These problems are also why a lot of users prefer to use a third-party mouse on their Mac. Fed up and thinking of doing the same? Here are several tips and tricks to help you get set up and comfortable.
Modern Macs support nearly all USB and Bluetooth devices, so finding a compatible mouse shouldn't be a problem. Even if the device is sold and marketed for Windows, the chance that it won't work on your Mac is virtually zero, at least as far as basic features go: cursor tracking, button clicking, wheel scrolling.
If the mouse has special functionalities, like buttons for window switching or changing system DPI settings, they probably won't work properly on your Mac. That's because those unconventional features require special manufacturer drivers that are usually only available for Windows.
Setting up a USB mouse on a Mac is as simple as plugging it in, even if it's a third-party device. For Bluetooth mice, first navigate to System Preferences > Bluetooth, then switch the mouse on (and enable discovery mode if necessary). Wait until it's discovered, then click Pair. That's it!
Once the mouse is connected, navigate to System Preferences > Mouse to configure it. There aren't many settings to change here, but it's enough for the most basic of tweaks. You'll also notice a Set Up Bluetooth Mouse button, which provides another way to set up a mouse on your Mac.
There's one more way to tweak your mouse settings without involving third-party software: go to System Preferences > Accessibility > Pointer Control. Here you can play around with the Mouse Keys feature of a Mac, which allows you to move the cursor using a keyboard numpad.
Feeling limited by the basic settings offered by the default Mac mouse driver? Then consider installing USB Overdrive, a third-party app that offers precision tweaking. It costs $20, but you can use it for free indefinitely by putting up with a 10-second window that appears whenever you want to tweak your mouse settings.
Click the plus (+) button to add a new action. USB Overdrive will wait for you to do something with your mouse (for example, press an unusual button), then create a new action for it if it doesn't already exist.
The bottom-left section is separate from the others. Wheel Button determines which mouse button acts as you click the scroll wheel. Speed is a more fine-tuned way to tweak cursor speed. Acceleration changes the acceleration ratio (the faster you move the mouse, the more distance traveled by the cursor).
BetterTouchTool comes with hundreds of predefined system-level actions, such as Open Finder, Volume Up, Hide All Windows, Capture Screenshot, and Log Out. Most of these aren't well suited for mouse binding, of course, but there are two system-level actions that you do need for mice:
You shouldn't need much else other than the tools outlined above. Between System Preferences, USB Overdrive, and BetterTouchTool, you should be well-equipped to customize your mouse settings however you want, down to the nittiest and grittiest details.
I have a wireless USB mouse by Anker ( -UBA) with a few extra buttons that I would like to take advantage of on my Macbook Pro (running OS X 10.11.6). On their website, it says that these buttons can only be used in Windows browsers. Is there a way I can use a third-party tool or something else to allow me to use these extra buttons on my Mac?
A solution that comes builtin with Mac OSX (without third-party apps nor workarounds) is setting the mouse three buttons within Settings, Mission Control, Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts. Here you'll be able to select the action for each of the buttons.
If you don't want to use extra software, one funny workaround is to connect a Mighty Mouse (not a Magic Mouse) and go to the mouse preferences. The Mighty Mouse has buttons 3 and 4, the scroll wheel click and side buttons squeeze respectively, and you can map those to custom actions. Then you can connect your third-party mouse, and those buttons on it will still perform the actions you set. Haven't done this in a while, so can't confirm it works in the latest macOS. There must be a defaults write command to do this instead, but I can't figure it out; the mouse prefs files just have integer values for buttons 3, 4, and 5 that don't seem to affect anything when changed.
Hi there,I recently purchased the anker wired optical mouse. I would like to program the back and forward buttons, wheel actions. However, am having trouble to do that on windows 10 via control panel as it has just a few general settings, such as setting a primary button or Roll the mouse wheel to scroll multiple or single lines. I am not able to see the back forward buttons or how to map them to other keyboard functions such as page up and page down.

