  1. 2 questions , wheres my @ and mouse buttons keep defaulting


    1st question/problem is , the @ keeps changing from SHIFT 2 to SHIFT " , this can change daily.

    2nd question/problem is , my mouse buttons keep reverting to default, even when the box is checked to "switch primary button and secondary buttons" this can change daily also, can a windows update do this? strange part is, i have 3 PCS all doing the same thing.

    thanks, and i hope you guys are all doing well during covid/ISO

    :)

  2. Click Twice to open links, hit buttons, close tabs

    Hi Mary,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with accessing single click option after upgrading to Windows 10. We will help you with this issue.

    • Do let us know if this issue confined only with the accessing website on browsers (Which browser)?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    This problem may occur for the following reasons:

    • You are inadvertently double-clicking instead of single-clicking.
    • The mouse settings have been modified, either manually or by another program, to send a multiple-click command when you perform a single physical click.
    • The mouse drivers are corrupted.
    • The mouse hardware is defective.

    Step 1: I suggest you to restore the mouse buttons to default and check if it helps.

    Follow:

    • Click Start, point to Settings, and then click
      Control Panel.
    • Double-click Mouse.
    • On the Buttons tab, click Restore Defaults. If the problem impacts only a specific program, click the
      Settings button, choose that program, and then click Restore Defaults.

      Note: If Restore Defaults is not available, all your button assignments are already set to default mode.
    • Click OK.

    If you are using external mouse, try the below.

    Step 2: Test the mouse on another computer or test a different mouse on the computer To determine whether the mouse or the computer is defective, follow these steps:

    • Test the mouse in question on a system that you know is working. If the problem appears to follow the mouse, you may have to return or replace the mouse.
    • Test a mouse that you know is working on the computer in question. If the problem appears to remain on the computer, then the problem is most likely software-related.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with the required information for further assistance on this issue. We will be happy to help you.

  3. Default Browser tab opened when clicking both mouse buttons (left and right)

    Hi,

    Pressing both mouse buttons replicate the function of the middle button to open a new tab. This could've been triggered due to a change on your driver settings after the recent update. As an initial step, we suggest that you update your mouse driver to reset
    any changes to default. To do this, follow the steps provided on this
    link
    . Once you're done check if the issue persists.

    Feel free to post back should you need further assistance.
