I'm using windows 8.1, 2 Screens detected and using the feature extend, however when I slide my mouse to the right it will not move to the next screen like it did on Windows 7, instead it opens the menu (the Windows+C menu).
If I use the search function, not in a browser, but in the OS itself, it will bring up a Bing page of results. This page fills the entire screen and has no apparent way to close it. This also happens when I open a PDF using the native Windows 8 reader - the pdf opens to a full page with no apparent way to minimize or close it.
That's just the beginning of the problem. I have been just ignoring what is on that full screen by opening the desktop and just going about my work (hate the tiles, but that's a different story). However, from time-to-time, when I'm moving the mouse cursor and doing nothing but moving the mouse cursor, that full screen Bing page or PDF will just pop to the front unbidden. I can obviously reopen the desktop again, but this is a hassle, as this page-behind just keeps popping up and interupting my work. Worse, once it happens, it seems to happen again and again as I'm making the first mouse movement after moving back to the desktop. I literally have to open the desktop again and again 5 or 6 times before that document behind stops popping up. When I TRY to reproduce this, I can't. I can't seem to make the document behind pop up just by moving the mouse - but when I don't want it to happen, it does.
Just got a surface Pro 2 for work. In addition to the keyboard I need a mouse. normally a cheap USB mouse would do. however, I also have one of those 4G wireless network USB dongles that takes the only USB port.
Can any of the other ports be used for a mouse? I think it also has Bluetooth, but ideally don't rely on a mouse needing a battery.
unrelated to this, how does one use the camera properly in desktop mode? All I read it is using the cloud? what? I just want to access the pictures I take somehow. and can the camera zoom at all?
Over the past three weeks or so, there have been probably seven times my wireless USB Nexus Silent Mouse has not been recognized on cold computer startups (usually morning). Windows 8 (Pro x64) throws up a message that a USB device wasn't recognized, and I don't see a mouse cursor. Unplugging and replugging the USB mouse's stick, which is in a port on the front of the computer, solves it. The mouse driver is up to date, changing USB ports hasn't made a difference and the batteries are fine (and have been changed).
Recently I bought a new lap top and installed Windows 8.1
I have an issue with the Mouse/s. I tried 2 different mouses and I encountered the same problem with both of them, so I know it's not a mouse problem. Note that both of these mouses work perfectly on my other/older/Windows 7 and previously Windows XP lap top, so it's not a mouse issue. It's either a driver problem or something else.
I have tried all 3 USB ports I got and it does the same thing.
When I turn on the lap top, if the mouse is plugged or unplugged and I plug it afterwards, it doesn't work. If however I turn on the lap top, plug in the mouse, and the restart the lap top, when it restarts the mouse works fine all up until the lap top is turned off again. And then to get it to work again I have to turn on the lap top, with the mouse plugged, or plug the mouse after it's turned on, then restart the lap top, and then the mouse works fine.
Apparently, this is not very convenient. It's a major inconvenience.
p.s I never had this issue before on any other PC computer or lap top, whether it was Windows XP or Windows 7. So it's either a Windows 8.1 issue or the new lap top issue, or a driver issue.
I got a new mouse a couple of days back, it's one of those fancy Razer mouses with 12 buttons on the side that is used for gaming and stuff. I have an issue when I try to use usb 3.0 instead of 2.0 ports. ( my tower only has like 2 2.0 ports so I try to use those for other things ) I am trying not to buy a usb hub before somebody says it
On games ( fullscreen or Windowed ) quickslot controls where you can use the numbers on your mouse I can't use the 3.0 port as it won't recognize the side buttons but it will on the 2.0 port.
I am guessing this is a driver problem but I am unsure. Neither the native mouse driver for Windows nor the fancy Cloud Synapse driver 2.0 works.
Every single time I reboot my system my mouse fails to register in the system. I have to physically unplug it and plug it back in for Windows 8.1 to register it. Once I do that I have literally no issues at all..... How to fix this so it doesn't happen every single time I reboot?
