Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 4.0 - How to remap tilt-wheel

Q: Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 4.0 - How to remap tilt-wheel

I have the latest IntelliPoint drivers (5.5), but there is still no way of re-mapping the tilt wheel functions at all. It would be great for games if i could remap to arrow keys for example, because horizontal scrolling isnt recognised in many programs, or ANY games.

Please someone help if they have any idea...

I bought a new wireless mouse 2.0 keyboard combo thinking I could customize the tilt wheel to do the job of the back/forward buttons you find on the sides of some mice. But you can't. the tilt switch can only be assigned one function and that's horizontal scrolling. Does anyone know of any way to hack this so I can assign custom functions to the tilt?


I've scoured the web in search of a solution but with no luck. This is surprising considering the back/forward mouse shortcuts are the most used shortcuts in a browser. Amazingly there doesnt seem to be a single utility designed for customizing mouse wheels or tilt switches. The closest I got was an extension for Firefox turning the tilt into back/forward, but it's so bug ridden it's unusable.

Your wireless mouse and keyboard should have come with a software CD, which should make it work. Did you install it? I have one also and it works great.

My optical mouse recently died and I couldn't find one like it with the 2 extra buttons on the left and right. I use these extensively when browzing on the web or folders in explorer. So I bought a new wireless mouse 2.0 thinking I could customize the tilt wheel to do the same thing. But you can't. the tilt switch can only be assigned one function and that's horizontal scrolling. Does anyone know of any way to hack this so I can assign custom functions to the tilt? Thanks.

Hi All

Just got a M$ Wireless mouse with a tilt wheel.

Firstly the wheel works for un and down but does scroll left to right as it should. But my main problem is that on my old mouse I could move backwards and forwards on webpages with the extra buttons on the mouse. Is there anyway I can get this tilt wheel to do the same.

Maybe you can program the mouse from somewhere but I really can't work it out.

Any help would be great.

I was given a USB intellimouse explorer, that didn't seem to work properly and now doesn't work at all. The problem that I have is that the red LED that lights up the camera piece doesn't work any more. if I replace the LED do you think I would have to replace it with one of the same colour?, or just use any colour?
the only thing that I can think of that I can do is to take the one from the back of the mouse that works without a problem and then put it where the other one is.
Any suggestions are welcome, as my cordless mouse is really annoying me!

I've had my computer (Dell Latitude Core i7 x64) running Windows 10 32-bit for over a year and have been using the same mouse for many years, as far back as 2 computers possibly. In the past week the mouse will disconnect and it will not come back on if I unplug and reconnect it or switch ports. The only thing that will restore it is turning the computer off and then on. Any ideas what could be causing this?

It seems like maybe it happened after a recent automatic update..

My MS Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 has detents in the scroll wheel operation which cause the scroll to jump two or three lines with every use. However, my MS Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 has a smooth continuous scroll wheel operation which is much preferred. Both mice are wired USB devices.

Is it possible to change the Explorer Mouse to scroll continuously without detents or do I have to just give up and buy the other mouse? I recall reading somewhere that this detent could be changed or removed or maybe I read wrongly.

I know, us Netscape users are a vanishing species, but....

Bought a new MS Intellimouse Explorer Wireless mouse with Tilt/Scroll Wheel. Very nice, except the scroll wheel magnifies instead of scrolls but ONLY in Netscape (I'm using Netscape 7.1). I was told elsewhere that someone had this problem with IE and fixed it by installing the Intellimouse v. 4 software (current version is v. 5), but that didn't make any difference.

Can ANYONE help???

Mouse is 5-6 years old: "erratic movements"

This USB mouse runs off a 4-port BUS-powered USB Hub. Within the last week or so, the mouse jumps around erratically. I've tried it attached directly to my Sony notebook's USB with the same effect, so it does not seem to be the problem--though I am considering getting a hub with external power.

Any idea? I've got a new Logitech G3 ordered, so I can say goodbye to it if I have to...

