    Hi all!
    Im looking for something, i think it is a driver, but im not sure.
    This is what it does:
    When you push BOTH mouse buttons, the cursor changes to a circle with arrows and if you keep them pushed moving the mouse up or down allows you to scroll a web page up or down (not using the bar at the right, obviously).
    Try it, push both buttons and see if you have it.
    Can you tell me what is it or where to get it?
    Thanks!

    I've got that but my mouse has two buttons & a scroller. Push the scroller in & scroll up or down.

    I believe thats an additional piece of software from the mouse maker.

    My mouse does this (kensington) .. I think you have to install the added stuff ontop of the drivers.

    This is called auto-scroll, that should maybe help you google for a driver or tool to implement it - in my case it is implemented by clicking on my scroll wheel

    Before you go looking for drivers.

    You have to tell windows to treat the dual push as an autoscroll command.

    Start - control panel - mouse, select buttons tab. See if you can modify a combiation of button pushes to add autoscroll (btw mine calls it universal scroll).

    If dual push is not an option then you will need to go looking for specific drivers for your mouse to use it.
