    I just replaced this mouse with the same mouse. The old one quit
    scrolling with the middle button.

    If you are on a web page full of text, you can press and hold the
    middle button and this will allow the web page to scroll up and down
    by moving the mouse back and forth. The farther you move the mouse,
    the faster the page scrolls.

    Well the new mouse will do this only occasionally. Most of the time,
    when I press the middle mouse the icon of a circle with a up and down
    arrow doesn't work.

    Is there a setting I can change to make this work?

    Like I say, it does actually work sometimes, so I know the settings
    are correct. I just wonder if there are some sensitivity settings I
    have missed.

    Can you hear or feel a click every time you press the wheel? If you only
    hear or feel it when it works, it'll be a problem with the microswitch.

    All of the mice I had, you click on the middle button and release. Now
    move the mouse around. Click middle button again to cancel this
    scrolling. Does this work for you?

    Same here and it is not working. Unless I have missed a setting, I
    think the new mouse is bad. It does click.

    I am almost sure it is not working now. I changed the button function
    to enter. It seems to work much more frequently than when I used it
    for "middle click" but it doesn't work every time.

    "middle click" rarely worked.

    Thanks everyone

    I haven't used Intellipoint or Microsoft's mice for awhile but recall
    you could decide which auto-scroll method to use. There were two of
    them: universal scroll and MS-compatible scroll mode. If you go into
    the mouse properties, are different scroll methods selectable? If so,
    try the other one.

    These I find the oil from my finger causes the scroll wheel to swell and
    jamb. gone to logitech. Also the MS keyboards symbols wear off the keys
    quickly.

    My "Microsoft Mouse" with a wheel does this. When I download heaps of
    images I can do this by pressing the wheel (one click) and positioning
    the little weird cursor at the bottom of the screen. The screen will
    move down continuously until the download finishes. Then I go
    File|Save page as... and thereby save the lot. All the images are
    stored in a folder with a curious name, together with other detritus
    which can be deleted at leisure. The images so saved are often just
    thumbnails and can be screened for the desirable ones. Then these can
    be downloaded in fuller size by pasting the filename into the
    appropriate web field of the original site.
