Enable the middle mouse button

1 January 2000 by Snakefoot | Comment » | Trackback Off
By default it only recognizes the left and the right mouse button, but one can activate the 3rd mouse button (or middle mouse button), which ex. then can be used to perform a double-click.

Edit this DWORD registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Services \ PORT-TYPE-X]
NumberOfButtons=3

PORT-TYPE-X should be exchanged with the type of mouse connection: "BUSMOUSE", "SERMOUSE", or "i8042PRT" (PS/2).
