    New to the Mac world, been a PC user my entire life and just made the switch and loving it, but have a few questions. I purchased iMac and the wireless keyboard and mighty mouse. Questions are pertaining to the mighty mouse.

    Is there a way to program the mouse to use the side buttons as a back button on the web? Also I have the tracking speed all the way up and the mouse still seems slow moving, any options for this? I plugged in my old PC wireless mouse the the speed moving it was so much faster? I really want to use the new mouse, but it seems slow and not quick to respond when I do things. Suggestions?

    I too am a recovering pc addict.

    I tried to stay with the mighty mouse for 4 weeks. Then I came to my senses and bought a Logitech wireless mouse with all the bells and whistles. It plays well with my Mac and now I'm a happy camper.

    i use my side buttons for spaces. I hate using my work mouse now because the side buttons are too easy to press - M$ jobby. I'm forever going backwards when browsing instead of forwards!

    Well first of all, for the speed problem, try going into System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Mouse > and on the bottom you should see a speed slider. Drag left or right depending on how fast you want the tracking to be.

    Second, in the diagram with the mouse, go near the bottom and find the selection that lines up with the side buttons. Click the drop down menu and select other. Then configure it to do the back/forward options you want. Hope this helps.
