I'm using a friend's Vista machine and she's complaining about her MS Mouse (Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000) misbehaving. She's right. I can't find out where to check settings in Vista to fix:
- focus changes immediately when the mouse moves outside a window
- must double-click instead of single click when last week the single click worked
- the alt seems to have been enabled
- other unexpected results

I went to computer > hardware and sound > mouse properties and wasn't able to check/set any of the buttons ... and I can't find the tab/page/window to check/fix settings in the MS Mouse. (I've always used Logitech and am on XP, so Vista is unfamiliar to me)

Friend said that "suddenly mouse began being weird, she replaced batteries, but didn't fix the problem".

Help?!!

Here's the mouse:

Thanks Carpo . .. I have no idea what you wrote ;) ... but it turns out there's a "mouse controller" with a clever little button that one can push to reset the mouse behavior ... and voila ... all is good.

I'm clearly going to have to read the Vista documentation before I use it myself :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
