Mouse Trouble


I Am Not Sure How To Say This. On My Lab Top It Seems That When I Select Something With My Mouse It Selects Everything Before That As Well. Does This Make Sense? I Try An Click On A Pic And It Clicks On Like The One I Want And 5 Others, Any Ideas?

Is your Shift button stuck? Holding Shift will make you select multiple things at once.

You might check your 'accessibility options' in the Control Panel. Make sure none of those boxes are checked.

Note that tapping the mouse window counts as a click. tapping it before you move may count as a drag hence it selects everything in its way

1 - Reboot your computer. This fixes many of Windows errors.
2 - Try another mouse if you have one available.
3 - Hook up another keyboard if you have one.

Do you have a mouse or a touch pad? All the laptops that I have seen have a touch pad.
Of couse, a mouse can be plugged into a USB jack.
I use the touch pad most of the time, but use a mouse from time to time also!
Also, which OS and brand of computer do you have? It makes a difference

Hmmmmm! Would you suppose that the coffee did him in? Or as we have heard nothing more from the OP, that he is still struggling with his mouse?
