Use Apple Magic Mouse On Windows 7

Who didn’t see this coming? Apple’s latest multi-touch capable Magic Mouse now works on Windows. Yes you heard it right, from Windows XP to Windows 7, it can work on them all. But this is not an official update from Apple, rather it was done by hacking the Apple’s Bluetooth Update. Thanks Dan! Now I can’t wait to get my hands on the Magic Mouse. Download links for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are given below.

Those who have used Magic Mouse know that people have a love-hate relationship with it. On one hand it is utterly useful if configured correctly, on the other hand the sensitive touch can be a tad too much for power users. Nevertheless, the drivers only allow users to use the basic functionality of Magic Mouse in Windows. You can left click and right-click just fine, even scrolling works. But don’t expect the swipe effects to work since they are only exclusive to Mac OS X.

Apple Magic Mouse


For Mac users: These drivers are not meant for those who are running Windows on Macbook using Bootcamp because if installed correctly, your Magic Mouse should automatically connect. This is because Apple installs the necessary drivers required for your Magic Mouse to work on Windows. However, if you are using Hackintosh or have installed Windows without Bootcamp, then you will need these drivers to make the Magic Mouse work. Again, it should be noted that it only activates the basic functionality of the Magic Mouse in Windows.

    Mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny thanks to that gentelman who wrote this driver….Thannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnks my buddy :)

      Hello,

      I have installed the driver a few times and nothing seems to happen.
      I am running Windows 7 Ultimate on a Macbook using BootCamp 3.2.

      When i try to add a new Bluetooth device, Windows sees my Magic Mouse and when i click Next, it says CONNECTING TO DEVICE, and it stays like that for hours.

      Any help would be much appreciated.
      Thanks!

      • bj kellam

        You have to pair it first before you can connect it. btw, if it asks you for a pass key, the pass key is 0000.

  • wanlop

    it works but have to download by using firefox. so scrolling up down work well, but cannot zoom in and out or left or right scrolling don't work

  • http://www.docmurdock.com Michael Murdock

    well..it’s nice to have it work, but…using a Mac Mini running Windows 7 64 bit, the mouse use is sporatic at best. It’s not consistent in flow across the screen when moving the arrow, in fact it will stop and my hand is still moving, which is not good. but the zoom does work with control key in web browsers that support that like chrome, and the mouse does function a little bit. Hope there’s a tuneup at some point. Thanks for the effort.

  • The Doctor

    After Installing a USB Bluetooth Receiver And the 32 Bit Apple Drivers. I turned on the Magic Mouse and everything worked like a dream. The only thing is that the mouse takes few seconds to activate when windows 7 starts. It takes a bit of getting use to not having a wheel. but other then that 2 thumbs Up.

    Does this mouse only work on apple computer? Dose this work on any computer in any system or only works on apple?

  • http://paradime.net/ Samuel Hurley

    The only functionality I felt was missing was middle click. I compiled an AutoHotKey script (Win7 64 bit, although it probably works on 32 also) to emulate middle click.

    You must right click, then tap on the left side of the mouse. It takes some finesse (to avoid right-clicking also), but it works fairly well.

    Here is the script: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5131732/MiddleClick.exe

      hello,

      I downloaded your programm but theres one problem. Everytime I shut down my computer and start it up again I have to re-install it. Could someone help me out here

      • doc holid3y

        keep the exe file “MiddleClick” on your desktop, drag it into “startup” in your programs folder. the script should start everytime you start your computer

    My story… windows xp sp3.
    No problem installing Bluetooth. Other windows product are harder to install.
    Then the UnEasySilence drive. But windows do not allow me to use the modified aple drive…
    Now I have installed the sidwinder drives… but still not able to scroll….

  • Greg

    I don’t know why you guys are crowing about this. I bought it, installed it and it’s great except that it’s unusable because it locks up every so often for about 3-4 secs. I’ve tried it with two machines, a laptop with built-in bluetooth and a PC with a bluetooth dongle, both on 32bit Windows 7 and they both have the same problem. I tried several work arounds from different forum suggestions and none of them help. I’ll reluctantly have to return it…

    • Ray

      Greg, I had the exact same problem but was ableto solve it by replacing my Microsoft dongle Bluetooth dongle with a generic Hama model and that part worked out well. Now that I replaced the dongle however, I somehow lost the scroll feature that worked B4. Once I figure that piece out, it will be golden.

  • Dedy Hidayat

    It works..click on the bluetooth icon (down right of your screen) then click add device. Apple magic mouse will be appeared. But it won’t be connected directly (keep spinning around). Right click on the mouse image and Tick on the HID bluetooth box and bingoooo it will be connected smoothly.
    However scrolling function not yet work. If you want your magic mouse work, go to
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL996
    and download update drive boot camp 3.1. It’s preety big (380MB)….so sit nicely while you’re downloading….try this and your expensive magic mouse will be worked perfectly..if dont just let me know and I’ll be happily to help you…

      Hi there…. I tried that but when I right click nothing happens… I am using a Lenovo T61

    • roger landa

      Bull shit!!

