I need help with a problem with my Sony Vaio laptop serial # PCG-71318L.
I need to replace my wireless mouse.
The touchpad is turned off and I cannot figure out how to turn it on among the control panel options. I see on online forums others had this problem but I see no solutions.
I have tried to install 2 new wireless mice. When I do this the new mice do not work.
I updated my Firefox to version 16 and where I used to be able to middle-click on links to open them in a new tab, now NOTHING happens when I do it. No new tab opens or anything. I've looked through all of my settings and can't find anything that has changed from my previous settings regarding opening middle-clicked links in a new tab / window. HALP!
Ever play a game, like Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) on a multiple monitor setup, and accidentally click your mouse JUST past the edge of the screen by accident, causing the game to completely minimize? If you do this while playing SWTOR, it'll minimize to your taskbar, which you'll have to click on, which brings up a loading screen and then when it's done loading finally shows the game screen that you were on when you accidentally clicked off of it.
Sometimes if you're going to be away from your computer for a little while, you may just put it in standby rather than shut it down. However because some mice are so sensitive, if you tip your mouse or even the desk the computer wakes up again. This is because your mouse is set up to wake the computer when it's touched.
To disable this feature take the following steps:
If you're tired of trying to read the fine print on your computer screen then this tip has the quick fix.
In Vista and Windows 7, you can zoom by holding the Ctrl key and rolling the scroll wheel on your mouse.
I'm working on writing a small 10 question quiz program. What I am trying to do in one of the questions is make it so only one out of the two possible answers will not be clickable. What I mean is when the user get's near the one check box it moves away from the mouse and will not allow you to select it. I"m thinking it's possible to do this with the mouse move event but im not sure how exactly to do write it.
If you are in keyboard mode and need to access the right click menu options, here's how. Very simple, and I had no clue what this button was for until recently.
The button between the "Alt" and "Ctrl" does the trick. Just hit it and then scroll down with the arrow keys to choose options.
I've had it with my mouse. I have one of those ergonmic ones that I love, (pic below) but every once in a while it loses connection and I keep having to unplug it and replug it make it work again. Sometimes it only lasts a couple of minutes and I have to do it again, sometimes I can go for weeks with it being ok. Anyone have any idea what the problem is here? It's starting to drive me NUTS!!!
OK I finally took the time to figure out how to disable touchpad mouse so it doesn't take two hours to make a post !
I wanted to share this with everyone !!!
