Windows 7: Middle Click Mouse Function Stopped Working (Razer Deathadder)

Middle Click Mouse Function Stopped Working (Razer Deathadder)

Hi there,

As described I my middle click function has stopped working on my mouse, at first I assumed it was a Chrome update and that I could no longer use it to "Open link in new tab" however it seems that it now does absolutely nothing and I am unable to reassign it. I used CAD software (Solidworks) that requires the middle mouse button for me to be able to pivot my view about the pointer on the screen (also a few PC games I play would be much smoother if I could do this).

I have all the latest drivers and firmware installed.

I did find this thread that I thought might help me; Middle Mouse Button , however the screen shot at the bottom shows the Mouse Options on the Control Panel having a lot more option than it does for me, the only options I have are switching the left and right mouse buttons, double-click speed adjustment and ClickLock.

The buttons assignment window that I get using the Razer software gives no more options other than to assign the forwards and backwards buttons ("Windows Button 4" and "Windows Button 5").


Thank you for any help you can give.

I had that problem when I installed "software" for my mouse. I just use the default drivers that Windows installs upon connecting.

Have you recently installed any new software for your mouse or somehow relates to your mouse?

I have since the problem started, in the hope this might solve it, but it didn't actually do anything. I could roll them back too see if there is any difference but as the problem started before this I'm not sure it'll do much. I might try un-installing them completely and see what happens after this.

Interestingly, on restarting after uninstalling, my computer froze at 'Starting Windows' where the 4 balls fly in and turn into the windows logo, after having to just switch it off it prompted for a full system repair! Nothing was found to be wrong but the middle mouse click still doesn't work. I shall write an email to Razer tomorrow, see if they can help me.

Thought I should update as to how this is going; I removed all mouse drivers from the computer and reinstalled the firmware on the mouse then installed the drivers again. This did nothing initially but the function did come back after a couple of days (several restarts). Not a great solution but its something to try I suppose.
