I can no longer swipe content by holding down my left mouse to highlight and copy

All of a sudden I can no longer left click and swipe/highlight content within my browser or the body of email content to copy and paste. I can highlight and copy may address but nothing in the browser window.


I am using ie 6 with service pack 3. I have concluded this is not a problem with my mouse. It works on other computers.


Thanks,

James Saunders

How do I copy an image?


Using the keyboard it's control V for the copy and the control P for paste.on the mouse it should be right click the look at the dropdown menu for copy then when you get to the file or folder right click to find paste option.sometimes it is possible to assign the mouse for left handed use which would make the function a left click for copy and paste.also you should be able to drap and drop with a right click whilst holding it down.please vote if this is of help thanks.

I have a wireless hp mouse and keyboard ... and I use to be able to copy and paste with my mouse .... now I can no longer do that ... it won't let me use the left mouse button to highlight the text.


Check your mouse settings, make sure everything is hunky dory with how you want it set up, if that does not fix your problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling your software with the latest drivers and software, you can download this from the website!

I bought a mouse (HP Wireless Optical Mobile Mouse (VK479AA)) and I can't hold down the keys. By that I mean when I hold the button down, it isn't held, instead, the computer thinks I'm constantly pressing...


I have the same problem. I posted on HP forum but did not get any help. I contacted HP technical support. They sent me a new mouse but it behaves the same way.

I can't hold the left button down and drag pictures or icons on the desktop.


Check if the mouse has been aligned for to be used by Left-Handed or RIght Handed people. If the settings are correct try reinstalling the drivers for the mouse. If that doesnt help either, try replacin the mouse and see if that helps.

Logitech G7 cordless laser mouse - erratic action


Acting on advice from another FixYa string, we blew out the mouse and dock several times with canned air. It performed slightly better, but then as we continued to use the mouse it suddenly cleared and is working almost 100% now.

From reading earlier strings, I'm wondering why Logitech (in its product material received on purchase) doesn't recommend this as periodic maintenance for the mouse?

Try to reinstall Normal 0 Disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Highlighting


you may have turned on click-lock. You can disable this feature in Control Panel, under Accessibility Options. Click Lock helps people who have a hard time holding the mouse button while dragging the mouse across the screen by holding the mouse button for them
