My MS Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 has detents in the scroll wheel operation which cause the scroll to jump two or three lines with every use. However, my MS Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 has a smooth continuous scroll wheel operation which is much preferred. Both mice are wired USB devices.

Is it possible to change the Explorer Mouse to scroll continuously without detents or do I have to just give up and buy the other mouse? I recall reading somewhere that this detent could be changed or removed or maybe I read wrongly.

I know, us Netscape users are a vanishing species, but....

Bought a new MS Intellimouse Explorer Wireless mouse with Tilt/Scroll Wheel. Very nice, except the scroll wheel magnifies instead of scrolls but ONLY in Netscape (I'm using Netscape 7.1). I was told elsewhere that someone had this problem with IE and fixed it by installing the Intellimouse v. 4 software (current version is v. 5), but that didn't make any difference.

Can ANYONE help???

TIA

I know that this is a known issue (unresolved as far as I know) with Microsoft, but Intellimouse Explorer forward and back buttons do not work in Netscape 4.76. My OS is ME. Does anyone else have this problem and any suggestions. Yes, I have downloaded and installed the most recent drivers.

Are you sure that the navigator window is focused. Try clicking on the Navigator window and then try using the forward/back buttons.

I'm having trouble getting all the buttons for the intellimouse explorer to work with the scroll. I'm running Gentoo 1.4rc1. I can get the scroll to work when I set ' ZAxisMapping "4 5" ' but the extra buttons won't work. If I set ZAxisMapping "6 7" in my XF86Config file, the scroll in apps like Mozilla won't work. Is there any way to get this working as well as all the buttons?

Hi,

I bought Intellimouse optical yesterday. I installed the software. I prefer using Netcape
rather then the explorer. My mouse doesn't work that has the back and the forward on my
mouse. I clicked on explorer and It works. Which version of Netscape will I have to use for the
back and forward?

Thanks a lot,
 

A:Microsoft Intellimouse optical problem?

I have a Wireless Intellimous Explorer and all 5 buttons work in every program that uses a back function. A little advice: I don't use the forward button much, but do use the back. I changed the forward button to function as the close button... because I use that one a lot... works great. Back to your mouse... it is possible it doesn't work with netscape because microsoft made it... and you know how microsoft is. It really should work though, even if you are using netscape. Try upgrading to the latest version and maybe even upgrade your intellimouse software, if there is an upgrade. Also, make sure you have the correct mouse selected in the settings of your software. If you have the wrong one selected the regular left and right buttons should work without software because they are basic, standard functions.

I have been using this mouse for about a year now. I was just surfing on the net today when the mouse froze and would not work (light at the bottom did not light up like usual). I usually connect it to the computer with a PS/2 converter and decided to unplug it from the converter and just plug it in the computer, using its original USB plug and it worked.

However after every about 15 minutes it stops working, every 15minutes I would need to unplug the mouse from the USB port and reconnect again. I have tried my other USB ports, all did the same. Everytime it disconnects on the right bottom it would pop up a message saying "Unrecognizable tool connected" something along those lines however when I do reconnect it it'll recognize it sayin the mouse model.

I was wondering is there a problem with the mouse or is it the computer? Anyway I can "fix" this problem? I'm broke at the moment haha and have no money therefore can't get a new mouse at the moment and this problem is annoying me.

I am using a Dell Dimension E510 that I upgraded to 3 Gb of memory and then upgraded from XP Media Center to Vista Home Premium. I'm having a problem with my wireless mouse. I purchased and used (without a problem on XP) a Microsoft Elite Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Since I upgraded to Vista, I have been having problems with the mouse. When I opened an internet page, the second I moved the cursor out of the toolbar and into the page, the page would begin jumping and flickering up and down. Twice now I've deleted the mouse & keyboard problem and re-installed them, and they seem to work for a while. I finally figured out yesterday that this occurred after I ran that IOBIT Windows Cleaner free program so I deleted that program, deleted the Microsoft bluetooth program and then re-installed the Intellitype and Intellimouse programs (6.1) and everything seemed to be working well. This morning, I can't get the mouse to work at all. The system reads the keyboard OK (I'm typing on it right now) and it tells me that the mouse batteries are good so I believe that it sees the mouse, but the cursor will not move with the mouse. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks,

A:Intellimouse Explorer addit. buttons problem

I have the same mouse and have never had any trouble in NT 4 with it.

Well, wait - I had one problem. I turned off the mouse icon in the system tray and my settings (double click for pusing the wheel in) stopped working. Do you have the icon turned on?

You say "after a while"... what does that mean? Are you sure it is based on time? It is more likely a software issue - you are running something else that is killing the mouse driver. You can test this by booting up and not doing anything - just let the machine sit for a few hours.

