    Re: Mouse Button

    Hi There-
    On my Dell Vista 32 machine, every time I set my Logitech V220 Cordless Mouse (via wireless USB) to switch primary and secondary, the change is implemented until I re-boot, at which time the the pointers revert to the previous settings.

    That means every time I re-boot I have to go into the Control Panel and reconfigure the mouse.

    Any thoughts on how to make the change survive a re-boot?

    Hi There-

    I tried using setpoint but it caused conflict with my Dell bluetooth keyboard. I replaced my Dell bluetooth mouse with the logitech mouse because the logitech is much more responsive.

    So, that means I am using the default Microsoft mouse driver.

    However, when I look in the device manager, there are two "HID-compliant mouse" entires. When I delete one, it reappears when I re-boot. Does that give any insight on how to resolve this?

    Thanks.
