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.

The blinking line in the address bar runs across the address bar causing my page to scroll all the way down and when i try to scroll back up the page bounces


Is this adress bar the internet search ?
This might be a mouse related problem

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected.
You might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers.

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
Right click you will need to update the driver.

Click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected in xp

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

In XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

For the double or single click options to open folders this will be in the folder options follow previous to get to control panel items

Click start control panel navigate folder options tick in the double click to open circle

hope this helps

My computer wont recognize new wireless mouse


Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge
make sure the usb device is properly inserted
make sure you turn the mouse on depending on type/brand of mouse it will vary it could be a button or switch on top or bottom also you might try safe mode

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer then if your mouse works
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver
hope this helps

No mouse, how do i do the things like highlight that i used to right click with


Does the laptop have a touchpad (usually centered on the keyboard below the space bar) with two buttons above it? Then drag your finger across the selection to highlight it. Then click the right button.

It may take some practice. I usually end up getting a finger to register as moving to a new point on the screen when I try to move up to the buttons.

If you are still more comfortable with a mouse, get a USB corded or wireless mouse. Connect the mouse to a free port and use as you normally do. (Wireless mice can be a little tricky when the batteries run down or the receiver and mouse lose their connection.) If you have limited ports, a USB hub will usually be fine for connecting a mouse.

I hope this helps.

(Note: some older laptops need the touchpad disabled to avoid confusion. With Windows, Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager)

Touchpad will not work


Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs

Compac presario mouse stuck when on desktop but not on log in screen. little box on task bar with red through box


Get an external usb mouse, once you have it plugged in restart the computer. Then go into the device manager and uninstall your old mouse, unplug the usb mouse, then restart. That should fix your problem. Let me know if you need more details.
