Q: Solved: Middle-Click via pressing both mouse buttons not working

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is 14.0.3.0. I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Solved: Middle-Click via pressing both mouse buttons not working

i "updated' to the older driver and it worked.

I didn't know about this until now. For some reason the middle mouse wheel doesn't seem to work when clicking. The scrolling function still works fine, but the clicking part doesn't. I was playing a game and one of the game's functions required the middle click... Is there any way of fixing this?

I'm on Windows 10 currently.

I got a Microsoft Mouse 100 a couple of years back (2-3) and I have the habit of using middle click to close tabs, open links in new tabs, open multiple Explorer windows from the taskbar and so on.

Last night it all worked fine, I turned off my computer and today I turn it on again and I notice it's not working anymore. I haven't fiddled with any settings at all, it just stops working out of the blue. I tested the mouse on another computer and the middle click doesn't work there, but the mouse on the other computer uses the green connector and my PC doesn't have that and I've lost my green-to-USB thing so I can't test it to see if it's a problem on my PC or just the Microsoft Mouse 100's middle click is just broken and won't work again.

But at this point I'm assuming that it is, although it seems strange to stop working after I shut down and turn back on again (I tried rebooting, connecting to different USB ports, still no luck).

But then again everything else works fine - left click, right click, scroll up/down... That other computer had a similar problem, but the mouse there's middle click started working on its own, so I'm really puzzled what is it.

Hi there,

As described I my middle click function has stopped working on my mouse, at first I assumed it was a Chrome update and that I could no longer use it to "Open link in new tab" however it seems that it now does absolutely nothing and I am unable to reassign it. I used CAD software (Solidworks) that requires the middle mouse button for me to be able to pivot my view about the pointer on the screen (also a few PC games I play would be much smoother if I could do this).

I have all the latest drivers and firmware installed.

I did find this thread that I thought might help me; Middle Mouse Button , however the screen shot at the bottom shows the Mouse Options on the Control Panel having a lot more option than it does for me, the only options I have are switching the left and right mouse buttons, double-click speed adjustment and ClickLock.

The buttons assignment window that I get using the Razer software gives no more options other than to assign the forwards and backwards buttons ("Windows Button 4" and "Windows Button 5").


Thank you for any help you can give.

Hi
This is a common problem I've been having ever since I've started using VoIP programs like mumble and TeamSpeak. My thumb buttons are usually bound and suppressed to push-to-talk and when I press one and right click with my mouse at the same time, my mouse can no longer click on anything, I can still move the cursor around and highlight things but no clicking. Usually to remedy this I would ctrl+alt+del and open and close task manager which would fix it until it happened again.

I just bought new mouse from eBay. It's excellent and all that, but whenever I hold right mouse button and then press middle mouse button, my mouse locks down and unlocks only after I do that again. Is it possible to disable it?

I've never seen any other posts with that same problem so it may be intentionally built-in to that particular mouse to prevent others using your PC when you're away from it. Read it's instructions if you got any with it, it should tell you if it's got a built-in mouse lock, although that feature usually requires additional third-party mouse software to be installed to recognise when the appropriate buttons have been pressed.

If no instructions were supplied, go to it's manufacturer's website to see if it's mentioned there.

Hi. I have a Pavilion Notebook running Windows 10 and it has a clickpad.  How can I replicate a mouse middle button click?  I've gone into settings and there is no way to change the actions of a 3 or 4 finger tap. They are set to launch Cortana and the Action Center, respectively, and there are no dialog boxes to change the settings. The 3 finger flick will only switch between Windows and Task views and the "click" setting only lets you set the size of the right button click zone.  There are not dialog boxes for the 3 finger flick or "click" to let you change anything there, either.  I want to keep the 2 finger tap as the context menu.  Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! KJ

Any Idea what can cause this? and do you know any solutions please??

I have recently installed windows 7 Home premium X64 version, brand new clean installation(installed 2 days back), no antivirus s/w and no viruses or trojans either. Since the new setup, the middle button of my mouse does not respond like it used to(windows xp). Previously it acted like a normal middle mouse click, opening links in a new tab, but Now when I middle click all the windows that are open in the background gets moved to the foreground and pushes the foreground window to the background. The same thing happens whether I middle click in any browser or in another application.
These are the things I have tried :

1) Installed and uninstalled the mouse drivers multiple times.( Correct drivers are intalled)
2) Tried 4 different mice made by Microsoft(Sidewinder X8), logitech( MX performance and another generic USB mouse) and Lazer (lachesis) all with the appropriate driver and I see the issue in all 4 mice. Which concludes that it is a Windows issue.
3) The Middle button is set to middle-click in the control panel mouse settings.
4) Only other point of note is that I see 3 devices under mouse in the device manage :The first 2 are exactly the same, but appears twice and always shows up after a restart regardless of the brand of mouse I am using.

Hello, im trying to figure out, how to enable 3 finger tap for a middle mouse click on my yoga 720 15. There are some solutions out there suggesting editing the registry, but i don't have the entries they name and no other entries, that could be related to the touchpad for that matter. The device manager lists the touchpad simply as "hid-compatible touchpad" with no further information. I even tried installing the synaptics software on the off chance, that that would work, but it said, that no synaptic device was detected.

The wheel of my mouse is essential to the work that I do as most 3D programs allow for a middle click hold function in order to orbit around digital models.

Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

Then i had a hunch (well, it was really more of a last ditch hopeful guess - but it seems to have worked!)
I removed the batteries and let the mouse sit overnight without any battery inside it. When i put batteries back in the next morning, the mouse has been working fine again ever since. Go figure :stickout:
 

A:Left click on Logitech wireless mouse stopped working (Solved)

Good stuff there J. I don't know anything about wireless mice but i am wondering if it "reset" itself. Just a thought and a small one at that.

Okay, I just got a new computer, running an OEM of windows Vista, and I got FF 2.0.0.4. I also use a Logitech G5 Laser mouse, with a thumb button you can set to various tasks in various programs. I like to set this to middle-click in FF, because my mouse wheel does not middle-click well. Now, I got it to middle click, and it opens a new tab, but is also backs my current tab up one page. I have both FF, and my mouse set up like on my old computer. FF is running the Tab Mix Plus extension, and I have SetPoint installed for my mouse, and everything is updated to it's most recent version. I've tweaked options to no end, and this still happens. Anyone have any ideas?

Since a mouse driver update in March 2017 my mouse buttons have stopped working. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution?

RELEVANCY SCORE 64.4

My computer had a problem two days after I bought it on the 5th October where the 'back' button was being pressed, making it impossible to browse. It came and went intermittantly. I changed the keyboard and mouse to my old ones and it didn't go away, so it's not a Hardware issue, I don't think.

Now it's pressing the volume button down on the master volume, and also on Media Player Classic but not Winamp. Norton 360 will not run and Adaware and Spybot cannot find anything. It did pop for PartnerBHO last week but it hasn't for a while since I found a detailed guide with how to remove it from the Registry. I have tried a factory reset, but it occurred again soon after.

I would be extremely grateful for any and all help.
