Question about Microsoft Standard Wireless Optical Mouse

Mouse buttons not always detected

Clicks (either on left or right button) are often not detected and multiple clicks are needed before it is detected. I've changed the batteries, but it's still the same. Pressing the 'connect' button on the mouse doesn't help either. I've only had the mouse a few months.

Clean your mouse with cloth and remove all dirt. Then unplug it and again plug it.

Is there any metal (desk) close to the receiver or mouse? This can interfere with reception. Try putting the receiver close to the mouse and see what it does

Tapping on gateway nv 53 trackpad not working


This just happened on my HP2730P. I always used the click on the touchpad, plus used the right click button at the bottom. Yesterday it just decided to stop working and went haywier...it started doing the selecting and dragging while I was moving the mouse around and my left click stopped working. Obviously my enable tap click was already on cuz I used it all the time.

My solution was disabling the buttons under the "buttons" tab. Then my mousepad tap started working again, I regained function in the scrollbar on the mousepad again, and if I need to right click I can use the point stick buttons right above the pad.

OR

Does it start working when you reboot? If so, try changing the "Touchpad Sensitivity" option :)

Is it an old (as in used a lot) mouse, I had a similar problem a while back and it was down to a worn out micro-switch, it would still work but because something inside had work out it would always double tap.

It may not be the answer to your problem, but at least if you can test another mouse it will rule out any mouse control panel issues

The red light is connectivity to the dongle on the PC.
Check your mouse settings in Windows for the left mouse button settings.
Does the mouse move on the screen?
You can try reversing the mouse buttons to see if the button is defective. If you swap the buttons and now right mouse clicks do not work, the button is defective.

You checked the settings. Most likely the micro-switch in the mouse is "bouncing" which means the output of the switch contains noise that is interpreted as multiple

Change mouse clicks


Hi,

Please click on control panel and click on mouse settings. The first tab would help you to swap the right and the left buttons of a mouse.
