    Every time I make an entry to the Discussion Thread I get multiple entries--maybe as many as 4. Then I have to go in and individually delete them. I never had this problem until I changed computers. I now have a Mac desktop with the Magic Mouse. I try to be careful when I hit the mouse to submit but I still get multiple entries. Anyone else have this problem?
    P.S......Don't tell me about Release Mouses!

    You're already using a "release mouse"... all computer mouses send commands only when the button is released.

    Me? I'd get rid of mr magic and replace it with a conventional mouse. The magic mouse is a novel concept but it's still just technology in search of a use!

    Have you checked the sensitivity settings, tracking speed and other things for your Mouse? They can be found in the Systems Preferences /Mouse window. You can set how fast it tracks, what happens on a single click, a double click and even the delay between the two double clicks, what it does when you use only one finger, or two fingers or three fingers on the mouse. You can set its scroll speed and a whole lot of other things.

    Take a look at the settings and check out the Help files. You might just find that the mouse is doing EXACTLY what you told it to do which is not what you THINK you told it to do and, most likely NOT what you WANTED it to do. (Computers are kind of fynny that way :)

    I have noticed the same thing only when I use my I-pad and it does not have a mouse connected to it. Go figure!