Ok I finished up my PC Build i74930 K Asus Rampage IV Black Ed mobo 16Gb DDR 3 ram Samsung 840 EVO ssd 2 TB WD HDD
My mouse or Keyboard or both suddenly without warning will stop functioning. Sometimes one or the other sometimes both. I tried running a game for a small bench test and it dropped the mouse and keyboard so I had to use the reset button to get out.
On PC, has a problem with the PS2 keyboard and mouse staying on after the PC is turned off...the lights are still on.
The only thing different when I had it was the keyboard and muse and the OS....I use a logitech G510 and a Razer DeathAdder, both USB and the OS was 7 Ultimate 64 bit. My sons system is running 7 Pro 64 bit and using an old OEM HP keyboard/mouse.
I installed the 8.1 patch today and shortly after the mouse disappeared from my screen completely (I have a laptop with a touch pad). I tried going into task manager as just going in and cancelling used to solve this problem before installing the patch but this no longer works. I also tried rebooting (switching off then on again) but this didn't work and the computer didn't even reboot; just reopened my session exactly where I left off even when I waited ten minutes before switching the on switch again. I have temporarily solved this problem with a usb mouse borrowed from a family member but my family member needs it back (and I also would prefer to use the touchpad).
I should add here that I didn't want to do the installation when it started happening and while I meant to press the "default settings" option, I think I went with "customise settings" by accident. I just said ok to everything as I had a deadline and needed computer access. Could I have pressed "turn touch pad off" and if so how do I change this?
Every now and then my mouse will freeze. If I turn off the mouse then back on it starts working again. Have this happen with Bluetooth mouse?
I have used this mouse on two different computers and both do the same thing. I'm thinking it is the mouse since it's doing it on my desktop with a Bluetooth dongle and my Asus T100 with built in Bluetooth.
Installed windows 8.1 preview last night and after installing i get stuck at the lock screen, cant click or punch keys to log in. Since the powers that be decided to change how you boot into safe mode is my only option to format?
I was having the issue where windows 8 randomly disconnects bluetooth devices, so i tried to remove then reinstall it. When trying to remove, after a while, it comes up with a message saying "Unable to remove device".
So I go straight to device manager and uninstall my mouse from there. it works. I go back to the windows 8 show bluetooth devices menu and the mouse is still there. I hit remove and it works.
Now when i restart my computer its BACK in both device manager and bluetooth device menu. I just want it off and gone.
The only thing that has changed is that I upgraded my OS recently.
I have an 2.4 GHz Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse. Originally after the upgrade, the left button caused right clicks and vice versa. I found a workaround by changing the Windows 8 settings to "Right Primary Button" while in the control panel, the device is configured for the left hand. If I select "Left..." and right respectively, I get the reverse. The scroll wheel also does nothing when clicked. Sometimes when I read articles I click it so I can move my mouse up and down to scroll the page without pushing any keys.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse driver and HID driver with no luck.
I can install and use any of two bluetooth mice (Dell PU705 Travel mouse or Samsung S Action mouse ET-MP900D) on my Lenovo Ideapad Z710 laptop. This works fine with either mouse for an average of 20 minutes (varies) then it loses contact with the laptop and its back to using the touchpad. When I go to the Bluetooth settings page -- "Manage Bluetooth Devices", the control suddenly reappears on entering the page with no further action from me. The recovery of the device like this happens on no other page, to my knowledge. I have a phone and a tablet paired with the laptop on bluetooth and they stay paired. I have installed the latest Lenovo bluetooth drivers with no improvement. It appears that the mice are still connected but not responding to the laptop until they get a small 'kick' when I return to the Bluetooth settings page. New, full strength batteries are installed.
I have a lenovo G505 laptop running windows 8.1 and i am having issues trying to install my bluetooth USB adapter, a belkin F8T017.
I have tried installing the drivers but it doesn't recognise the device during the installation, and when I check device manager it shows as a HID compliant Mouse, i have tried everything i can find on google, tried installing the vista drivers in compatibility mode, and repeatedly uninstalled the device in DM, even tried to update the driver software and pointing to the correct drivers but as the drivers are old it keeps saying the drivers installed are the most up to date (even though they are wrong) it does not recognise it as a bluetooth adapter, and it works in my fiancee's laptop and my desktop which both run win7 ultimate.