Does anyone know if microsoft will ever release a Serial version of their IntelliMouse Optical? Yes, it's sad, I only have a serial port, and nobody seems to make mice that are compatiable with it(they're all USB and/or PS/2).

Hi all, my computer is all fine and dandy now. Yea! Except for one thing.. I just went out and bought an Intellimouse optical and I installed it. It works and all except the two little side buttons. In the quickstart guide it lets me choose the mouse as the Intellimouse Optical but it only tells about it. Then in the Intellipoint software v4.0 it doesn't have the option to choose intellimouse opt only intellimouse. I'm thinking of downloading v4.1 but it has LOTS of bad reviews. What do i do?

I bought Intellimouse optical yesterday. I installed the software. I prefer using Netcape
rather then the explorer. My mouse doesn't work that has the back and the forward on my
mouse. I clicked on explorer and It works. Which version of Netscape will I have to use for the
back and forward?

Thanks a lot,

A:Microsoft Intellimouse optical problem?

I have a Wireless Intellimous Explorer and all 5 buttons work in every program that uses a back function. A little advice: I don't use the forward button much, but do use the back. I changed the forward button to function as the close button... because I use that one a lot... works great. Back to your mouse... it is possible it doesn't work with netscape because microsoft made it... and you know how microsoft is. It really should work though, even if you are using netscape. Try upgrading to the latest version and maybe even upgrade your intellimouse software, if there is an upgrade. Also, make sure you have the correct mouse selected in the settings of your software. If you have the wrong one selected the regular left and right buttons should work without software because they are basic, standard functions.

Just recently, I've been having trouble with my mouse.

Sometimes, when I single click something, it double clicks it instead. For example, when I want to press the back button, it goes back two pages, even if I click once.

And other times, when I try clicking a link, it doesn't respond. And it takes me a few clicks to actually go to it.

When I open up dropdown menus, whenever I click it once, it goes back up. It takes a few times for me to click it and it stays.

I have no clue what the problem is. It just started happening.

Is there any way I can fix it or any small little tests I can do to check it?

Hey all,

Long time listener, first time caller!

I apologize if this is in the wrong subsection.

I swapped out mice from a Logitech USB optical to a MS Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 (favorite mouse of all time).

The mouse freezes after the pc has been asleep for a while. Disconnecting then reconnecting the mouse via usb resets it and it works; however its quite frustrating to have to do this every time. My suspicion is a faulty driver, but I've tried to reinstall the drivers to no avail. I've also tried disabling hybrid sleep and usb suspend without success.

The logitech worked without any issues.

Thanks in advance and happy holidays!

I reboot the computer again and start disabling services until I narrow the problem down to PnP. I turn Plug n Play off, reboot, no more problem. But, of course, now I don't have any PnP. This is a problem for me as one would expect, so I turn the service back on and start unplugging things from the back of my computer. As soon as I unplugged the IntelliMouse, it worked perfectly again. This seemed odd as I've never heard of a mouse of all things causing this sort of trouble, so I plug a different mouse in and the computer works perfectly.

So I've pretty much come to the conclusion that my IntelliMouse would be the problem. However, it's a good mouse, and I don't want to put it away if I can avoid doing such. Anybody ever run into a problem similar to this and know any kind of way of fixing things without having to replace the mouse?

I have been trying to remove my Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer from my computer. I thought this would be easy but has turned out to be impossible. I removed the receiver to the mouse from my usb port and rebooted. Trouble I'm having is I can't reboot. When the computer starts up all I get is my graphic card info and that's it. I have to plug the receiver in before the startup sequence will continue. Intellipoint software installed, not installed, no difference. Any suggestions?

I purchased my Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 about 2 years ago and had no problems with it working. But, about 1 year ago, I reformatted my hard drive. Now, when I go to change my mouse pointer from the usual white arrow to a 3D Bronze arrow or some other pointer option, it states that the particular pointer option is missing or corrupt! So, I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it from the Microsoft web site. But, it still is acting the same way!?! Does anyone have a sollution to my problem? I would appreciate it! Thanks.

