Terminal: How to Disable Multi-Touch on Apple Magic Mouse - how-to-disable-multi-touch-on-apple-magic-mouse.bash. Once you've used the hand-helping, time-saving, two-finger scrolling and three-finger gestures on a MacBook, a standard Windows trackpad can feel kind of, well, dead. Here's how to get total. The Magic Mouse is a multi-touch mouse that is manufactured and sold by Apple. It was first sold on October 20, 2009. The Magic Mouse is the first consumer mouse to have multi-touch capabilities.

SOME OF THE Frequently Asked Questions

Q.: What does the Trackpad++ Control Module user interface look like?
A.:Here is a screen shot. (Note: in the most recent version, both the appearance and the features may be different).

Q.: Why alternate trackpad driver for Windows 7 / 8 / 10?
A.: Apple trackpads are the perfect, probably world's best, touchpad devices. And the MacOS native driver is good: it unleashes almost all of the amazing trackpad capabilities. But the stock Windows driver provided by Apple for Boot Camp is, unfortunately, very far from being perfect. No support of 3+ finger gestures. No accelerated scrolling (yet the scrolling is too sensitive!). Dragging is just usable. And there is no vital option to ignore accidental input when typing. This is just an incomplete list of the issues every Boot Camp user is experiencing. So, the need of the better trackpad driver is obvious. In fact, if you are asking this question, then probably you have never tried to use Windows on an Apple Macbook Retina / Pro / Air :)

Q.: Do I need to install the Boot Camp drivers first? What are the supported Boot Camp and Windows versions?
A.: Yes, the Boot Camp drivers shall be installed (but normally it's already done automatically by Apple installer, right after you install the Windows). The supported Boot Camp versions are 3.0 - 3.3, 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1

Q.: Which devices except of the Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air are supported?
A.: NONE. The only supported devices are: Force Touch Macbook Pro 16' Late 2019, Macbook Pro 13' / 15' Mid 2020, Mid 2019, Mid 2018, Mid 2017 and Late 2016, Macbook 12' Early 2015, Early 2016, Mid 2017, Macbook 13' / 15' Early 2015 and Mid 2015; classic Multi Touch models: Macbook Pro (Mid 2009, Mid 2010, Early 2011, Late 2011, Mid 2012 / Retina, Late 2012 / Retina, Early 2013 / Retina, Late 2013 / Retina, Mid 2014 / Retina) and Macbook Air (Late 2010, Mid 2011, Mid 2012, Mid 2013, Early 2014, Early 2015, Mid 2017, Late 2018, Mid 2019, Early 2020).

Q.: Is it safe to install the Trackpad++? And, just in case, how do I remove the driver?
A.: Yes, it's completely safe to install, especially now when the driver is Microsoft-cross-signed, so its origin and integrity and fully assured. Just follow the simple installation instructions. Also (optional, but recommended step) you can install the Power Plan Assistant software first. In fact, the Trackpad++ does not interfere with any of the Boot Camp drivers installed. Instead, it seamlessly integrates into your existing Boot Camp installation. The setup procedure is transparent and fully automatic. If you would like to remove the Trackpad++ from your system, you can simply uninstall the Control Module (as you do with any Windows application - via Windows Control Panel) and, optionally, roll back to a 'HID-Compliant Mouse' driver via Windows 7 / 8 Device Manager. When the Trackpad++ Control Module is not installed anymore, the system will use the settings of the Boot Camp control panel, as if the Trackpad++ had never been installed.

Pro

Q.: Even with Trackpad++, the scrolling in my web browser isn't as smooth as in MacOS (Safari). Any suggestions?
A.: First of all, even in MacOS, other browsers do not provide the same ultra-smooth experience as Safari. So, the question is not just about the trackpad driver settings, but about how each specific browser handles the scrolling events it receives from the driver. For Windows, the answer would be - consider using the Opera or Firefox web browser. These browsers work best with Trackpad++, providing almost as smooth and as intuitive scrolling experience as Safari in MacOS. As to the rest of the browsers, the experience may not be 100% perfect. In any case, the Trackpad++ significantly improves scrolling behavior vs. the Boot Camp driver, so you should get noticeable improvement regardless of the web browser you are using.

Q.: I have got a question which is not listed there! How can I get an answer?
