  • Assign preset keys to perform specific tasks
  • Assign F keys to perform a specific task

My optical mouse has started exhibiting problems that are best described as slow to respond to clicks. Also noticed tabs in google chrome stick to the mouse once clicked.


Try taking a can of compressed air (can be found at Walmart for pretty cheap) and blowing out any debris located under the buttons of the mouse. Sounds like the contacts are sticking in the mouse.

You may also check to see if you have processes on the computer that are causing it to slow down. You can right-click on your task bar alone the bottom of the screen, select Task Manager, and click the performance tab to see if you're using a lot of resources.

Must turn off after each use because of batteries?


No, that is not true. The batteries will last a long time in the keyboard and mouse. I use rechargeable batteries in mine and don't have to change them out for 6 months or so. If you installed the Logitech software for the mouse and keyboard, you should get a notification in your task bar (near the clock) that will tell you when the batteries are getting low. Hope this helps.