I have Intellimouse Explorer mouse and am using it with Windows Xp on my new Abit 865chipset system (I have latest BIOS). It works fine except that speed often kicks down after system has been up a while. I have two monitors hooked up and I have mouse set to a high speed so that I can move cursor from one monitor to another without having to move mouse all over keypad too much.

Anyhow, it works fine after bootup but sometimes will slow down to regular slow speed after it has been on a few hours. I looked at Mouse control thing and acceleration and everything seems to be set in place.

The only way I have found to fix this is to reboot. I'm wondering if anyone has a fix for this?

For search open Explorer and go to the Windows\Inf folder. Locate the srchasst.inf file. Right click it and select Install. You'll need your XP CD or the files from the I386 folder. (This fix will require you to have your Win XP CD).

The Windows\Inf folder is a hidden folder. You can adjust your Explorer Folder Options (View tab) to Show hidden files and folders. You can also click Start, Run and enter %SystemRoot%\Inf to open directly to the Inf folder.

I have Intellimouse Explorer optical mouse from MS on NT4 system. The problem is with two side buttons (fourth and fifth), after a while they stop working. Their functions restore after reboot. If I try to re-enter settings using systerm utility, it usually does not work before reboot.

I have the same mouse and have never had any trouble in NT 4 with it.

Well, wait - I had one problem. I turned off the mouse icon in the system tray and my settings (double click for pusing the wheel in) stopped working. Do you have the icon turned on?

You say "after a while"... what does that mean? Are you sure it is based on time? It is more likely a software issue - you are running something else that is killing the mouse driver. You can test this by booting up and not doing anything - just let the machine sit for a few hours.

The red light inside keeps turning on and off mysteriously and I suddenly can't move the mouse pointer anymore until it turns on again. It does very frequently now. Does this mean that the optical mouse has already gone bad and I have to replace it with another one or is there a way I fix it?

Im using a microsoft wireless mouse wheel to scroll through web pages on IE9 and win 7.

When i restart my laptop, the speed is back up to full when i scroll, but when i check in control panel >mouse settings, the speed shows that its still set to the lowest setting. I move the slider, click apply and it works again.

Anyone got any ideas on how i can get my mouse wheel speed to be consistent between reboots?

A:Microsoft mouse wheel speed goes back to super fast after reboot

Did you right click on the desktop and select personalize, then in the left column select mouse pointer, there is a tab for wheel that will allow you to select how many lines for the wheel and other attributes for the mouse. If you have tried that, see if the manufacturer of your mouse has software that can adjust what the mouse does.

I suggest you to install the XP driver in compatibility mode and check if it helps.
Follow these steps:
1. Right-click on the installation file and select properties.
2. Now click on the compatibility tab.
3. Under compatibility mode, check “Run this program in compatibility mode for”.
4. From the drop down menu, select Windows XP(service pack 2).
5. Click Apply and then click OK.

Hi. Very new in this forum. Glad if you would be able to offer any help.
I've had this problem for some time now and it has been getting worse and worse.

Explorer seems to randomly freeze making all the processes super slow. I can still work inside the open applications, but saving any of the open files takes forever.
When I hover the cursor over the taskbar it is a spinning disk. The only way to recover is to restart the computer. I can't find a pattern to these freezes. Sometimes it happens immediately after restarting, sometimes I can work for days with no incident.


A:Explorer randomly freezes, slows computer to a halt, spinning wheel.

Hello rainok and welcome to Seven Forums.

First thing I'd suggest is running a full scan with your anti-virus of choice. Malware likes to hook itself into Explorer. Even if your full scan comes back clean, I'd suggest running some additional free scans because no anti-malware product will be 100% effective 100% of the time. (If there was such a product we'd all be using it. ) Some of the recommended free products are Malwarebytes, ESET Online Scanner, SuperAntispyware, and Comodo Cleaning Essentials.

