  1. How to remap mouse left-side button to ctrl-click?


    I recently started using windows after being a mac use for the past decade. One thing I've gotten very used to is using the left-side button on my (microsoft) mouse to "open in new tab" when I'm in a web browser. However it seems in windows the default mapping for this button is browser back.

    It seems what I need to do is remap this button to do a control-click. I've looked in both Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center as well as X-Mouse Button Control, but it seems like neither will let you remap a button to do a control-click. It seems you can only remap them to do a combination of key presses.

    Is there any way to remap this button to do control-click? Or is there another way to get this button to do "open in new tab" when I'm in a browser? I appreciate any help!

    Remap wireless mouse buttons?

    Hey there! *Smile How to remap mouse left-side button to ctrl-click? :)
    I have Logitech MX620 wireless mouse and i'm looking for remap search button (never used it) to something more useful, like Refresh for i-net browsers. Is it possible to remap it without using additional software (editing registry or something like that)?

  3. Mouse aditional buttons recognized as keybord keys

    I tried using the app you suggested but didn't work because I didn't know if the mouse was sending right or left CTRL/ALT/SHIFT/Windows keys.

    Then I came across this app http://atnsoft.com/keyremapper/. I manage to remap Right CTRL and Right ALT to back and forward buttons, respectively. But then if I press those keys
    it's as if I press the mouse buttons.

    In your last reply you said that I could remove the keyboard inputs, may I ask what did you mean by that?

  4. How to remap mouse left-side button to ctrl-click?

    Frustrated with Ctrl + Mouse movement jumping to start button

    I don't know what to do to fix this. I use the Left Ctrl button my computer to select multiple files at the same time (ie., emails, files, folders, etc), but with my new Windows 10 computer any movement of the mouse paired with holding down the left ctrl
    button (and only the left one weirdly) makes the cursor jump to the start button. It's really annoying and I can't find any way to fix this. The computer is brand new so it's not likely a virus or anything. It seems like an accessibility feature but I can't
    find any way to turn it off. Does anyone have any suggestions??
