Using the mouse

Please be nice... How right clicking with the magic mouse?

We've all been through it.

You have two options.   Hold down the CTRL key once you have the slider to where you want... and then click.   Or go to System Preferences > mouse > and enable secondary click by checking the box.   Then you put pressure on the right side of the mouse that you clicked.

    This happens on all sites, or only on certain sites?

    Some sites may have "copy" scripts that change what happens when you right-click. To prevent sites from pre-empting the normal context menu of Firefox, try the third "Advanced JavaScript" setting described in this article: JavaScript and their preferences for interactive web pages settings (uncheck the third).

    Does make a difference?

    (Incidentally, I noticed on the threads in Google groups if you select widely, the selection is cleared when you do a right click, but if you select a little less, it is not clear.) I have not studied the model in detail).

  • I use the mouse for scrolling wheel. It stopped working during the installation of the V4.

    I use the mouse wheel to scroll on my desk and the button of "middle" in conjunction with the pointer on my laptop (lenovo thinkpad W500) node to simulate a mouse wheel. At the point in time, I upgraded firefox to V4, this function stop working. I tried it in IE and it still works there, and it still works in swriter , so it is not something has changed in the hardware or the operating system (XP). Any suggestions?

    Try this:

    Type of topic: config in the address bar, press ENTER, Firefox asks if you want to access the settings, say yes you know the risk.

    When the list of configurations to come, type track point in the filter area, you will see a frame ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled , that change from-1 to 1. Now you should be able to scroll through the help of trackpoint and the Center button of the mouse on the trackpad again.

  • What is a quick way to exit Windows 7 without using the mouse?

    On Windows XP, I could type the window then u and U key to exit.

    On Windows 7 I seem to need the mouse to exit, even if I did stop my setting of the default button.

    In addition, Windows 7 wants to drag me through a few caveats that I've closed everything.

    Sometimes, it's just my email that is open or a file folder, then there is no pending work.

    But I want to just close without the quiz on my understanding of the risks of loss of work, etc..

    I know that some applications such as Norton and Windows update can simply kill all ongoing enforcement programs to restart

    during the installation of updates, so the 'risk' is not worth the constant reading.

    Here are the steps to stop Windows 7 without using the mouse:

    Press Windows (Windows key).
    Release it
    Press the right arrow key
    Press ENTER key

    If you don't want warnings to stop, you can create a shortcut on the desktop with the command-line ' shutdown/f' and assign a key combination.

    See the following link for more shutdown command line options:

    Once you create the shortcut icon on the desktop, you right-click on the icon, select Properties. In the shortcut tab, you can assign a key under the shortcut key combination to launch this program.

  • Using the mouse, the right click button is continually pressed inadvertently

    While using the mouse, the right click button is continually pressed inadvertently.  IS THERE A WAY TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL CLICK RIGHT TO ACTIVATION?

    If the manufacturer of your laptop includes options for your touchpad, I would check those to see if the right click function can be turned off or customized how make you these options I can't tell you, because Microsoft is not build to tap keys or options software for them.  Only your PC manual or manufacturer can tell you exactly how to set these options (if they exist).

  • Cannot use the mouse after installing windows 7

    Original title: mouse W7 disorders linux Instalation


    so I had linux on my computer, but now I myself bought a treat - W7 Home premium 64-bit. So I had wiped the hard disks and clean. Everything worked before (on linux), but while I was installing W7 something must have gone wrong - I couldn t move the mouse , from the moment of the instalation was started - so I thought maybe it s a few pilot missing, but now (after completing the instalation) I ve tried four or five mouse (usb, ps2, usb wireless), but none of them work. I did remember to restart with the mouse still connected. I also tried a different usb port, restart the pc and not even a simple memory card is able to load... and then I thought to try the live CD (it was linux yet) and the mouse works - so tell me, where could be the problem? It seems that there is something wrong with the windows software, but I Don t have an idea what is...

    the keyboard works very well (thankfully), that the screen resolution is still correct ;)

    thx for any helpful answer :)


    Hi again once, thank you so :)

    After confirming that it s probably related to drivers, I found a driver CD for my motherboard (I built the computer at home with parts) and learned how to use "mouse keys" and managed to install a few drivers - after restarting the pc, (after some time) everything went very well-> the PC works great now.

    The greatest difficulty before was that I was luckily able to use the "mouse keys" and he kept breaking the feet,, I thought that it s associated with the mouse, but it was just my incompetence :D (I forgot to keep alt + shift)

    Thank you so much, again :)
