Windows 7: New Mouse driving me crazy

New Mouse driving me crazy

I recently bought an MS wireless kb and mouse combo. Everything is fine except I can't get the mouse to middle click and open up a tab like I could with my wired Logitech. I looked around the web but didn't find much other then other people complaining about the same issue.

Any suggestions? I'm almost ready to take it back to BestBuy and try the Rockfish combo as I liked the feel of that mouse better.

Thanks,
Burt

Have you set the middle button to perform the "Middle Click" function?

There's no option to open a tab in the mouse control software.

You might want to give X-mouse a try.

Do you have the latest Intellipoint software installed?

Tried both with no success. Maybe I'll just have to get used to right click left click.

Thanks for the suggestions,
