Windows 7: Changing UltraNav settings while a mouse is connected

Changing UltraNav settings while a mouse is connected

Hi, I am a new owner of a Lonovo ThinkPad with Windows 7, and I am having trouble with the settings. I am a lefty, so when I first configured the laptop I changed the mouse settings so that they are reversed. This worked fine.

But! I also wanted a real mouse, so I got a Microsoft wireless mouse (USB). Now, I mouse right handed since I am more used to it, so while the IntelliPoint software was installing, I changed the mouse settings back to default. I figured I would just go and change the settings whenever I didn't want to use the mouse.

But when the software finished installing, I found that the Control Panel Mouse window changed! Now, even when the mouse is unplugged, the place where I had been able to change the button settings is a new window that is specific for this mouse! Plus, these changes don't affect the UltraNav, so those buttons are still set for right-handed.

How do I change the UltraNav button settings?

Hello thebookster, and welcome to the forum.

I think you will have to uninstall the new mouse to get your old settings back. Should this work and you set up your Ultranav for a left handed person the Ultranav settings may still not work on reinstalling the new mouse. but it is worth a try.
