X230 Middle Button and Right Button both action "scrolling" and opening "context menu"

Q: X230 Middle Button and Right Button both action "scrolling" and opening "context menu"

Hi Everyone, A couple days ago I noticed that my middle mouse button which I use for scrolling started to activate the Context Menu (aka anytime you right-click, a menu pops up). Then I noticed that my right-button will also activate scrolling as well. Is this a hardware issue? I've already tried reinstalling the drivers and played around with the settings to no avail! Anyone experience a similar issue? Cheers,

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.)

When I go to Settings and set the middle button to scrolling it works fine, but when I restart the laptop it has been deactivated and must be set again.

For years this icon, called "scrolling icon", has appeared on the middle-button click on TrackPad buttons ? providing for a useful visual feedback:  For some reason, this has been removed on X1 Extreme Synaptics driver. Until November 2018 I have successfully managed to install Synaptics 19.3.4.201 on X1 Extreme so as to get a proper Control Panel management for Synaptics instead of an awkward Windows Universal App AND a scrolling icon working, too. This driver 19.3.x.x (not only 201, but all other consequitve version) has stopped working after certain BIOS and Synaptics Firmware upgrade: installing 19.3.x.x instead of 19.5.19.33 gives TrackPoint and TouchPad halt since November 2018. There is a registry key which allows to turn OFF the scrolling icon on drivers 19.3.x.x: https://superuser.com/questions/473325/disable-scrolling-icon . It does NOT help to turn it ON for 19.5.x.x. Any help on either getting the icon back or installing the 19.3.x.x drivers would be awesome. The latter would be more preferrable as I have trying out older drivers in a hope of getting rid of Trackpoint drift ? unsucessfully and only until they've broken 19.3.x.x drivers to work on X1 Extreme.

Hi Lenovo, Currently the Trackpoint's middle button can only do either scrolling or middle mouse button click in Windows. This behavior can be set in lenovo vantage or mouse settings. Could you provide option to enable both scrolling and middle mouse click functions at same time? In linux this is already supported out of the box for a long time. The only workaround in windows is by using third party software called TPMiddle, but this software only works with Synaptics trackpoint, it doesn't work with Elan or ALPS trackpoint.

Yes, there was a post several years ago describing this same issue which was supposedly fixed with an update of the Synaptics driver.  However, I am seeing this issue again on my X270 Windows 10 x64 Pro with latest driver version 19.3.4.219. If I set the mouse pointer size to something larger than default "1" it stays at the larger size until I use the trackpoint middle button to scroll.  the pointer then shrinks back down to size "1".  Just as with the previous report of this issue if I set the middle button function to "click" rather than "scroll" the pointer retains its larger size.  I constantly use trackpoint scrolling so that is not really a fix for me. Has anyone else seen this issue recently and perhaps found a fix that allows continued use of trackpoint scrolling with a larger pointer? Thanks.

A:T460s: Middle button keeps opening Cortana

Hi S I have the exact same problem. I also ordered a T460s and recieved it yesterday. The middle mouse button above the track pad pops up Cortana each time you press it. I havent spent much time on trying to resolve it but will certainly let you know if i manage it. I found this a moment ago so will try the steps here. Also something about changing the 3 finger click in the synaptics settings screen (settings>touchpad settings>advanced/Other Settings) and saving it to a synaptics profile. http://forums.windowscentral.com/cortana/370874-cortana-windows-10-keeps-popping-up.html#post_319795... I will have a go after work and let you know how i get on. Have you had any joy? Thanks Jack

Is there a way to stop the middle mouse button (i.e. click of the scroll wheel) from opening Cortana/search?

Things I've tried:

1. Searched Google. No useful results. The closest I found was that Windows 10 may be confusing the click of the middle mouse button as the 3-finger tap on the touchpad - which opens Cortana/search by the default. But I don't have a touch pad. I have the Toshiba PX30T (Toshiba Qosmio PX30t 23 inch Touchscreen All-in-One PC - Black/Silver (Intel Core i3 3120M 2.5GHz Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8 64-Bit): Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories).

2. Tried re-configuring the middle mouse button in (a) Windows 10 Settings > Devices > Mouse & touchpad, (b) Control Panel > Mouse, and (c) my desktop's manufacturer's System Settings utility application (upgraded just now from their website). Interestingly, none of those three configuration tools had any control setting for the middle mouse button.

It is obvious that Windows 10 doesn't "fully" support the wireless mouse that comes with my PC.

My question then is...

Is there a way to "unbind" the middle mouse button from opening Cortana/search? For example, via the Registry Editor - maybe?

Thanks for any replies!

I'm setting up XP Pro_SP3 on a new desktop.
(I might consider Vista when Microsoft releases

My new desktop is used by me only, so I've
got all administrative rights.