After checking for malware you could also install a fresh copy of Windows Explorer by following these steps:

1. From the desktop, open Task Manager by either typing taskmgr.exe in the Start Menu Search Bar, pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc, Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Right-Clicking on the taskbar and selecting Start Task Manager. Then click on the Processes tab.
2. Highlight explorer.exe by clicking on it one time and then click on the End Process button (lower right).
3. You should get a prompt asking "Do you want to end explorer.exe" so click the End Process button again.
4. All desktop icons and the taskbar will disappear. This is normal.
5. Task Manager should still be open. (If it's not, follow Step 1 above to reopen Task Manager.) Click on File (upper left corner) and then click on New Task (Run...).
6. Type in explorer.exe and click on OK. A fresh copy of Windows Explorer will be installed. Your desktop icons and taskbar should reappear within a few seconds.

Hi there,

I recently migrated my OS to an SSD using Samsung's included migration software. After the migration, everything worked great except that I now have the "thinking" mouse cursor permanently, starting about 15 seconds after startup.

I stopped all services and the spinning wheel went away, so I narrowed it down to one of those (and further to one of the many "Microsoft" services), but I can't for the life of me figure out which one. Is there a way to repair them all without doing a full windows reinstall? Or, is there another option I'm not aware of?

Appreciate any help/advice!

Does anyone know where I can download a [full] copy of Full Tilt! and Full Tilt! 2? The closest I have come are some demos at various places. It is a shame that Maxis' games don't work on Windows 7. I wish that they did because I could play Marble Drop on my tablet PC then. I think that it would be interesting to play that game with the pen. I would imagine that playing Pinball with the tablet pen would be quite a challenge. Fortunately, my tablet PC is a laptop with a screen that swivels and folds down into slate made (which is how I use it most of the time). Because the laptop mode, it has a keyboard and a touchpad. These (though mores, the keyboard than the touchpad) would make playing Pinball doable (since I do not believe that Pinball's controls can be mapped to mouse buttons.

I was wondering is there any way to do some adjustment in the Viewsonic as well.

About the new monitor(Lg) should I just let Win xp detect it or should I use the driver that came with the monitor

hi. i just bought a new logitech lx7 cordless mouse. it has a scroll wheel that can tilt. i want to be able to switch between tabs in firefox by tilting the wheel. there is no option or shortcut in the help menu. i was wondering if anyone knew how to do it. i am running vista, if that matters. i saw a way to do it through ubuntu, but i dont use linux. so if any one has any idea that would be great.

so far this has been my only windows 7 RAGE yet, so overall not bad.

However, W7 likes to automatically install device drivers at start up, and this is preventing me from installing my ati drivers on a clean slate.

Yes, I have tried turning off the automatic updates, and the problem persists. I even turned it off from the Group Policy Editor and the damn thing still insists on installing its filth on my machine.

I've also tried unplugging from the internet and rebooting and it still installs, so the default driver must be stored locally.

Someone suggested entering the task manager on startup and disabling the process, but it is impossible for me to get there in time.

Any ideas? I'm tilting pretty hard at this point.

Hello Gavin, Welcome to TSF!

This sounds like the download is corrupt...I suggest that you uninstall the original download and get it again from the website.
If it is a large file, perhaps using a Download Manager might help.

Kind Regards,

I am having the same problem I think as you did. This is my error message,

I deleted the old file and then tried to download from the Full Tilt Site three times, but I got the same message. Now I can't play the game: eek: Help if you can. Thanks!

Hi all,
About a week ago I accidentally tilted a webpage differently than the default way, so when I open a webpage, it is tilted differently that usual. I would like to get it back to the way it was before. When I maximize the page, it is fine, but not before maximizing it.

I have an MSI Wind 123 netbook and, for some odd reason, MSI put the Fn key to the left of the Ctrl key on the far left hand side of the bottom row. This is a real nuisance.

Can anyone tell me how to swap functionality of the two keys, so it is consistent with my other keyboards?

Thanks in advance.

My up arrow key is broken, I didn't keep it. And placing a new one in it's place doesn't seem to work.

How can I remap one of my useless keys to an up arrow key?

