    I have a few issues with my Magic Mouse and can't find answers. I'm sure you folks will know them.

    1.Clicking the front end of the mouse seems to have different functions than the rear (apple icon). Clicking near the front results in the usual click functions, the back says "open in new window" and other phrases

    2. Why does the screen suddenly zoom way in? I must be touching some area of the mouse, but what? I can get the screen back to regular size my pressing Command/zero, but there must be another gesture of some sort.

    3. When I am working on a page it sometimes slips away to the right. What have I done there? Sometimes I can sweep to the left to get it back, sometimes I can't.

    Please let me know if there is a detailed description of mouse functions.

    System Preferences>Mouse will show you all the available gestures, with nice video clips, and allow you to turn various features on & off. For example your Smart Zoom is apparently set to the double-tap feature (as mine is) so a double-tap (not click) will zoom in, or back out.