When I right click the start button there are
four context menu options listed for viewing
the start menu folders and shortcuts in a window;
open, explore, open all users, and explore all users.

I tried viewing the start menu every which way I
could think of. No matter what I do, I can't get a
window that shows all the folders and shortcuts.
I've got the system set to show all hidden files,
folders, and extensions. (I realize this option has
nothing to do with the start menu.)

Hi Solaris !

What exact folder or shortcut do you want to see ? Items like run, help and support, search, settings and documents don't correspond to an actual folder. The folders and shortcuts under programs will be scattered over the different users (all users, administrator, default user and your_user_name). Browse the c:\documents and settings folder to see all the users.

How to Customize the Start Button right click context menu?

Hi,
I use a few different files on a very regular basis. As an example, I have an Excel file that starts out as a template which I then modify to fit the situation. I start by navigating to the location of the "template" (via a shortcut to make it quicker), copying the file and then navigating to the sub directory where I need to copy the file. It's not a huge issue, but I'd love to simply navigate to the sub directory, right click my mouse to bring up the context menu and then click on a button to copy the file to the current sub directory I'm in.

I'm very close, but need help tweaking what I have. I created a bat file that I call from the Context menu (see below for the path I used). It works great, the only problem is that I have to click on a directory for my context button to come up. When I click on it copies my file, not into the directly I've selected, but into the current directory I'm in. This is actually good, because I'd like to be in the directory and then copy the file. The problem arises when I am in a directory that doesn't have a sub directory. In this case I have no directory to right click on and thus, I can't get my menu button to come up. I could go up one directory, click on the one I "really" want to work on, paste my file and then move the file, but I'm sure there is a better way.

Is there a location in registry where I can create a key that will come up when I right click my mouse and bring up the context menu... Read more

A:How to add a button to the context menu to copy a file to a directory

Save the files as isItaLink.bat in a folder you will be keeping.

Step 2:
Create AddisLink.reg as follows:

Click Start, type notepad and press Enter.
Copy and paste the following RED lines into the Notepad window:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\isLink]
@="Is This a Link"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\isLink\command]
@="\"C:\\xxxxxxxx\\isItaLink.bat\" \"%1\""

Note: Change xxxxxxxx to the folder you put isItaLink.bat in.

Step 3:
Merge AddisLink.reg into you registry by double clicking on it or right clicking and select Merge.

To use, open Windows Explorer and navigate to the file you are interested in,
Right click on it and select Is This a Link.

A Command Prompt window will open with the results.

I have been unable to come up with a rhyme or reason to this problem.
For some reason the Windows 8.1 start button will no longer respond to a right-click.  The context menu will not come up.  You can see that the active window is no longer active because the border color changes.  The start button works as
expected when left-clicking it.
I first noticed this on a brand new Windows 8 machine that I upgraded to Windows 8.1.  The problem occurred while I was messing with trying to customize the default user profile.  The next time I logged in with a new user account the start button
was broke.  The system I was using was stripped down.  It had NO additional software on it except the drivers and necessary associated applications, and all available Windows updates were installed.  I chaulked it up to something I messed up.
Next, I reformatted 20 lab computers with Windows 8.1 Pro and joined them to a Server 2003 domain.  Users have roaming profiles and folder redirection policies.  The folder redirection policies redirect AppData, Documents, and Desktop to a folder
on the server and the contents of these folders are shared between Windows XP and Windows 8.1.  The roaming profiles are unique and new.  Thus far all users have only logged on to Windows XP so they have the version 1 profile and when they logon
to the Windows 8.1 box a new .v2 profile folder is created.

A:Problems with new start button right-click context menu

I was able to get mine to work after I copied the local Administrator WinX directory to my profile and then restarted the computer (log out and then back in probably would have worked as well).  The WinX directory in the Admin profile is located
here:  C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX
Though, I'm unsure of why this happened in the first place.  Though, in my organization we use a network Default User profile that was created in Win 7.  So, maybe logging into this Win 8.1 computer used that Default Profile and when it upgraded
it to the Win 8.1 format it didn't configure the right click menu correctly.

Hi, maiki
 
Yes, there is a sleep button. Depending on the behavior of your Fn keys, then you will either press Fn + F4 or simply F4 to put the machine to sleep. I would try to create a new power plan and have the same settings to see if you can get the proper power button behavior.
 
