Mouse Snap-to Default In Ie8

I'm trying to get the mouse to snap to the default button in ie8. I have windows 7 64-bit home premiere. Ie8 is 32-bit. I set the mouse properties to move mouse to default button, but it does not work. I checked the registry and the mouse snap to key =1. Is this a problem with ie8? It always worked in windows xp and earlier ies. I've changed mice from a usb wireless to a basic microsoft usb wired three button mouse. I tried updating the driver but windows says it's updated.

How To Re-assign Function Of Mouse Buttons?

I have an intellimouse optical usb and ps/2 compatible. When on windows xp i was able to re-assign any mouse button to one of many functions, e.g cut, copy, paste, etc, etc. This was a standard feature of the mouse software, which was intellipoint 4 (i think), and i found it very useful. Using the same mouse on my new pc running windows 7, i cannot find this utility. Can anyone out there advise on how i can get this feature on windows 7 ?

I used it on a second mouse with only the three buttons active and one each assigned to cut, copy and paste. This avoids having to use two fingers for , and , which i find awkward and slow. Just hitting one button is much quicker when you use these three edits very frequently, as i do. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.

Aero Snap

My computer:windows 7-64 bit cpu: intel i7 memory: 8 gb display card: nvidia geforce 220 1 gb ddr color depth 32 bit wei score: 5. 9 held down by hdd score. I have been through everything in this webpage:http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3069-aero-snap-turn-off.html and cannot seem to get aero snap to work. I do not know if my video card is sufficient, but i suspect that it is as this computer is <1 year old. When i drag windows around, they just stay whenever i release the mouse button. Any suggestions?

Compare Windows Snap Using Two Monitors

Using vista and xp pro, i would open two occurrences of windows explorer and manually arrange them to be viewed side by side, which allowed me to conveniently move files around.

Windows 7 automates that task through its snap feature, a feature that allows windows to be compared side by side by simply dragging an occurrence of the window to a side of the monitor.
I use two 24" monitors.

When i drag a window, such as a version of windows explorer, to the left side of the screen of monitor 1, it snaps perfectly into place and has a width of about 1/2 of the monitor on my left. That saves me a tremendous amount of time.

When i drag another window to the right side of monitor 1, it continues to travel to monitor 2. The window i wish to compare does not snap into place until it reaches the right side of monitor 2. Is there a setting that allows the snap feature to recognize i want the additional window to snap to the same monitor as the window snapped-to on the left?

Aero Snap Cannot Be Used For Viewing Two Excel Files

I am not able to arrange two microsoft excel files side by side using aero snap functionality. When i click on the stack in the task bar and select one file and drag to left to view half-screen, it displays good there. But when  try to select the second excel file from the stack on the task bar it basically replaces the one which i dragged earlier instead of opening some where for me to drag to right. Whereas i can do the same with two word files or other applications. Appreciate your help.

When i click on start button and start typing in the search field, it finds a lot of stuff, and shows under the headings of "videos" and "documents", etc. I want the computer to show programs only, not anything else. For example, i typed "wo", i wanted the windows to show me link to microsoft word program, so i can open the program. It does, but it shows a lot of other things under the headings of "videos" or "documents" that i do not want to see, some may not be appropriate for my kids. How can i stop windows from doing this?

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.
