Hi-

I am not sure if this is the right newsgroup but I just reinstalled my MS
Intellimouse Optical on my window xp pro system and I am trying to configure
the side button to simulate SHIFT in IE. It has been so long since I
installed it that I can't remember what I need to do. The software only
lets me customize the buttons to specific actions. I thought there was a
way to specify it per program. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in
advance and I apologize if this is the wrong newsgroup.

One post is good enough. You will need to install the IntelliType
software and configure it. Did you use a third party software or did
you just use this last time?

Sorry, about the double posts. I am using Outlook express and when I
clicked on my other one it said it was no longer on the server and had a
line through it so I thought something went wrong and posted again.

As for the software. I am pretty sure I didn't use any third party. I have
downloaded the Intellitype software v5 and installed that but I can't seem
to find what I am looking for. I thought I remembered there being a button
to click to specify based on the application.

Thanks for your help-

-Dan

You may want to try the Version 4 software instead of 5. I'm not sure,
but these might work:

Any idea why 4 would be better than 5? Would they remove a feature?

Thanks-

They actually did remove a few features. Many people do not like
Version 5 and much prefer Version 4. I no longer use them, but I liked
Version 4 better too. Apparently version 5.2 is coming soon and might
have some of the features back in it. They probably added stuff back
from all the feedback they recieved. :)

Thanks for your help. I never heard of them removing so many features.
Looks like I'll give v4 a try until 5.2... Thanks again-
