Left handed use of dell mouse

I have a new Dell computer and mouse - I work in a large institution. When i use the mouse left-handed, I accidentally hit the little control buttons on the left side of the mouse - it is messing me up. Can i turn off those buttons?
There was no product information given to me, so i don't actually know the model name or number - it is optical.

    There is no control for the side buttons on teh "Buttons" tab in the control panel. Does anyone know how to adjust the settings of these?

    to egadgetguy,
    At work, we have about these mice on about 15 computers. None
    of the computers have any mention of these buttons on the control panel->mouse->buttons tab.

    It looks like Dell created a mouse that has little buttons right where a left handers fingers hold the mouse, and provide no way to disable the buttons (short of using a sledge hammer).

    So a left hander just has to go to the additional expense of buying an additional mouse (or 15 of them)? Or feel like a klutz because the mouse keeps clicking on things we dont want them to?

    There is no buttons tab in the control panel/mouse... supposedly you need to download the dell mouse suite from their support site to change that funtionality.. although I have done all that.. and set the left mouse buttons both to 'None' for functionality & nothing seems to have changed.. even rebooted the box to see if that was necessary for the changes to take...

Go to control panel, double click 'mouse', look at 'buttons' tab. Change as needed!

Non responding wireless mouse and keyboard


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the mouse itself is faulty, if the right button when depressed returns to position and you hear the familiar click, and you don"t hear that from the left button, then the mouse itself is faulty, ask Dell to send another mouse, it should be on warranttee with your new computer.

My right click menu pop's up when ever i try to click on my laptop anywhere, i have a DELL inspiron 1520.


is your pointer set to be opposite... go into control panel and mouse options, and see if you accidentally switched your mouse clicker buttons.... try clicking with the right click, does it still open your 'right-click' menu? does it work normal on an external mouse?

maybe its just a setting issue,... if not then prolly need a new mouse pad...

Mouse left click problem


it is possible you changed the scheme for your mouse pointers.

you can reset it back to the windows default by going to "control panel", then if you are using the catagory view, you would select "printers and other hardware" Next, select "mouse".

( if using classic view, simpy select "mouse" from the control panel).

Next, while on the "mouse" screen, select the "pointers" tab. At the top, there is a drop down menu for " Scheme". Choose either None, or Windows Default, and then click "apply" and then "ok".

Close out all control panel boxes and test.

Good Luck :)

Dell Wireless Mouse does not track and skips


Could be radio interference. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring.
