Hello cathyfry9091,

First, make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of MouseWare for your trackball. You can do that from HERE. Just choose your operating system and proceed to download the software.

Please see THIS utility as well, It is called MouseWare Advanced Setting Utility and if you scroll toward the bottom of this page, it tells you how to keep right/left button swap assignments. This article also shows you how to install the utility.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

You may need to go into the computer settings and find the mouse settings and do the "test" functions.
You may need to restart your computer with the mouse already connected and see if that helps.

904346-0403 Trackball: my mouse is slow...


Some tips..
this is not to say all that has happened, loads of time consuming tips are at the mouse company, which has pages and pages of tests.
Mostly when this happens to me, it is my pc overclocking it's P4 Processor.
ctrl + alt + delete = start the task manager, after that look at the cpu or processor usage. Nearing 100% all the time freezes the mouse and the pages. The issue is probably that people need to get and monitor a firewall and turn off a lot of background services sneaking in, delete cookies a few times each day, and set to delete everytime you close down the browser OR shut down your internet so it does not sneak on in the background using your pc for it's own advantage. Make sure your start up programs are heavily limited or monitored and that programs aren't allowed to do whatever they want. One is REAL PLAYER. Can be a nightmare. Many programs take over your pc and slow down things, it's important to learn what is happening with all this stuff using your pc at it's own will mercy, which is really merciless mos to the time.

Horizontal hold not working


inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9(not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Also turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area.

My Microsoft Intellimouse Trackball rolls but the cursor doesn't


the circular disk that surrounds the trackball and has a little raised part can be turned to left - take it off and ball will fall out- inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9 not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Slso turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area. Clean & dry ball- put back together and make sure to turn the circlular disc till it points to the dot on top. If that gets turned just a little off center it will cause ball to go all over. I've had mine for years & won't part with it. Can't stand chasing a regular mouse around the desk.

Trackball stops communicating with PC


Hi, logitech mice quite often have an 'auto power off' after a period of time. Instead of unplugging and plugging it back in, try clicking one of the mouse keys, give id 1-2 seconds and try it again.

Need the ability to "tab" from field to field on right of kybd


When you press ENTER to finish working in a cell, Microsoft Excel moves the cursor one cell down by default. However, you can select the direction in which you want the cursor to move.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Edit tab, do one of the following:
    • To change the direction in which the cursor moves, select the Move selection after Enter check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.
    • To keep the cursor in the current cell, clear the Move selection after Enter check box.
Note When a range or set of ranges is selected, pressing ENTER moves the cursor within the range or set or ranges only.

Involuntary right click


Assuming this happens when you roll the trackball and don't click right? Seen this so many times.
Could be caused by:

IF Software Related:
Virus or Spyware taking focus of screen and cursor
Keylogger taking control of cursor
Other software running in background that is controlling screen refresh and cursor control.
Confused Drivers within Windows.

IF Hardware Related:
Sticky Right Click button

Fix: Process of elimination unfortunately. Remove all mouse hardware from Device Manager and setpoint. Start from scratch. (FYI: mouse won't work right at first reboot.. give it a sec to reinstall windows drivers operation will return to normal)
