Question about Dell 2 Button Mouse 6u226

1 Answer

Mouse left click problem

When I left click on the mouse I get a large + instead of the normal cursor. Did I accidentally change a setting and not know it? The plus symbol is something that I have seen before in my Word program used in drawing word boxes or clip art.

It is possible you changed the scheme for your mouse pointers.

you can reset it back to the windows default by going to "control panel", then if you are using the catagory view, you would select "printers and other hardware" Next, select "mouse".

( if using classic view, simpy select "mouse" from the control panel).

Next, while on the "mouse" screen, select the "pointers" tab. At the top, there is a drop down menu for " Scheme". Choose either None, or Windows Default, and then click "apply" and then "ok".

Close out all control panel boxes and test.

Good Luck :)

Cursor jumps around


Depending on the sensitivity and settings of the touchpad, it may register undesired motions as mouse controls, causing the cursor to jump erratically. The software drivers that includes with its systems have sensitivity options that help alleviate this problem and ensure that only deliberate touchpad motions and taps cause the cursor to move.

Click on the Start menu and open the Control Panel. Choose an "Icon View" option from the "View by" dropdown menu, then click the "Mouse" icon. Navigate to the "Device Settings" tab and click on the Synaptics device in the list. If you have installed and use custom software other than a Synaptics application for controlling the touchpad, select it instead. Click the "Settings" button. Click the "+" symbol to expand the "Pointing" section in the left frame, and then the "Sensitivity" section. Click on "PalmCheck." If you have replaced the Synaptics drivers, the menu may use a different set of options. Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Maximum" setting. An increased PalmCheck setting will help decrease cursor jumping due to accidental palm activations, a common occurrence when typing. Click on "Touch Sensitivity." Click and drag the bar to the right, closer to the "Heavy Touch" end. This will ensure light brushes by fingers or accidental activations by other objects will not cause the cursor to jump. Click "Apply" to test the settings, and "OK" when satisfied to save the changes and close the window.

Logitech mouse right click too sensitive


Your computer mouse has preferences to make it easier to use. You can change the style and of the pointer, and you can change the sensitivity, which controls how easy or difficult it is to scroll across the screen. Speeding up the mouse sensitivity can allow you to move your cursor across the computer screen faster, while slowing it down can give you better control but you may have to move the mouse a greater distance to get your cursor to where you want it.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and type "mouse" into the Search field. Click on the "Change Mouse Settings" link in the search results. Click on the "Pointer Options" tab. Move the Motion slider bar to the right for a faster speed and to the left for a slower speed. Click "Apply" to apply the settings. Move your mouse to see if those are the settings you would like. If not, adjust the slider bar again. When you find the right setting for you, click "OK" to save the settings and close the window.

Slow curser using mouse


The cursor speed can be changed in the mouse settings in control panel ..Just open the control panel ...choose mouse..and after that in general select the mouse speed (there is a slide cursor that allows you to choose a better speed..)
If it is still slow..it may be caused by a wide resolution chosen in the settings ..and the mouse is not made for it ..There are mice made for large resolutions ..and they move much better ..(there is no difference in price ..but they are just a new generation and made this way cause most computers evolved to using large resolutions on screen ) ..
If your mouse is a few years old ..this is for sure the cause..It will speed up a little if you change the settings but still be slower than most new ones..By the way ..if you choose pointer in the mouse settings will show the pointer speed setting ..on the first screen will be just the double-click settings ..have a nice day !

Tool bar moved t right and is large


Right click on the task bar (I assume you mean the bar that is typically at the bottom of your desktop?)
Make sure "Lock the Task bar" is not checked
Click on the border of the task bar
drag directly from where you clicked to the bottom
Adjust height accordingly

"sticky" mouse on compaq laptop


Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.

To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.
