    I am running the latest non-beta build of El Capitan on a new mid-2015 iMac/Retina and just started using a non-Apple Bluetooth Mouse.

    How do I get the OS to see/acknowledge the side buttons on the mouse? It is an Tecknet BM306 Bluetooth mouse. It connected fine in the Bluetooth settings panel but I don't see anyway to assign the side buttons.

    (I did check the manufacturer's website and they have nothing as far as a FAQ or manual BTW.)

    Thanks but that is not the same mouse and (more importantly) the one you linked to does not even seem to be a Bluetooth mouse - at least according to the picture, so I doubt their Mac drivers would work.

    Yes I know. I just wanted to tell you, that you need a mouse with drivers for OS X if it has more than standard features and to look out for the availability of those drivers before you buy a mouse.
