    B]okay, i am running leopard and fairly happy with it,,, not much of a reviewer because i just got into the apple world two months ago, buying a dual 867 mdd. some said i would not be happy with this rig, but i disagree,,with my 9800 pro..1.5 gb ram ,,this computer if fairly quick, and very happy with my $340 purchase

    questions- i have a logitech mx518 mouse connect to the one of the latest apple keyboards, white and has usb connection...i cannot use the backspace on my mouse,,is there a way i can get to use that function. ii miss it a LOT.

    quesstion 2- is there anyway i can open the safari brower twice during the same session.. sometimes i have a web page open and want it to say open, so i click on the safari icon in the docking station..and it just starts a new web page on the safari i have opened...???[/B]:confused:

    Have you tried pressing Command + n for a new window?

    I take it you mean back (as in the -) by the word "backspace"? Or something else?

    Anyway if you download USB Overdrive it enables you to add keystrokes and other functions to mouse buttons.

    okay..thanks

    if i do the control plus n,,it just opens my home pager into the browser i have open... i want to add another safari browser.,,so i have two open web pages at the same time

    yes, i was actually meaning backspace.

    okay, i downloaded the software , usb overdrive......works great...the only problem i was having was i download the first link on over-drive web site...i think i had to download the 3rd link,,and then the installer started up, and it was a piece of cake....backspace is something i just love.

    command(apple) - n opens a new browser window. You could also use command(apple) - t to open a new tab.

    i think he means he wants to open a new safari window as the same page he was on before like IE does when you open a new browser window. i dont think this can be done in safari. why not just use tabs? make sure tabs are enabled in safari preferences i dont think they are by default.
