Tablet functionality (hold click for right click, handwritting imput) with a mouse?

Q: Tablet functionality (hold click for right click, handwritting imput) with a mouse?

I'm wondering it it's possible to use the functionalities of tablet PCs (the Tablet PC Input Panel to write and holding a left click to right click) in a non-tablet PC.

I know, it doesn't sound practical, but my Genius tablet doesn't have an option to use the Tablet PC feature, so I want to know if there's a way to "force" Tablet PC (or a third party program that lets me use the "hold the left click to right click" feature of Tablet PC), even if Windows sees my tablet as just a mouse and not a Tablet PC compatible tablet.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

A:Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

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?
All I know about my mouse is this:
2,4 ghz wireless optical mouse with mini usb

A:Mouse freezes on [Hold RMB + click middle mouse button]

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.

Sony laptop VGN S270P w/XP SP2/2600. 1gb RAM.

In ANY application clicking the left mouse button on any choice, for instance, the Start menu, will not hold or stay chosen. I usually have to resort to holding the button down or multiple attempts of clicking or some chicanery. Right button works fine. This happens across all different brands of mice and on the built in mouse pad, or either USB port or the built-in Bluetooth. I have tried every conceivable permutation of settings via Control Panel-still no change in this defect. I have erased all the USB choices in Device Manager and rebooted so they would reload per Microsoft's procedure. No fix. My drivers seem to be the latest versions of Intel 82801DB/DBM USB 2.0.

I can forward a MSINFO report if necessary.

A really strange behavour happens on my E460: when I use touchpad to left click on a file, it becomes a mouse hold, which means if I move the mouse pointer at this moment, the file is dragged. I can only release the mouse hold by doing a mouse click again. It really makes a lot of trouble as it causes me to accidentally drag some files. Also, when I am using excel, when I click on a cell, due to the mouse click becomes a mouse hold, so when I move the mouse pointer, it begins to highlight a range of cells. I tried to updated the BIOS, and also update to the latest touchpad driver, but none of them solve the problem. I can only solve the problem by removing the touchpad driver, but this cause all the useful features (e.g. scrolling by using 2 fingers) disappear. Also, it causes another problem. When I'm using excel, I can't double click a cell to edit the text inside. I need to triple click to edit, which is very strange. So removing the touchpad driver can solve one problem but bringing two other problems........ Anyone had such kind of issues too? Any way to solve it? Thanks.

Edit: When i tap on the trackpad itself, he problem doesn't occur. when i press the left button below the trackpad, though, it happens. is this a hardware problem?

A:Mouse/Trackpad registering one click as hold/drag

Hello walllable. Welcome to the forum.

Yes it could be. That is a common symptom of a defective touchpad.

Two things can help determine this:
If you can attach a mouse or external touchpad and they work normally.
If you uninstall (remove) the touchpad from Device Manager and then restart and let it reinstall and then reinstall it's driver and the problem persists.

So, every once in a while I come across this strange issue:

1. Aero Peek suddenly stops workingWhen I hover my mouse over windows on the taskbar, the windows preview will flash for a fraction of a second and then vanish, if I'm moving my mouse along the taskbar the window preview will quickly "blink" (it appears and disappears) for as long I'm moving my pointer across that program's area on the taskbar, but nothing even remotely clear enough to see what's in that window. Once I stop moving the mouse, even while in that program's title area on the taskbar, i can't get the "blinking" effect to come back for that specific one unless I move my mouse off of it and then back on.2. Clicking with the scroll wheel to scroll stops workingI like to scroll pages by clicking and holding with the scroll wheel, then I release when I get to where I want to be. But that functionality no longer works, nor does simply clicking once and then moving the mouse to scroll. When I try either of these methods, the small white circle with the arrows which indicate that you've clicked to scroll with the mouse wheel will flash on the screen for an instant then disappear.What I've tried:

Recently (in the last month) my computer has started giving me a double click on a single click of the left button.  This is very irritating.
It does this with both, a USB Logitech Track Man Wheel and with a wireless HID mouse.
I have tried adjusting the settings for the mouse but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
I have AVAST antivirus.  I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malewarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot search and destroy, Super Anti-Spyware and Junkware Removal Tool.
I have updated all of my drivers and used Drive Booster 3.
When I click to close a window on Firefox it will double click and minimize the browser.
This problem is active in all of my programs that I run, not just the browser.
I have Windows Vista, 64 Bit on a Dell Inspiron laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions.
I think this has to be a software problem, but I don't know how to correct it or which software is involved..
Thank you

Just a goofy phenomena that seems to be puzzling me. Each time I single click on a desktop icon, it acts like it was double clicked and opens the file/program. When single clicking on a scroll-bar to the right of a window, it acts like it was double clicked, traveling much further down the screen than expected.

