Install Apple’s Magic Mouse Drivers on Windows 8 with Natural Scrolling and Battery Percentage

Recently I purchased Windows 8 Pro to experience the new features Microsoft is boasting about. After installing it on my laptop, the first prominent change I saw was the new start menu. Then I installed all the programs and software I use whenever I switch on my windows machine and voila! Everything went smooth.

The first impression was very good for me and then I didn’t look back. I restored the back up of Windows 7 to Windows 8 and deleted all older files. Few programs were not installing on it. But after enabling the .Net framework 3.5, there was no more errors. I highly recommend all the users and my friends to switch on the .netframework 3.5 at first place.

Personally I don’t like any touchpad on any machine except on Mac system. For me they reduce the productivity due to the lag and discomfort they produce during their use. To overcome such problems I mostly use a separate mouse and Apple’s magic mouse is one of my favorites.


When you connect wired or wireless (through bluetooth) Apple’s Magic Mouse, Windows 8 automatically detects it and install the necessary drivers. The left and right buttons work perfectly but it doesn’t support the natural scrolling. Moreover, there is no option to check the battery status of the mouse.

To get the natural scrolling we have to install the correct drivers which we can find in the Bootcamp. And to get the battery percentage option, there is no official support available through any Apple channel. For this purpose, we will have to install a third-party tiny utility.

How to Get Natural Scrolling for Magic Mouse on Windows 8?

  • First of all download 7-zip which we will use to extract the Boot Camp files.
  • Download Boot Camp Software Update 3.1 for Window 8 64 bit. If you are using 32-bit version of Windows, use this link.
  • Extract BootCamp_3.1_64bit into a folder. In that folder you’ll see BootCampUpdate64 exe file. Extract it further using 7-zip.
  • Now navigate to BootCampUpdate64 -> BootCamp31ToBootCamp302 -> Binary.MultiTouchMouse_Bin. Copy this file on desktop. Right click on it to rename it. Now add .exe extension at the end of this file. Click on it to install the drivers for Magic Mouse.

  • After the drivers are installed, you can use scrolling on your mouse.

How to Get Magic Mouse Battery Percentage?

In order to get the battery percentage option, I use Magic Mouse Utilities software developed by It is one of the best application for this purpose.


After install it on your Windows machine, you will see a new icon in taskbar. Hover the mouse pointer on small batter or click on it to know how much battery is still left.

    my magic mouse works ok on my PC wth widows 7.
    I was trying to follow the same procedures I have done for my PC on my latest MacBook retina display early 2015 running on Bootcamp, but natural scroll of my magic mouse did not work. Does anybody has any solution on it ?

  6. Riosays:

    I am trying this but do not see the following folder: BootCamp31ToBootCamp303 after extracting anywhere.

  7. Mervi Eskelinensays:

    Works like a charm with Windows 10 too! The path to binaries was BootCamp31ToBootCamp303 instead of BootCamp…302 when I installed the Magic Mouse driver to my Surface 3 Pro.

    Thanks a bunch! :)


    1. Mervi Eskelinensays:

      I meant to tell that original instructions worked for me :)

  8. Amar Ilindrasays:

    Why right click is working sometimes and sometime not? i can’t figure why most of the time right click is acting a left click

    Do you have any solution?

    1. seansays:

      Hey guys,

      I’m using a iMac 2011 System
      The file you need is on the Mac OSX CD under “Bootcamp/Drivers/Apple/InstallWirelessMouse.exe”

      Run this file on the Windows machine and it will install the driver. If you have the mouse already “Paired”, un-pair and Pair again and should be good to go.

      I hope this helps.

      Good luck,

  14. Roberto Soares Toledosays:

    Not working for 32bit…

  16. paulsays:

    Thank you, that helped!

  17. Martinsays:

    How to get Magic Mouse working on 32 bit machine? I think procedure is different from the above one.

  18. Zeeshansays:


    I tried to use the directions given in your post to use magic mouse on Win 8 32 bit but unfortunately could not locate the file that I need to run to install the correct drivers.

    This is because the directory structure of the downloaded file is different from the one that you haver described. Kindly recheck or provide a link to download the needed driver files for Win 8 32 bit.

    Many thanks for all of your continued good work!
