    i have a cordless logitech optical mouse. the middle mouse button is bound to "close application". is it possible to have it both set as "close application" and have it usable inside a game.??

    Binding that button to "middle mouse button " using the Logitec control panel is the only way I have ever got a middle button function in games.
    Your mouse hasn't got a 4th button that could be changed to "close application"?
    There could be a keyboard command for closing apps but not as handy I know.
    Right button works as alternate select in Windows and mouse2 in games,so maybe write to Logitect about it and see if it can be done(maybe in the next drivers).

    I have logitech dual optical and I had the same problem. You need to check the two boxes in the scroller option then you should be able to use the scroll wheel in your games.[different setups vary] Image attached.

    I have both the scroll boxes unticked and used a patch from Logitech called "game_whl" that makes the wheel work in games
    ie weapon change in Quake3.
    The wheel funtions as it should in Windows as well so I didn't try ticking the boxes (maybe the wheel fix is in the drivers now).