  • Jeff

    These drivers do NOT solve the whole issue. It seems that only a superficial layer of drivers has been provided by Apple and no-one is looking for a full solution.

    While the Apple drivers do add multi-touch support, this is pointless as it also makes the standard mouse functions almost unusable. Unless you are careful to place the correct combination of fingers on the mouse at all times, the cursor movements are jittery and frustrating.

    I can reproduce this type of behavior simply by resting the edge of my palm on the mouse and attempting to move the cursor. The movement becomes erratic until I place my index and middle finger in the “right” spots.

    To further complicate things, it seems that if you do attempt to use the scroll features the mouse commands quickly become “overloaded” and the mouse cursor freezes for a few seconds and then spits out the commands as they were input.

    What seems to be lacking are proper drivers to fine tune the device and prevent accidental input. Perhaps the Apple bluetooth drivers sorts this out on Mac hardware, but any Windows user will find themselves very disappointed.

    • Steve G

      You have addressed the exact “REAL” problem specifically! And, Im certain you already know that the driver from Shahell fixes “lag and jitters” very well. Only experimented for several minutes but so far, it appears to be resolved, thanks to Shaheel

    To those of you who are having lags, disconnection, and scrolling problems, use the following link:

    I’ve repackaged the bootcamp 3.1 Wireless Mouse Update that corrects all these.

      Can you extract/convert the 64 bit drivers as well?

    Thanks for uploading this driver ……..

  • Dong

    3.1 Drivers for 64bit Windows 7 here,

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HMSZSXBX

    I ripped them from the latest Bootcamp update myself. Just run the DPInst.exe (don’t know if its needed but i made sure to run as administrator). If you don’t want to download this file the tutorial on how to rip Mac drivers for Windows (and for future updates to the drivers) can be found here!

    http://georgetasioulis.com/how-to-use-the-apple-magic-mouse-on-your-windows-pc/

    When you run the DPInst.exe file it will SAY 2.1 on the setup somewhere (I noticed this and went HRMM….after ripping the driver from the latest version of 64bit Bootcamp), but unlike the driver in Nakodari’s original post, this will install as 3.0.0.6 as opposed to 3.0.0.5 if you go into the control panel and look for the drivers under uninstall a program you can check this, I’ve tried both and the updated drivers from Bootcamp 3.1 are AWESOME! NO MORE RANDOM LAG EVERY 6 MINUTES!!!

    You probably don’t need to, but I went as far as to uninstall the drivers Nakodari provided in his post, and then remove my Magic Mouse from devices, reboot, and then install the new drivers and pair the mouse again. Worked like a charm.

    Hope this helped someone!

    Is there a way to read the battery percentage on the Magic Mouse under windows 7 64bit? Everything is working great except that when the battery is low, the mouse just stop suddenly and there is no sign the mouse is low on battery. It is not like intermittently pause but you can still use for about 30mins or anything like that. It is kind of annoying when it is used with a laptop and outside suddenly you mouse stop when you needed the most and wish you change out the battery when you left home.

    • dublonn

      what driver did you use? how did you install it? for me doesn’t work any driver, somthing about compatibility message it’s pop-up when I try to force the driver install, after that mouse dosen’t work at all, works only when I rollback, but not scrolling, I have windows xp sp3, lenovo t400.
      Have you any ideea?

  • Ben

    I bought the mouse, and have installed almost every driver I could find for it, I even extracted the driver myself from the bootcamp update on apple’s site. I have windows 7 64bit, and all the mouse does is point and click, no scrolling. I looked at the mouse properties and it isn’t using the drivers I installed, it’s running some generic HID compliant ones and if I tell it to use the ones I extracted, it says to make sure they are made for windows and 64bit, which it is. Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I was terrified when thought that mouse is losing pairing after reboot/standby/hibernation. After hours of searching I found that after each windows logon YOU NEED TO CLICK BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT BUTTONS – THIS TURNES MAGIC MOUSE “ON”, now I’m happy!)

    Although horizontal scroll does not works, but I’m never used it. Zoom does not works as well, but I prefer 100% in 99.9% of cases, in the last 0.01% I’m using CTRL+scroll.

    Hi,

    For the ones who do not have the scrolling working, try to delete the Bluetooth drivers of your computer and install the default ones. It worked for me on my HP Elitebook. Just had to uninstall the Bluetooth drivers HP supplies) and then go to control panel -> find new hardware -> automatic install, and windows will install the stock Bluetooth drivers. Then the scrolling worked for me.
    Good luck.

    But it’s too bad, I cannot take advantage of the touch surface to use the multitouch gestures…
