I have asked this question four times in four different ways and yours is
the first ever reply I got. For that I thank you. So here I go again to the
best of my ability:
I have a machine with Vista. I have a MS optical mouse with a wheel with
the latest MS drivers. The left button-click is a select (all OK in all
programs); the right button-click is a menu (all OK in all programs), and
the wheel-click is a double-click (all OK in all programs except Office Pro
All my programs - four different Corel programs, Goldwave, IE9, Windows
Mail, MS OneNote 2010, Ency. Britannica, MS Encarta [Eng. Fre. Span.
versions], Danish-English dictionary, MS Works 6, OpenOffice 3.3, etc. - do
what a double-click is supposed to do whenever I click the wheel. However,
in Office Pro 2003 - all components - I have to click the wheel TWICE
because OP2003 recognizes the wheel-click as just a single, ordinary click
much the same as a left button-click. I downloaded a trial version of
Office Pro 2010 and all its components accepted the wheel-click as a
double-click and did what a double-click is supposed to do (like opening a
file or selecting a word).
I add that in all components of my Pro2003 everything, but everything, works
perfectly. I have even approached a MS Office forum [do not remember which
one] and never got a reply. I keep trying to find different words to
explain it but nothing seems to do the trick. The inconvenience is not
sufficient as to make me want to invest hundreds of dollars in a more recent
version of Office as I have OpenOffice already installed if the worse came
to the worst. I think that now it has become simply a nuisance which I
should like to understand if not fix.
Thanks in advance.
