Windows 7: can you modify the behavior of an on-screen MS Mouse selection ?

can you modify the behavior of an on-screen MS Mouse selection ?

Awhile back I had to replace my mouse on my Win 7 Pro 64bit PC. My issue is with the old mouse...if you high-lighted a word or text phrase I could immediately replace the highlighted word or phase with the paste command.

Also...while online...if I highlighted a word or phrase on a web page...I could simply right click and launch a Bing or Google serch from the right click pop-up menu.

With the new mouse...I highlight my target as before...but now...I have to click once on the highlited items and then porceed. Previously all I had to do is highlight the item(s) and go....no left click neccessary

Is this a particular setting in the MS setup screens...or just a factor I can't modify with this mouse ?

I DL'd the Mouse and Keyboard Centre for my Arc Mouse. The program is a real benefit, its totally customizable.
The attachment only shows you the 'Basic Settings', not the 'App-Specific Settings.
