    Hey!

    I got the Magic Mouse i bought like two days ago. i'm very new to Mac and i've been wondering if there is any way to make the Mouse Tracking even faster than it's possible on the System Preference.


    Thank you

    Look into the Menu Bar. Btw, applications normally go into the Applications folder.

    Example of icon location

    I don't know why but i don't have that Icon there.
    By the way, Can someone also explain me how there is a fast way to move from Mac OSX To Windows 7 in Boot Camp?

    Have a look at Activity Monitor ( Applications / Utilities / ) and select All Processes and sort by Name to see if BetterTouchTool is running.

    image below uses sorting by CPU as an example

    Have you installed the latest version of BTT?


    Restarting the Mac and booting into the other OS is the only option, as that is what is Boot Camp for, running Windows natively, therefore Windows has to run alone, while Mac OS X is not running. There is no other way, except you use a Virtual Machine (VM) software like Parallels or VMWare Fusion or Virtual Box to run Windows inside Mac OS X, but you will get no good performance out of graphic intense applications, games being the notorious example.

    There is no fast way; you have to restart to do it. You can use VMware fusion or Parallels but windows wont be the same...

    There's a little tool called BootChamp that makes switching from Mac OS X to Windows for Boot Camp users easier. On the Windows side, this need is handled by Apple's software.
