  1. My mouse pointer double clicks & sometimes lets go when I haven't let go of the mouse button.


    Sometimes when dragging something with the pointer it will let go of the item prematurely and other times when I simply single click an icon or something it counts as a double click.

    Things I've Tried: 1. Changing mice, 2. Updated all drivers, 3. Going into Mouse Properties and changing the Double-click speed property to 1 slowest. My DxDiag.txtis here in its entirety:

    Mouse started double clicking on single click file randomly.

    Hi KathZ,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    • Which version of Windows you are using? (To check, type: winver in start menu and hit enter.)
    • Does this issue occur on a different mouse?

    This issue happens, if there is mouse/hardware issue or it can be settings issue. I would suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps as mentioned below:

    Method 1: Restore the defaults.

    1. Press Windows
      and E key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Go to View tab on the top.
    3. Click on Options > Click on Change folder and Search options.
    4. Click on Restore Defaults.
      Click on Apply and Ok.

    Method 2: Change the Mouse settings.


    1. Click on the Settings icon from the start menu.
    2. Click on Devices > Click on Mouse from the left panel of the window.
    3. Click on Additional Mouse Options from the right pane.
    4. This will open the Mouse Properties window, go to Buttons tab.
    5. Under the Double click speed, drag the slider to the left to slow down the double click speed.
    6. Next, go to Pointer options tab, uncheck the "Enhance Pointer Precision" to
      disable pointer precision to slow down the mouse.

    For more information, I would suggest you to follow the
    steps
    provided in the post on 'Windows 10 mouse has started double clicking on single click randomly'.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.

  3. Mouse Pointer

    Hi,

    You can customize your mouse in a variety of ways in Windows. To change how your mouse pointer looks, you can follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu, then click Control Panel.
    • Select Mouse, then go to the Pointers tab.
    • Select the pointer you prefer from the drop-down list, click
      Apply > OK.

    If you want to use a pointer that is not on the list, you can download it online. After that, go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers tab again, then click
    Browse.

    Update us if it addressed your issue.

    My mouse pointer double clicks & sometimes lets go when I haven't let go of the mouse button.

    Mouse pointer gone, but click works!

    Hi!
    I don't know if it is the Geforce driver (tested on other pc: no, it is not guilty) but since yesterday updating Geforce drivers to the latest version, this morning my Razer mouse is fubar.

    I see no pointer. But it is shown in Device Manager, works also in BIOS (pointer shows up), and also left and right buttons seem to work, wherever the (invisible) pointer is...

    Is this driver related, or a half-dead mouse? The mouse also behaves bad connected to a Win 10 Surface without Razer or geforce drivers, so it looks to be the mouse.

    Maybe the cause lies in that last week I said herre this mouse was durable...?!?!?!
