Default Testing for "mouse" problem

Have a two(2) buttom mouse.


Left button at times DOES NOT open "links" to either a www. site or it will NOT allow me to "enlarge" a picture when I double click.

Right buttom allows me to use the "Open" link to allow me to either see a www.site and will also allow me to "enlarge" a picture.

It is very convenient to be able to use the "left" click button rather than to take a longer route(time wise) and use the "right" side of the mouse.

Any suggestions on how I can restore the "left" side of the mouse to work? A new mouse ends up doing the same so that I know that it's not the mouse. Can I possibly be missing a "file" that allows the left side to work?

If you are reading this and can offer a solution, I would love to hear it posted here or you can PM me directly. Thanks for your help.

There are several things you can try:
1. Reload the driver software by uninstalling it first and then reboot and install it new.
2. Go into the control panel and open the mouse icon up and see if the buttons will work there in there if the mouse has its own software try and set the buttons.
3. Is it a USB or PS2 type connector? If PS2 try a USB mouse.
Jsut some of the options to try.

Peter; Check the "Settings", "Mouse", "Buttons" tab and verify that the "Switch mouse buttons" isn't checked.

Make sure the driver for your mouse is installed. Some mice (mices?) have non-standard ways of reporting button pushes.

Some browsers allow you to re-define the mouse button functions. Javascript on the web site can be involved here too!
