    Mouse

    I have Windows ME and a Intellipoint Explorer Mouse. The side buttons will not work in Netscape but do work in IE.
    Does anyone know why????
    Also I have to keep resetting the top wheel every time I restart my computer!!!!!!!!
    What a pain.
    Suggestions are welcome.

    Re: Mouse

    Netscape most likely doesn't use the same hook that IE does when it comes to going back and forward on a web browser. Unfortunately you cannot program a key sequence (yet) with the IntelliPoint software either.

    When you say you have to reset the top wheel, what do you mean by that? Reset it to what? Does it not work after a reboot, or is it something different?

    Re: Mouse

    I have the top button set to delete when I push it. Every time i restart, it doesn't work. I have to go back into the settings and set it up to delete again.

    You can use Markup tags to produce a real bulleted list.

    Like this:
    <UL><LI>first item
    <LI>second item
    <LI>third item[/list]<img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Yes, but I don't like the 'filled in' bullets. Sorry...

    Here's a sneaky way of getting the hollow ones:
    <UL><UL><LI>first item
    <LI>second item
    <LI>third item[/list][/list]

    Re: Mouse

    Just a bit of levity to give you a grin with your problem. When I tried to load my Logitech trackball under Win98, windows gives me a warning box that says "MS WIN knows better which mouse you are using and will load the correct drivers." and then refuses to let me change the buttons. It is scarry when the program starts telling me it knows better what I want than I do. Anyway I stuck with default. I watch all these postings, this one in particular, to see if I might find a way to convince Win98 to do things my way.

    Re: Mouse

    In reply to your questions-yes, I went to the web site.
    The properties screen only has 5 tabs--should there be 6?
    USB--no "Human Interface Device"
    How do I wake up the USB facility??
    Thanks for the help

    Re: Mouse

    Make sure the drivers you have are for the Intellimouse Explorer (Intellipoint) and that it is plugged into a USB port (not PS/2 or Serial).

    There should be 6 tabs when you choose Properties from the systray icon :

    <UL><UL><LI>Buttons
    <LI>Pointers
    <LI>Pointer Options
    <LI>Hardware
    <LI>Activities
    <LI>Wheel
    [/list][/list]In Device Manager, at the very end there should be a section named 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' and listed in it should be:

    <UL><LI>Intel 82371AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
    <LI>USB Root Hub[/list][/list]You should also re-boot, and during the re-boot process get to the BIOS (press F2 or DEL before Windows starts to load - it should tell you which) and when in there find and enable Legacy USB.

    Come back if no joy.

    Hi Eileen

    <UL><UL><LI>so that's
    <LI>how you
    <LI>did it.[/list][/list]The latest version isn't in the Tag Panel, though. Had to use 'View Partial Source' in IE to find the code. An extra <ul>[/list]tag crept in. Sneaky - but useful.
    Tx.

    How do you view *partial* source?