I'm using Windows ME. My mouse is an IBM Scrollpoint II, 3-button mouse with a small scroll pivot-lever. Any assistance to solve this problem will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Fellow friends,

I've been messing around with using and setting up my theme for Windows 7 as well as using a program called registry booster to "fix registry files." This is all that I have done to my pc lately, it runs fine and everything. There is just one thing that has been bothering me that I noticed this week.

The clicking and holding highlighting on the desktop that presents a blue box for whatever square you make, introduced with windows vista and windows 7, it is gone! I do not know where the setting is or what I have done, but I do miss it and I would like some assistance on finding a way to getting this blue highlighting box. I liked it, I miss it, I do not want the old school dotted line box. I have googled and spent a few hours trying to fix this setting, I am hoping for some direction and assistance here!

Thank you for any advice/tips given! I have looked through and out of all settings and personalization, the blue highlighting box shows in folders when I do it, but it does not do it on the desktop like it once used too.

A:Cursor click and hold Highlighting box.

Dont know the answer to your specfic question, but it would be my hunch that the reg fix is not doing you any good. It is my suggestion and that of many others, leave the reg alone. I have never tried to work on my registry since windows 98 and never had a problem. I do not know, but would not be surprised if your current situation is caused by the reg fix.

My wife has a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop running Vista Home Premium 32 bit. She has a logitech wireless mouse. For some reason, and so far only when she has IE7 open and browsing, she will lose all right-click functionality. Not just in IE. She can't right click anywhere at all.

I am assuming it has to do with the context menu handler, and I found the information about what to go through to clear them out. She DOES have Yahoo Toolbar installed, and I believe it adds items to the context menu. I was just curious if anyone else has run into this, and if anyone has some good ideas of how to keep it from happening.

I will be removing the toolbars for the short term, but the problem is, it doesn't happen all the time, so I have no idea whether anything I do has actually fixed the problem.

A reboot always solves it.

I have the same laptop as her, and I have never seen this problem before. The differences for me are that I do not use IE except when absolutely necessary, or for work (my company's software only works with IE), I use Vista Ultimate 32bit, and I don't install any toolbars.

Hi adar,
You use the same wireless mouse? Maybe take her wireless mouse and use it and let's see if the problem moves to your laptop (if so it's the mouse) and if the problem stays with her laptop (then it's something on her laptop). Might want to check the Logitech website for latest mouse driver too.

I was wonderign if there was a way so that, instead of a single-click action launching an application through a pinned taskbar icon, it can be double click. I notice that I try to keep apps off the pinned menu because I often accidentally click an icon that i wasn't supposed to, but a double click would eliminate that since double-clicking active applications does nothing. Is there a registry setting or custom feature I'm missing that can enable this?

A:double click functionality on pinned taskbar icons

Why not just make everything single click by turning on single click functionality in "folder options." You'll still get asked for confirmation for anything mildly dangerous such as "do you really want to send XYZ to the recycle bin."

Hi,

I'm six hours into Windows 7 on my new Sony Vaio, which is proving... interesting.

One of the taskbar features I used with XP many times every day -- the capacity to select multiple windows in the taskbar by holding down the Control key -- is missing, and I cannot find an equivalent methodology. The Win-Key+Arrow-Keys work for the vertical splitting of two programs. But I don't necessarily want to arrange vertically, or arrange at all (e.g. I may want to select and close three of my eight open windows, or arrange them horizontally). I don't work with "groups" of windows.

I've searched everywhere and tried two softwares (Classic Start Menu and Windows 7 Taskbar Tweaker, both freeware and not without their merit) without any luck.

This feature is so elementary to the way I work that it's a "deal breaker" if not possible on Win 7.

Can anyone help, please?!

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

A:Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - tablet battery is empty

Please check your BIOS version.
There is a new BIOS v1.7 which solves the issue with the keyboard dock battery charging status which was not recognized by Window system correctly.

You should also know that the battery
#1 refers to battery inside the tablet and the battery
#2 refers to battery inside the keyboard dock.
The battery status can be checked in the Windows Mobility Centre window.

When you use the tablet with the keyboard dock, the second battery pack (battery inside the keyboard dock) is the first source to provide power! It happens also that the battery could be deeply discharged
In such case it?s necessary to keep the tablet and keyboard dock charging for at least 24 hours.
The tablet must be connected to AC adaptor and docked to the keyboard dock.

At this time we are trying a standard corded Microsoft Mouse to see if that solves his issue. I will post back in a few days if that resolves the issue.

Hello,

I want to preface by saying this is now the second time (and second account - will get to that later) that this has happened.