Hope it helps,

Recently I've began to experience spurious activations of the middle button. On Linux this manifests as the text in my clipboard being pasted in whatever I'm currently working on. It seems to be related to applying pressure around the trackpad (i.e. either the large areas to the left and right), but more specifically any twisting of the frame (i.e. trying to move the left side of the laptop down and the right side of the laptop up, or vice versa). It is very sensitive to this when being used on my lap, though it also occurs when the laptop is sitting on a desk. When the issue is present, it becomes painful to do anything on the computer, since random bits of text keep getting pasted into whatever I'm working on. I will probably end up having to disable the middle button in software to make the computer usable again. I can't see any particles in the openings around the middle button, and there hasn't been any water damage. I'd be interested in seeing if anyone else has this issue, or if anyone can suggest any possible fixes.

Is it by any means possible that the premium segment XPS15 9560 Kaby Lake does not feature an out of the box possibility to perform a middle mouse button click with its touchpad?
Are you serious DELL?

Currently my TrackPoint middle button does scrolling as desired but when I release it, it pops up a right-click menu.  I can't figure out how to turn off the right-click functionality.  Any ideas? I believe I have fully explored the entire Mouse properties dialog from Control Panel, including the advanced one with the special TrackPoint options.  I tried any option that looked even vaguely related, and nothing helped. Thanks in advance!

When I play Far Cry 3 and try to aim or throw explosives, my field of view/crosshair to the left and down. Holding shift and clicking makes the crosshair move less... I tried installing the latest driver for my mouse, my graphics card but nothing changed. I don't know what could possibly be the reason for this. I would appreciate help very much.

Hi, can anyone help me to disable the button that is between the G H and B keys on the keyboard permanently ?  Every time I type I somehow manage to bump this button and send my cursor somewhere up or down the page...
Thanks for your help in advance

Hi  Planner,
Welcome to the Community. Please add your system model and operating system when posting on the Community. To disable the track stick, click on start, control panel, mouse, wait for the Dell touchpad image to appear and click on the touchpad image, click on the option Pointing stick or device select, you should have an option to disable it there.
Thank you
Royan

Hey there. Recently I reinstalled the Sims 2 and many expansion packs on my computer. I have HP Pavilion Entertainment PC with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit operating system. I connected the mouse I had bought and realized it wasn't working. The middle mouse button works fine outside of the sims 2 games. But when I get to the neighborhood and even the houses, I can't use it at all. It's like it just shuts off. The rest of the mouse works perfectly fine. I've read some things about Logitech mouses doing this but mine is an HP Compfort mouse so I can't do what they say to fix it. I've tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions? If I've left anything out I'll answer your questions.

You should try updating your drivers.

I dont know whether this post belongs in hardware or software section but here goes...

When I use the laptop, the most I miss is the middle mouse button. The one which makes me open webpages in a new tabs while using firefox in a jiffy. Is there anyway I can get that function in a laptop? Some program which can sense some combination of keystrokes as the middle button Eg: Ctrl+Left button on the touchpad?

(I do have a USB mouse which I do connect to the laptop at home, but at work it is a pain without it.)

Any ideas?
 

A:Middle mouse button functionality in a laptop

I searched a lot for the answer to this problem and at last I figured it out.

You have the middle mouse button and more in your laptop. You must have to unlock all of these features. Go to control panel and then select mouse. Here go to the last option on the left "device settings". Then inside the device settings you will see "settings". Now explore all the options and you will see that you can do so many things with your touchpad including th middle mouse function

Since I booted up my T470 today, when I press ?, it sends a middle mouse button click. When I press left mouse button directly under the spacebar, it sends nothing. This behavior persists with Live CDs in the Lenovo setup/BIOS menu. Has anyone else experienced this rather curious behavior?

Basically.
I have a new mouse.
The middle button will only scross and tilt.
And wont press.
Like in games where you can move the screen.
And on Internet Explorer where you can click the wheel in and make a new tab appear, or delete one.
It's just really annoying having to do things the long way. Hope you can help.
Thanks.

With my old computer and mouse, I used to be able to use the middle button for various tasks susch as opening a link in another tab, rotating the camera in games etc and i have got very used to this.

I recently purchased a Dell XPS One and am using the mouse which came with it which, according to Device Manager, is the Logitech HID-compliant Cordless Mouse.
I am running Vista Home Premium x32, and i am unable to use the middle button for this. Instead, in firefox, it is a sort of zoom function. Yesterday it started working - i don't know why - but today it has failed again and is back to the zoom function.

If i hold down the CTRL button and left click, this is the same as middle button should be, so is there any way i can swap these functions around?

I don't know if this is a problem with the mouse or with vista, or with me not finding some setting.

If it helps, my mouse driver is version 4.0.101.0. which i think is up to date.

Hey folks, The middle button for trackpoint doesn't work. All drivers are up to date. Middle button is enabled for scrolling, not clicking. Middle button works when switched over for clicking. It just randomly stopped working last week, but it works when I switch it over to clicking in the settings tool. Any ideas? Thanks
