Hello Digger,

Not sure why not. A reboot may help if it was just a glitch.

nah, the glitch was my ownself, lol... but it is a bit touchy/stubborn to get it to act like it should in my own mind i guess... i have to shake my window pretty violently and this is a pretty sensitive mouse.

thanks for the lookout Brink, may tinker with the sensitivity settings some more.

[edit] first i have messed with a "touch-type" feature like this. just takes some getting used to i think also
