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.

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.
