    Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.


    What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

    EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

    Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

    A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

    The other mouse worked just fine but now the old(broken?) mouse works again. How is it even possible for a mouse to periodically click on it's own and fix itself given time?

    Bad cable, LED, or electronic snafu. It'll likely quit working again.

    I have a temporary fix for anyone who doesn't want to fix their mouse or buy a new one!
    Go to: www.clickfix.cf
    It takes less than 5 minutes to set up, guaranteed (by me anyway )
