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.

No results from right clicking

if you can hear by ear after you click right button same sound as when you push left button, then it will be software problem.....
if you can't hear same sound, then microswitch is broken, or not in proper possition.....
if it's software problem, try to plug it into another usb port, or somebody elses computer, then you will see if problem persists also there....
if it doesn't work on another computer, then it will be mouses problem.... take it back to bookstore and ask them for refund or exchange

My dell mouse (I'm not sure which kind it is) will not right click. It moves, i can left click, but just not right click. Copying and pasting without CTRL is hard, and I cannot bring any menus up.

you might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers
click start control panel administration tool computer managenent device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right click to update drivers
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty
(if applicable)
make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot

How do I use the printscreen key feature?

Have the computer screen on the item you wish to "copy" then hit the Print Screen key, without copying anything else so that your picture stays on the clipboard (or "in the mouse") go to your picture editing program, ie. Windows Paint, Paint Shop Pro, IrfanView (a freee downloadable program) and click on "Edit" then "Paste" and then save the final product.

Logitech g5 mouse problems

If you go into the logitech mouse setup program "Setpoint" there should be a section that tells the mouse what each button will do. It's probably got "Nothing" or something similar selected. See if you can find one that says "Right Click" or something along those lines, and select that, and press OK/Apply to save settings, and see if it changes anything.
