    Donwload and install Magic Prefs (freeware). Then, go to "Clicks & Taps" options and select "Dashboard" on the "One Finger Middle Axis Click". (you will see that you have a lot of options to enable on the magic mouse. Therefore, you need to be wisely with the option you enable, because some gesture are difficult to get done and generates some conflicts)

  • You should try googling "MagicPrefs" It will open up a HUGE amount of features and you can configure them all to your liking. It will enable iPhone gestures, MacBook Pro gestures and more.

  • Also you can look up MagicPref on the apple website or any other part of the web and be able to configure a gesture for dashboard. As default it's a drag and a clickish. You can also have many more gestures for other things such as expose or spaces. Also to learn the gesture there is a live tracking thingymajigy which you can see what your doing on the mouse and how to do the gesture.

  • No. Since the Magic Mouse does not have a scroll ball, you can't access Dashboard that way. But you are free to make a keyboard shortcut or a Hot Corner - all in System Preferences, until more gestures come out for the mouse.
