SteerMouse is a utility that lets you freely customize buttons, wheels and cursor speed. Both USB and Bluetooth mice are supported.


  • SteerMouse does not support the Apple Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and some special features.

Both USB and Bluetooth mice are supported, no matter whether the mouse is designed for Windows or Mac.

System Preferences only lets you assign Mission Control to buttons. In contrast, SteerMouse has a variety of functions:

Cursor Movement

  • Move the cursor to a specific location, such as the default button, close button, etc. Allows for a click after moving.

  • Click a mouse button. You can assign modifier keys, lock the click, etc.

Switch Applications

  • Open a file or application. This brings all windows of the application to the front.

Mission Control
