XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

When I click the scroll wheel on my mouse while on a web page it displays a magnifying glass with a plus sign in it. What I want it to do is a "middle click". In Firefox I use this to open a link in a new tab. In other applications I use it to close a tab. I downloaded the latest version of SetPoint from the Logitech site but am hesitant to install it. Any ideas?

Re: XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

I have tried that but there is no option for setting the action when the scroll wheel is pressed. Vertical and horizontal scrolling are the only options on the Wheel tab. Nothing for the scroll wheel press on the Buttons tab either.

Re: XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

It is a Dell branded mouse though I believe it is made by Logitech. They are listed as

Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard
Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard
Microsoft eHome MCIR Keyboard
Microsoft eHome Remote Control Keyboard keys
HID-compliant mouse
Logitech HID-compliant Cordless Mouse

 

I'm running Vista Home Premium.

Re: XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

that's pretty much the way mine are listed. I am not sure if the setpoint will even work with your mouse under vista.

I suppose you could try installing it and see what happens. I have found no version that appears to be compatable with my mouse and vista..

Re: XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

Download and install the mouse/keyboard software fron the Dell driver page.  It's the only way to get the ability to change any of the button functions.

Re: XPS One bluetooth mouse problem.

There is nothing displayed under that category after entering my service tag. That tells me that Dell doesn't have an updted driver.

 

I guess I'll try installing SetPoint and hope it doesn't totally hose me. Smiley Happy

Installed SetPoint and was able to change the behavior of the scroll wheel to be the middle click as I wanted. I got the SetPoint software from the Logitech website. Thanks for the replies.