A:Remap key?

Remapping Keys and Buttons

If you like you can "compile" the script as an exe so it will work on machines that don't have AutoHotKey installed. The hotkey sits in the task tray. To get rid of it you just click Exit from the Tray Icon Menu. Also you can use "#IfWinActive" directive so that the hotkey is only in effect when certain windows are active. But in your case you probably want it on all the time.

My friend had installed windows XP onto his computer twice. Because of this it gave the option to choose between the 2 identical versions everytime you started up. I fixed this by going into system and selecting one of the versions of windows and unchecking the 2 boxes that bring that screen up. I believe I choose the wrong box. Now after restarting the computer I only can get to this screen:

Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem.
Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware.
Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information.

I can get to DOS through the dell diagnostics disk and am wondering if I can tell it to go through the other windows and how I could do that.

A:Remap my XP

Use one of these boot disks to get into XP and then remove the entry from boot.ini (not in msconfig--go to Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Startup button > Edit button.).).

XP Sysboot CD Image

Or try booting with the XP disk in the drive but don't press any keys.

I got one of these netbooks with windows 7 ultimate 64bit. the keyboard is of course extremely poorly laid out. Does anyone know if theres a way to remap a key? I'd like to take a specific key like the backslash (in the worst possible place) and make it be a shift now. anything like that?

You may try this tool: The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator
Not 100% sure you can remap the Shift key though.

Ack I ve had running tilt full safe CPU fan mode. in so many problems with this damn thing it s ticking me off CPU fan running full tilt in safe mode. I recently got a bunch of viruses cleaned off this computer a month or two ago and for awhile everything seemed dandy though it s seen faster days But I CPU fan running full tilt in safe mode. wanted to run a chkdsk to see if it could clean some problems up maybe get it running a little less sluggish But when I got into safe mode the CPU fan started running full tilt No real explanation either I checked to see if anything was taking up a large amount of CPU and there was nothing System idle process was almost always at and only the bare essentials were running I also notice the CPU runs louder on most games lately even on low def Windows games performance isn t that badly effected though it doesn t behave that way when I m doing normal stuff in fact right now it s perfectly quiet I just don t understand why it s doing that in safe mode I ve scanned my computer in normal mode with Avast ESET MBAM and Super Anti Spyware with results In safe mode I ve only scanned with ESET so far since I was concerned about leaving it running like that any longer still no results I did still run chkdsk before I restarted as well Could it be Malware Or should I just be looking at old hardware gone bad Hugh One of these days I m going to reformat all the computers in this house at once I swear

A:CPU fan running full tilt in safe mode.

Fan bearings go bad...IMO, typical noises emanating from a system are likely to be fan or hard drive related.

Safe mode should have no logical consequence on fan function...are you saying that this perceived increased activity...doesn't ever happen in normal mode?

I just got an X1 Yoga today, and sometime the start menu just opens by itself which is super annoying. I found it seemed to happen when I tilted the screen back and forth (even if I wasnt pressing any buttons). I updated to the latest software. Has anyone else had this problem and can someone please help me? Thanks

A:Start Menu Windows 10 opening by itself when tilt ...

Chiming in - sometimes my start menu and desktop will just flash back and forth for a while, seemingly without rhyme or reason but mostly when the system is rotated flat for notetaking. I'd love to know how to make that stop.

Hey all, I own a Samsung ATIV 700t tablet PC. This PC has two physical buttons on the upper left corner- one serves as the power/sleep button and one is an auto-rotate on/off toggle. I used to own an Asus Slate, and it had a physical button that you could press that would open the Windows on screen keyboard.
Is it possible to remap this auto-rotate toggle to an on screen keyboard button? I have googled extensively, and the closest thing I've come across has been KeyTweak which is outlined here: The Best Key Remapper for Windows
however I don't think this does exactly what I need it to do. Perhaps if I knew the keyboard button mapping it would work.
This isn't a critical issue, it just that a keyboard toggle would be much more useful to me than an auto rotate toggle...
Thanks in advance.
