Windows 7: Middle click gives aero-like preview

Middle click gives aero-like preview

When I click the scroll wheel, I get a preview of all open apps, side by side. This prevents me from using Google Sketchup controls and Firefox delete tab.

I can't find this effect described anywhere so I can't change the control. I had a similar effect about a year ago after I installed Vista. Then, I would get that aero carousel thingy like Windows+Tab. It went away on its own or I changed something without knowing it. Now with Windows 7 I got something like it back.

Any ideas on how I can remove this effect? Thanks in advance.

Hello Sailor, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's a bit different depending on your mouse drivers, but you should be able to change the middle button option in the Mouse settings in the Control Panel (icon views) to something called "middle button" or "middle click" instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I plead guilty to tunnel vision. I knew you had the answer as quick as I read it. Windows Compatibility Advisor told me to remove Intellipoint and get the Windows 7 64 bit driver which I did. Apparently the default setting was with the aero setting. Thanks.
