Notes A message box with a link to more information about Microsoft Magnifier may appear. To close the box, select OK. To use Magnifier but hide the Magnifier Settings dialog box, select the Minimize button. To turn off Magnifier, in the Magnifier Settings dialog box, select the Exit button
Download the latest Microsoft Mouse Software from http://www.microsoft.com/hardware and install it. It will give you the option to set the software to match whichever wireless mouse you are using, and from there, you can get your default button assignments back.
Give that a shot!
1. Click Start, then select Control Panel
2. Double click on Mouse icon
3. In Mouse Properties locate the box that says "Right Side Button"
4. If this box says "Magnify (Default), Click on the drop down arrow and go down list and select disabled, the Click Apply and then OK. This should take the magnify feature off.
5. To reactivate the "Magnify" feature, go back to Mouse Properties, go down the list to "Right Side Button" . Click on the down list and go down the list and select "Magnify (Default). Click on Apply button, then Click on OK. This should reactivate the Magnify feature.
The button on the left side of the mouse when pressed turns the Magnifier on/off. Just press it again and it should turn off. I kept turning it on accidentally so I went in the control panel and switched the Magnifier to the right side. I added that below so you can set your mouse buttons.
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon.
Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons.
In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right
Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right
Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right
Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button
settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud
First of all make sure to update to the latest driver. The problem is, the side buttons are very easy to push without meaning to do so. Right click the mouse icon in your system tray and select "Mouse Properties" select the BUTTONS tab, then disable both the left and right side mouse buttons. Click on APPLY and then OK
Try going to Control Panel and click on the mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse. In the left column,move your cursor over the right side button click on the drop down and select magnify. Hopefully it will now work.
I had to move the magnify function to the left button because it was to sensitive on the right.
Hi, I have the same problem. I resolved it. The steps are -
1.Go to control panel
2. click on mouse and it will take you to mouse properties . It will display you the Microsoft mouse
3.Go to "buttons" Tab
4.Change the option in the "small thumb button" box to "click" from "Magnifier"..the default is "Magnifier"..that is why if u accidentally push this button..it opens up an annoying magnifier..
5. then click apply..It works
use the left button on the side (the same one that turns it on), but you have to click quickly, because if you hold it down (as i did), you only get the option to change the dimensions of the magnification area.