Subject says it all for the most part. I have an external USB hub connected to one on my Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports on my MacBook Air early 2020 model running Catalina 10.15.4. At random times during the day (2-3 times a day) my Logitech G602 mouse and external Apple Keyboard will stop responding completely and only a reboot will restore functionality. The USB 2.0 HUB under System Information->Hardware->USB completely disappears until the MacBook is reported. Disconnecting/reconnecting the USB Hub does not resolve the issue. I have attached a screen capture of what the USB device looks like normally when things are working correctly. This MacBook Air has replaced a late 2019 MacBook Pro that was running Mojave and then Catalina 10.15.4 for the last 2 days of use. Using the same USB hub and external devices I did not experience this issue with that configuration. Granted I only was running Catalina for 2 days with the MacBook Pro 2019.
Yeah, on my MacBook Air 2020 my wireless usb mouse cuts out too when using the 2.4ghz USB A receiver plugged into the USB A ports on my USB-C hub. My workaround is using a USB-A to USB-C adapter, and plugging that into the USB C port on my hub, and for some reason that solves it. But when the receiver is directly plugged into the USB A ports on the hub, it intermittently cuts out.
I understand that you are having issues with your Logitech G602 mouse and external Apple Keyboard intermittently disconnecting during normal use. I am more than happy to guide you in the right direction.
Hi Becky, thanks for the reply and the suggestions. I did review If your Apple wireless mouse, keyboard, or trackpad isn't working with your Mac as expected but nothing suggested in the article seemed to help.
Earlier today I noticed an older version of the Logitech Unifying Software was installed under Application->Utilities (ver 1.2.359). This version seems to be from 2014. Not even sure how this version worked with Mojave. In ny case, I removed this version from my MacBook Air and am now just using a generic Bluetooth mouse to test with since I believe the Logitech G602 mouse and the Logitech Unifying Software ver 1.2.359 is the culprit. If all goes well with the generic Bluetooth mouse and my Apple Keyboard doesn't stop responding then after a couple of days I will re-add the Logitech G602 mouse back into the picture and install the recommended Logitech Unifying Software ver 1.3.375.
Just to close the loop on this. There appears to be compatibility issue with Catalina and the Logitech Unifying Software and driver for MacOS. Even after updating the Unifying driver to the latest version on Logitech's website the Logitech Unifying Software still does see the Logitech G602 mouse. It doesn't look like Logitech has updated the driver software since 2018. I even tried the Logitech Unifying Software on another MacBook running Catalina and the software on the other MacBook also did not recognize the Logitech G602 mouse. I even tried updating the firmware on the Logitech Unifying receiver that came with the Logitech G602 mouse but it would not recognize the receiver USB dongle. MacOS Catalina does see the mouse as a USB Receiver HID device so the mouse does work. It just goes unresponsive and disappears every few hours. I did not see this behavior with Mojave with this same mouse. I have not tried reinstalling MacOS Catalina at this point since I have moved on with a generic Bluetooth mouse at this point. But, this just appears to be a device capability issue with Catalina.
Suggestion to Apple: I'm not sure if Apple has a hardware certification program like Microsoft but that would be a great thing to have. That way a user could verify if a 3rd party device, such as a mouse or keyboard, has been certified to work with a particular OS version. Logitech claims Catalina is supported but it would be helpful if they actually had to certify their devices to make that claim.
I have a late 2016 MBP and the latest OS updates. This morning, none of my Logitech USB devices (K750 keyboard, M310 mouse) worked either. I thought it might be a faulty older usb 2 hub, but testing with a new USB-C to USB 3 hub, I got no recognition of the devices. I needed to work rather than troubleshoot all day, so I bought an extended mac bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse, which work well. I am also concerned that there is something going on with the usb connectors or how the system software handles usb 2 devices. I did upgrade both the firmware and the logitech unifying software prior to going all bluetooth. Please fix this issue..it sounds like something more than external hardware. Thanks 2b1af7f3a8