I've tried three mice, Logitech G400, Razer Deathadder 3.5 and a random Logitech wireless but the problem remains.
I haven't found any coincidents when i run a specific program or game. Sometimes it goes a day or two without incident and sometimes multiple times a day. I have run several Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast scans but they did not find anything.
I have also ran a "sfc /scannow" and the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" to fix. I have tried the current drivers for every mouse, tried without drivers and tried to uninstall all drivers all let Windows install them itself.

I want to know how to get smooth scrolling in metro app with mouse wheel. I'hv seen some videos of windows 8 it has really smooth - fluid scrolling with touch. I have smooth scoll in start but not in metro apps.
On a new custom built desktop, running Windows 8, I am having the annoying problem with the mouse lagging or sticking on the screen. It can do this differently at times, depending on what program I am in. For instance, on the desktop a few moments ago, just running the mouse pointer back and forth slowly across the screen, it would tend to stick for a couple of seconds when in line with the icons that are on the right side of the screen. As if there was an imaginary line stopping it. In Internet Explorer, it did not want to go to the upper right area where the favorites and home icons are. But at times, the mouse is perfect.
I've upgraded my video card drivers right from the manufacturer's website. It as if something runs in the background intermittently and hangs the mouse for a second or two.

I have a new Dell Inspiron 2350 windows 8.1 for the last week or so the usb wireless keyboard and mouse do not work when the system is booted or after coming out of deep sleep mode. I have to unplug the usb dongle and plug it in again for them to work.
I have already checked the powering saving settings for these devices, and it is disabled. There is no setting in the bios that I can see which would cause this. I have re-installed the drivers. I have tried different USB port. Dell have even replaced the keyboard and mouse and batteries, same problem.
I have a Windows 8.1 Lenovo notebook and a Toshiba Satellite Windows 7 laptop, and a mouse.
Well, the mouse has been working fine for 4 months, but suddenly, the mouse has stopped working in my Toshiba laptop. As I didn't know how to fix it, and as Toshiba laptop was full of crap, I've just formatted its HDD and made a clean install of Windows 8.1 and updated everything.
After that, I've plugged the mouse in and the same error: it connects and disconnects all the time. Sometimes, if I'm in the Device Manager refreshing the devices, mysteriously it start to work, but just for a few minutes. Sometimes, and just sometimes, the Device Manager shows that there's an unknown device connected to a USB port that is not working. The error code is 43.
That mouse works perfectly in my other notebook, the lenovo. I've connected a different mouse to the Toshiba and it works perfectly, in any port. So that makes me say this:
-The mouse is not broken, cause it works in my other laptop
-Toshiba's USB ports work nice cause any other device I connect works seamlessly
-After a clean install, it can't be a software problem
I made the mistake of buying this mouse, and luckily I managed to avoid using the Synapse 2.0 software that they pushed via Windows Update at me when I plugged the mouse in.
However it still installed drivers and apparently the mouse uses this .dll called 'RzCoinstaller.dll', whatever that is.
I still have an old Logitech bluetooth mouse I was trying to replace with this mouse... however I am considering chucking out the Razer due to Razer's hardware and software being rather overpriced low quality garbage and I worry about the drivers effects on my computer given the datamining scare with Synapse 2.0.
I intend to possibly replace it with a Steelseries Sensei or a Corsair Vengance M95 mouse, but how do I uninstall the Razer mouse safely without affecting the Logitech mouse? Cause apparently if a mouse still uses one of the drivers it will leave that driver alone if you uninstall via Device Manager?
I am using a gaming mouse which has a maximum setting of 3200 DPI. I have it set to 3200 DPI. The game I am playing has a slider to adjust mouse sensitivity and that slider is maxed out. With that said, the sensitivity/speed is still too slow for my liking.
Is there anyway that I can speed up the mouse sensitivity/speed in game.