Just received my yoga and downgraded to windows 7, even with the vertical scroll set to one line, the trackpoint is very sensitive. Also there is a initial lag with the trackpoint scroll, if I'm using the trackpoint for the first after a webpage turn, the first light touch is not registered, you have move the trackpoint very hard, which caused the page to move very fast down the page. Overall using the trackpoint on the yoga 460 (maybe with W10, it is different), has been an aweful experience so far, is there a patch or update that I didn't know about? Btw, I have Elan pointing device installed, I can not find Ultranav anymore, why is that? Elan pointing device seem to have less function than Ultranav.

An unusual problem has popped up in my browser (IE6 with Windows XP). Scroll bars within a web site have become erratic (the browser scroll bar functions properly). Clicking the down arrow moves the slide indicator to the bottom of the slide bar rather than incremental movements. Clicking within the slide bar gives the same results. Clicking the up arrow causes the slide to jump up and then fall back to the bottom. I can put the cursor in the text and move incrementally with the keyboard arrows but that is cumbersome when trying to read or edit long pages of text or HTML. Any ideas for correcting this issue?

Well I have been useing win 7 for a while now. Both 32 and 64bit versions and havent had any real problems. So my girlfriend got a Toshiba satellite m305-s4910 and it came with vista. After playing with if for a few hours she decided she wanted win 7 also(x64). So we installed it and the scroll on her scroll pad did not work. So i downloaded the drivers from Toshiba's website and it seemed to fix it.
But twice now it would just stop working and you would have to reboot to get the scroll to work. Any ideas? It is build 7100.

A:Scroll pad problem

I have a similar problem. I upgraded my Sony Vaio from Vista to W7 Pro. Generally, the Touchpad works, but right side finger scroll function won't work. I called Sony and they said they don't support W7. On my own, I uninstalled and reinstalled the Alps Pointing Driver software from Sony's website and rebooted. But nothing is different. When I go to Programs, I don't even see the Alps Pointer software as a program (so it seems like it didn't really install or the computer isn't recognizing it?). When I did the driver download from Sony's driver support website, they didn't have a W7 version of the Alps Pointing Software...so the version I downloaded was the Vista version. Bottom line: I am stuck, and scroll is still not working, although the touchpad seems to otherwise be working , including tapping.

Hey, i've recently been trying to play Age of Empires 2 on my XP computer, but whenever i start a game, the screen will scroll constantly up to the top right, making it unplayable.

It seems to be a common problem with newer graphics cards and drivers but i can't find any real solution to get around it without installing ancient drivers (which really isn't an option since, that in itself causes more problems.

So does anyone know of a work around fix? Maybe a user made patch that will stop it scrolling up constantly? Any help would be great because i really want to play this game again.

Hey roxichp, HP never tested your model for Windows 10 and doesn't guarantee drivers for it.  If the scroll feature for the touchpad doesn't work in Windows 10 but did work in Windows 7/8 then it's likely that the driver you have installed is too generic for the specific touchpad on your computer. So which driver do you haver installed?  Did you try right-clicking and updating to the latest driver in Device Manager?  Did you try installing the Windows 8 driver from the hp download page for your model? -wes

I recently installed Netscape 6 because I had developed an error in my Netscape 4.6 version and figured I might as well "upgrade" instead of just re-installing 4.6. I think I might have made a BIG mistake. Are there a lot of problems with Netscape 6 or what? My main concern is that the mouse scroll wheel no longer works with N6. I tried downloading the newest MouseWorks software and re-installing to no avail. The scroll works fine with IE and the old version of 4.6 which I still have installed. I've sent Netscape a question concerning this and am still waiting for a response from them...... Any other suggestions or should I just scrap Netscape 6? Anyone else using Netscape 6 with a scroll wheel working? If so, maybe I'll re-install N6. There's no way I surfing without a scroll wheel. What do you think? Thanks

I'm hoping someone can help resolve a scrolling issue.

One of our PC's runs Vista Home and the basic corded mouse gave up the ghost last week. Right button ceased working. OK. I bought a new corded HP mouse [don't like cordless accessories], uninstalled the old mouse driver, re-booted, installed the driver software and connected mouse. Simple.

My son has been using it a few days tells me the scroll wheel won't work on Firerfox web pages nor on his favourite game, Roller Coaster Tycoon. It works fine on Chrome, IE and Word documents etc.

I googled and found scrolling problems aren't uncommon on Firefox but didn't find a solution. Today I uninstalled the mouse, re-installed and just used the default Microsoft driver - still the same. Mouse settings for buttons etc are all set at default. Also tried using the driver update function but supplied driver is current version.

