    & in turn, assign a larger footprint to left click (say 2/3 for left & 1/3 for right). I've got big hands & the way I hold the mouse, I'm always right clicking when I mean to left click (I hit it a little right of middle too often).

    Is there an app that can do this?

    I believe BetterTouchTool can do this but I've been trying to configure it and can't quite figure it out.

    Maybe someone else can chime in because j have the same problem.

    I think MagicPrefs can allow you to pick where the "target" points are for each function. In addition, it allows you to add more swipe and tap features.

    Enabling the middle zone for left click in MagicPrefs is the solution. I left my regular settings the same (in System Preferences) & the combination of those two essentially makes the left click/right click a 2/3-1/3 setup just like I wanted.

    That's all I was really interested in doing & it works like a charm. :)

    Thanks for the info.

    Glad you figured it out.

    I was about to tell you to get smaller hands.

    Right, but it's not as easy as it sounds when you have large hands. It's not as bad on most mice, but the Magic Mouse is fairly small & it's much more comfortable for me to only keep my index finger on it.
