A485 middle button does not work with Windows 10 1809

Q: A485 middle button does not work with Windows 10 1809

After several clean re-installations of Windows 10 I've found the following:The driver "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver 19.5.19.26" alone does not enable the middle button to work.The middle button works only if the "ThinkPad UltraNav" app is installed from Microsoft Store, as shown in the screenshot below.Sometimes downloading this app from Microsoft Store requires signing in with a Microsoft account, which is unacceptible. Why would I need to create a Microsoft account to get a driver?This app is not yet available in Microsoft Store for Windows 10 1809 as of 11/Oct/2018. A clean installation of Windows 10 1809 has no access to this app.Windows 10 LTSC 1809 does not have Microsoft Store, and therefore has no access to this app.Copying SynapticsIncorporated.SynLenovoTBGDApp_19005.19026.0.0_x64__* in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ from a Windows 10 1803 installation to a fresh installation of Windows 10 1809 works, but why would I need to go through such harassment just to get the middle button work?Suggested solution: Lenovo please add this app to the driver installer, not as a Microsoft Store app.

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.)

I saw an old thread and mods can merge them if necessary.

So here is my problem:
Since few days ago my mid button doesn't work, so I can't open page in new tab with single click (Ctrl + click works and right click->open in new tab works). I don't care about scrolling faster because my mouse has that "fast scrolling" thing, but browser problem drives me crazy.

I have Logitech G500 mouse, and button is working properly, because when I change it to for example minimize window, it does exactly that. Tried another mouse - same problem.
Can anybody help?

Win7 works perfectly on my computer(s) ever since first RC version (or at least almost perfectly )
Updates are off, except for security ones.
I mean... There is one solution - I can always reinstall Win, but maybe something more sophisticated? ^^

Hi all. I ask for any pointers to start looking at this if you can.

This week after some updates from MS in my W10 OS I noticed that clicking the middle button is not working at all. Normally in a browser you can open in a new tab or close a tab, etc.

I have a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 1000. Whet I get this mouse and connected for the first time (windows 8 at the time) some driver was installed and also "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center" was downloaded and installed. Everything worked fine. I upgrade to W10 and no problem with this until earlier this week.

Testing the options in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center, none of them works when I click the middle button. I just download and installed the version from the site. Installed in a regular fashion and in compatible mode for W8. (can you believe this is not for w10?

The scroll function works fine even the Flip scrolling direction.



Later I went to a DELL desktop (W8) and I tried the MS mouse there and works fine. Maybe I have to "tell" W10 to forget his is a MS mouse and to have the default driver. If such, how?

Also, I tried the mouse from that desktop here in windows 10 and works fine. (dell mouse without installing anything myself).

Any ideas are welcome and appreciated,

Best regards and thanks for your time

Hi, I am using the Dell Inspiron 26 7000 series.
I"ve recently encountered a very strange bug. Whenever I turn on my computer, whether from hibernation, shutdown my mouse doesn't work properly.
What happens is this, I'll go to open anything (Firefox, word, excel etc) and suddenly my mouse cursor would jump to another part of the screen. And suddenly, except for that one program that I have opened, i can no longer left/right click anywhere else. sometimes while moving, I would even end up dragging my menu bar and dock it somewhere else on the screen.
I thought it was the mouse, but I bought a brand new out of the box and that one does it too. i uninstalled the trackpad driver, and unplugged the mouse and use the trackpad and it still does it.
I cannot even use the trackpad, because of this issue because it won't recognize my trying to middle click. I can post a video of it later if you like to show yall what's going on.

A:Mouse Middle Button changed it's "show open windows" function

Hello Tomas, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What is the brand and model of your mouse? If we know which one you have, then someone with the same one will be able to help better.


For now, click on the Mouse icon in the Control Panel (icons view) to see if you may have a Settings type tab like in the screenshot below. This will vary depening on what brand you have, and if you installed the mouse's drivers/software.
I have a Logitech mouse, so I get this when I click on my SetPoint Settings tab. From here, I can change what the middle button function will be. This is brand specific though.
Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

I've tried all kinds of Safe mode but it comes to Loggon and mouse and keyboard don't work.

Hi Everyone, I see that some changes were made to the TrackPoint in the newest UltraNav drivers package -- namely, there are no more customized options for stick scrolling with the TrackPoint. Is there any way to reset the middle button to perform a middle click rather than stick scrolling? I see that the Registry options are in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics, but there are so many options! Is there anyone out there who can help me with this? Thanks in advance! Side note: I considered the older UltraNav driver, but that doesn't have the Windows 8 charm bar feature. I also considered the latest driver from the Synaptics website, but it doesn't have the "prioritize for trackpoint" option and I feel that the palm rejection is inferior to that provided by the Lenovo one. Side note #2: My main reason for requesting this is to improve the scrolling experience with my ThinkPad. I've been able to optimize my touchpad scrolling with a modified version of TwoFingerScroll, and really need to do the same with my trackpoint. For the trackpoint in Windows 7, I liked DragToScroll, which I feel provides more sensitive scrolling than the one in the UltraNav driver in most applications.

Hi, hendhess
 
I'm not sure about fixing the issue through the registry, though I did find two threads on this issue that may be able to help you solve the issue. There's this one started by zsero that has some suggestions and the like. There is also this thread which is linked from zsero's. According to some, if every former Synaptics driver is removed and then the new one is installed, the middle-click functionality is restored, though this isn't universal.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

A:How Do I Find A Middle Mouse Button on a Laptop?

Hello KTG and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think a lot will depend on your touchpad software. If you have a Synaptics touchpad you could probably create a tap zone on the touchpad itself that will function as a middle click. Or you could use an AutoHotkey script to do a middle click when the left and right touchpad buttons are clicked at the same time. This article gives more info.

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

I haven't used the Razer driver with my Lachesis for a long while. It certainly won't hurt.


You could also try reseting the mouse to factory defaults (hold the profile button for 10secs). *nb it will remove all macros, assignments, poll rate settings etc

or the whole hog: uninstall Rzaer control panel, driver and do a factory reset.

If it still doesn't work - It could simply be the mouse is on it's way out.

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.

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.

There seems to be a serious design flaw with the middle button on models shared with the T480. The problem is specifically that it is possible to be depressing the button without software reflecting this -- e.g. mmb is depressed and pressure is being applied to trackpoint but the mouse on-screen moves instead of displaying the scroll icon. This is due to the pressure required to make the connection from key to board is more than the pressure required to physically "feel" that the button is depressed. This results in the user having to press the middle mouse button disproportionately hard to ensure that scrolling does not cease. Of course, this in itself is unsatisfactory as it is much more likely to cause hardware damage when disproportionate pressure is required to fully utilize the device. I will be testing this on other models at my nearest vendor at some point, I recommend someone nips this in the bud soon before the wave of warranty claims come flooding in.

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!
