One possible solution for you is TouchMe Gesture Studio. I'm afraid it's not a free solution, although I believe it gives a trial period to make sure it's compatible with your machine. It gives you a lot more options for touch screen actions you can perform, including middle mouse click. Otherwise, I'm not sure there are a lot of options without building ...

I have found that tab mix plus add on for Fire fox will sort of do what you want. By setting the ctrl + click to copy url to clipboard. Only problem is that you have to open all the links that you want copied in tabs. Point is that people want to hold down a button on there keyboard and click a bunch of links and copy them all to the clip board one after ...

Old question, but still relevant I guess. In my case I wanted my touchpad to move faster than my external mouse. What worked for me is turning on the "momentum" option from the synaptics driver. This makes the pointer move on after you take your finger of the touchpad, as if it were a ball keeping rolling. Not the perfect solution, but it makes the slow ...

Use whatever shortcut keys you would like to define for moving between spaces, in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. Default should be control+← and control+→, but you can change it.

In the meantime, user BoffinbraiN has created another AHK script and compiled it into an EXE file. You don't need to install AHK, just download the ZIP Archive from this forum post and extract it somewhere. As soon as you launch the EXE, the scroll acceleration works. It's very fast, but I like it this way.

Here is another solution that hasn't been stated and is a bit better than setting mouse trails, etc. On the host computer, create a text file called config.ini in the "C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Workstation" folder. If this folder does not exist, create it. Add the following line to the file: mks.noHostCursor= "True" Save the file and relaunch your ...

The pointers on both primary and secondary monitors return to their normal arrow shape.

Typically, mouse movement is translated acceleration-sensitive, meaning that if you physically accelerate the mouse faster, it moves logically overproportionally more. For example a very slow movement of one inch might translate to 100 pixels on the screen, and a jerking of one inch might translate to a move across the whole screen. There is a good chance ...
