Hide Status Bar Item

  1. Holding , drag it away from the status bar until you see a ✖️ (cross icon)
  2. Let it go

To recover the item, just open MiddleClick when it's already running

Number of Fingers

  • Want to use 4, 5 or 2 fingers for middleclicking? No trouble. Even 10 is possible.
defaults write com.rouge41.middleClick fingers <int>

Initially, it's 3 fingers to middleclick.

Add Login Item

Make it open automatically when you log in

Just add MiddleClick to your "Login Items".

(it's handy to be done using command line)

osascript -e 'tell application "System Events" to make login item at end with properties {path:"/Applications/MiddleClick.app", hidden:true}'

This fork differs from the base fork in some ways
  • Configurations: Number of Fingers, Click or Tap
    • preferred setting is saved for every user
  • Removed old 32-bit/PowerPc relaunch binary due to it's incompatibility with macOS 10.15 Catalina and greater. Replaced with inline restarting of the app
  • The App will not only restart on waking the Mac, but when a new touch device is added (so it immediately gains middleclicking ability) and when a display is added/reconfigured (for proper click positioning)

Attention! Make sure to:

  1. Quit an old version of MiddleClick
  2. Remove it from the privacy settings
  3. Enable the new version in privacy settings when prompted

The app should be closed when you change the privacy settings, otherwise the Mouse may not be clickable and you may have to killall MiddleClick via terminal or even force restart the Mac.