This morning, I go to wake up my computer from sleep (Windows 10, now with Anniversary update) and it seemingly crashes and restarts. When I go sign back in, the mouse works fine. Once loaded up the mouse can move around, but when I click on anything, no clicks register. The Mouse is a Logitech G502 Spectrum attached to the USB pass-through of a Corsair Strafe. I go attach it to another USB port (on the front of my PC tower) and once again the mouse moves, but I still cannot click anything. Long story short, I go to remove mouse drivers and restart. Same thing - i can use and click mouse on log in screen but not logged in. Oh, I also tried another mouse with same results (another Logitech)

I did the same thing I did last time - I created several other user accounts and logged into my emergency one. The mouse clicks are now registered albeit without all my stuff in the right places. I want to be able to access this account again only being able to click my mouse on stuff. My accounts don't have a Microsoft email attached to them, they are local accounts - personal preference.

This happened once before (but before the Anniversary Update). This account that doesn't work on is a replacement account for the now deleted main account I had that had the same problem. I am now typing this on a 3rd account with mouse control and dread having to re-do... Read more

Using a mouse the right click behaves as I would expect it.  Using the touch pad, right and left click perform the same function. 
I am new user to both lap tops and Win 10.  Is there a problem with my new Inspiron 11 3000 or with me?

My symptoms are these:
right click hangs on all files but not folders for about 30-40 seconds then works fine for a few moments but once I click away or do anything else the problem comes back
using the keyboard to copy hangs and then once the computer "unfreezes" copy/paste with keyboard works fine
double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs
Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

What I have tried so far:
Running Adaware and AVG to determine if spyware/malware installed
using shellview to disable processes - no results
cleaned temp files and defragmented drives
uninstalled hp easy button keyboard software

Problem does not occur in safe mode.

I'd appreciate it if anyone can help solve this problem.

When I left click or right click on an MP4 file, Windows Explorer encounters a problem and needs to close.
Explorer closes and restarts. If the MP4 was left clicked, Real Player will start and play the file. If the MP4 was right clicked, right click menu will open and error window will open immediately after.

The error report shows:
Error signature
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.5512 ModName: quicktime.qts
ModVer: 5.0.2.15 Offset: 002d12b5

This problem started today, after I tried to copy a folder containing MP4 files while viewing one of the MP4 files in the folder. Yeah, I know....I remain my own worst enemy.

Thanks

Jim

Hello, Would someone please be able to help me. I recently got my computer back after being repaired and it was on a small resoultion under the 1000's. I bought a new screen to go with it and just turned it on. I went to display settings and changed resoultion to 1920x1080 and now its just a big blank stretched wallpaper with no icons, task menu/bar or start menu. I also can't click or right click thus I have no way to change this back. I've tried going into normal safe mode and display settings changed it to the smallest, restarted the computer and its doing the exact same thing. I know no fixes and would really appreciate all the help I can get.

A:Changed Resoultion, Icons, Taskbar, Start menu All gone. Can't Click or right click

Follow the below steps:
Press CTRL+Alt+delete together and hit enter
Click on File and New Task (Run)
Type "Control" without any quotes. This will open control panel Window, from where you can easily get to display settings options and change your PC resolution back to it's initial state.

Good Luck.
Regards,
Oliver

I have recently noticed some odd behavior in my computer, for some reason when I open My Computer and double click on a hard drive (I have 3) it will not open the drive. However I can still right-click and choose Explore to get around it.

At first I thought that this was a virus but after 3 scans with SpyBot I am still clean. Any ideas? It's not critical but I do find it odd.

A:[SOLVED] Baffled again, double-click does not open hard drives but right click will

What happens when you double click? Nothing, or Search opens, or a command prompt, or something else?

I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this..My computer caught a virus and screwed up the admin account. I managed to get that bug removed. Since then, I have problems when I click the results from search engines. When I click search results, I get sent to different sites. I typically use Google Chrome but it's happened on Bing as well.

A:Left click brings up right click context menu on desktop

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

System specifications would help, especially what type of mouse you've got, but at a guess I'd say there's something not right with your mouse settings.

Can anyone please help me figure out the solution to this? My Dell 14R 5437's touchpad isn't properly working lately. It's right-click button and double-tap to right click function isn't working as intended; the left-click button and single-tap to left click function is working ok. When plugging an external mouse, however, I can right click as normal.
I tried reinstalling the driver from the Dell website and it's still not working properly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Dell Latitude - XPsp3

This is a problem with the built in mouse pad. I left click something like the desktop and the options menu comes up as though it was a right click. It's not a software setting, as I've checked them all, and I've reinstalled XP.

The only (temporary) fix I can apply is to plug in a usb mouse. Then the touchpad mouse will act appropriately. But it reverts back to this issue upon reboot.

Should I update the BIOS?

thanks
