getting things upgraded for El Capitan. I upgraded to El Capitan from Mavericks and everything has been great except my mouse.

    Now I've posted on Logitech's support forum...they're advice is to pull the receiver unit and reinsert and/or restart...and neither worked..and I'm not the only one.

    So in spite of all the ball bustin' I've done I'm getting nowhere. I love the extra buttons on my M510...worked great on Mavericks...I use the side buttons for FWD/BACK on web pages...

    Anyone using anything that works? I'll even break down and get a "Magic Mouse" if it will customize in the manner I'm looking for.

    Thanks!:)

    I have to wonder if the free app BetterTouchtool might help with this issue.

    Uninstall the Logitech software. Search for SteerMouse.

    As poster above said, try SteerMouse.

    Also investigate "USB Overdrive" ...

    as others have mentioned you can install SteerMouse or USB Overdrive but eventually after the trial period you have to pay for the support which allows you to assign the actions of the FWD/BACK buttons on your mouse. both cost $20 and would be waaay cheaper than having to buy an Magic Mouse or newer Magic Mouse 2.

    As mentioned in my previous post, you should try BetterTouchTool, it's free and is customizable for mouse buttons on regular mice.

    Quote from BTT web site...
    "BetterTouchTool

    BetterTouchTool is a great, feature packed app that allows you to configure many gestures for your Magic Mouse, Macbook Trackpad and Magic Trackpad and also Mouse Gestures for normal mice. It also allows you to configure actions for keyboard shortcuts, normal mice buttons and the Apple Remote. In addition to this it has an iOS companion App (BTT Remote) which can also be configured to control your Mac the way you want."

    Here is another vote for BetterTouchTool. The app is intuitive and powerful.

    Have you tried any of these suggestions yet?