I'm puzzled but there is probably an easy solution I'm unaware of.

Many thanks.
 

A:Mouse scroll wheel problem

This might sound stupid but try this for troubleshooting reasons: Open Firefox to any page such as this forum. Now resize the firefox window so that part of the desktop shows. Click once on any open portion of the desktop. Nothing should happen. Now try using the wheel to scroll down the web page. Again, nothing should happen. Now try clicking on a blank area on the firefox web page. Any area without an ad or link should do. Now try scrolling down. Does it scroll? If so, theres nothing wrong with your mouse. If you still can't get the scroll wheel to work, then go to control panel. In there should be a mouse icon. Open it and tell me if there is a tab that says "wheel"

Hi
I need some kind help from you people. I hope you will help me if the issue is already known.

I got a laptop from university with windows 8.1 Pro installed in it. On a general scale, i am not a windows 8 or 8.1 fan at all, i was more comfortable with 7. However, i am using it.
i have this strange issue with windows 8.1 explorer scroll bar. This specially happens in pictures folder. They are set to show thumbnails of images as default settings. When i click the wallpaper and right click to set it as desktop background, it sets it but folder scroll bar jumps to top of folder along with the images. Let me explain a bit more:
Let's say i am at the middle of wallpaper folder, or at the bottom, i click some image and set it to desktop background, after the image is set as desktop background, the explorer scroll bar AND images jump to the top of folder (to the very first row of images in the same folder)

I have not messed with any setting of mouse wheel or anything else. I also have windows 7 installed, and i have no such issue with it. Can someone please let me know what is this problem due to, and what is the solution?

So, if anyone can please help me out, i shall be very thankful as i am frustrated with this problem.

Click View then Options at far right then click on Change folder and search options.

See if Automatically expand to current folder is checked or unchecked. Whichever it is, try it the other way.

Hi everyone.

Hope y'all doing good today.

I have an annoying problem which I have no idea how to fix.

When I hover my mouse cursor over icons on my task bar the font of the text is huge. This also applies to text in some some of windows title bars but not all. It's quite sporadic. Also some of the scroll bars have doubled in size.

I have not changed any of the font or appearance settings. It seems to have just suddenly changed automatically.

I have attached a screen shot.

Does anyone know what has happened and how I can fix it?

Many thanks in advance.

Andrew

Recently my mouse has begun to act weird. Whenever im in a browser, opera, firefox, IE, and i scroll in the page with the mouse, it goes back a page in the browser. I've looked everywhere and can't find any option in my mouse properties that would allow me too change this. Please, this is one of the most annoying things that has ever happened to my computer. Any help would be appreciated.-BenEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hello everyone, i've got a problem with my Logitech M510. When a user A is logged, user B can't use extra buttons and scroll wheel. When user A get unlogged, user B recover the mouse fully functionnal. No solution for me, latest drivers installed many many times, not solved. I've got a MS Sidewinder X4 Keyb, but extra buttons doesn't work at anytime, it seems it's a MS W8 problem. Thanks

Hello,

So, I bought, installed, and set up Windows 7, installed all my old programs and drivers.
So, on certain long pages containing many links such as forum topics (way bigger than the ones here though), when I hold down the scroll wheel, and move my mouse down (to auto scroll quickly downward), normally it goes all the way down. But that was on XP, now, in windows 7, sometimes, very often, the scroll will get stuck (5-10 in one page) when i try to auto scroll down. Every few lines, the auto scroll would just lock up and stop, so I would have to release the scroll wheel, and press the scroll wheel again, but it would again, get stuck after a few lines. Ive never had this problem with XP so I assumed it was something with Windows 7, I have a 3.2ghz quad core, 4 gb of ram, and an ATI 5870, so i doubt my computer it stopping the page from auto scrolling because it cant load the page fast enough.
Is there a way to fix that?

2nd and unrelated problem...lets say I have 5 tabs on firefox open, I go to the 2nd tab, and press the scroll wheel on a link to open a new tab with that link loading inside of it, normally, on XP, the tab would go to the end of the 5 tabs, and become my 6th tab. But on windows 7 when I do that, it would become my 3rd tab, inserting itself right after my tab I was on, instead of at the end of my original tabs.
Is there a way I can change it back to the way it worked in XP?

Thats about it
Thanks

I really need your expert valuable help.
All of a sudden, my MS Intellemouse (wireless) does not scroll smoothly. It jumps in a jerky motion when scrolling. Have changed the batteries.
In the Control Panel; Display Settings are set at 1024X768. The mouse is set for slow scroll (have tried faster settings) the Enable accelerated scrolling and Vertical scrolling are both checked.
Am running XP Pro with plenty of RAM.
Thanks
