Windows 7: instant viewer feature for logitech

instant viewer feature for logitech

hello folks - i have been coming to sevenforums for a long time now and appreciate all the help from people in the know (as in not me). well two hours or searching google and this site has yet to yield what i'm looking for - either that or i'm too tired from studying to realize.

when i used to press my MS mouse programmed to "instant viewer", it was like an expose feature. i broke that mouse and then got a logitech corded M500 and it had the same function in its options. i didn't like the scroll button so switched to logitech's LX8 wireless: it has a document flip option but that's the same as the winkey + alt feature (which i just don't like).

sooo, can anyone tell me how to get the same feature as instant viewer (or expose) without having to download a bunch of random programs? i can't remember the feature that was available with the M500 and not the LX8, so i apologize for that. i read about uberoptions but the website says its not quite compatible with setpoint 6.0 yet and i don't want to install something like switcher. i know i am being specific here but i just wanted to be able to see all windows and then chose one at the click of my mouse. its frustrating cause i had it perfect before i broke my mouse and then again with a mouse i didn't like.

i apologize if this is in the wrong forum - first time posting. i was going to post in the logitech forum but i think this community is much smarter and resourceful based on the hours of reading i have done.

Instant Viewer for any mouse

Hi, in order to enable instant viewer for non-Microsoft mice. You need to change your mouse driver. After installing the latest version of Intellipoint software: . Go to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Mouse > Hardware Tab > Properties > Change Settings > Driver > Update Driver > Browse My Computer...> Let Me Pick...> Uncheck show compatible hardware > Scroll down to Microsoft and select any driver that has Intellipoint in parentheses. Install the driver, then you may be prompted to reboot. As far as your computer is concerned you now have a Microsoft mouse.
*You may have two drivers installed, if so change them both.
