Scroll Through Windows Tabs With Right Hand Mouse?
Oct 16, 2013
I want to scroll through tabs on internet browser with right hand mouse alone
I don't want to discuss the specifics why but basically I don't want to use my left hand at all sometimes during certain web browsing sessions.
How do I browse through internet web browser tabs with just right hand mouse? Without having to click on each tab. I just want to use either a button, scroll wheel, or an extension/add on that will make scrolling through tabs only right handed.
I'm having a problem with getting the mouse wheel button to work correctly in 8.1
I've switched to left handed use to alleviate shoulder pain.
Before this I had the mouse and keyboard center installed. I use a cheap USB keyboard and a microsoft USB optical wheel mouse. Configured for the right hand, everything works correctly. The right button is the normal select, the right is context and I configured the wheel button to double click.
When I switch to left hand I lose the wheel button double click. The select / context buttons are properly working, but when I click the wheel it appears to be the same as a context button click. I thought maybe the settings got messed up when I switched the buttons so I tried setting the wheel button to another function (open charms in this case). That works. Switched the wheel button back to double click and it goes back to open context menu.
I uninstalled and re-installed the mouse and keyboard center. That made no difference. Seems like a bug here.
On, this is on a new (mid-april) HP laptop so there is a touchpad that I almost never use because I generally have the mouse, keyboard, and external monitor attached with the lid closed.
For my touchpad I use an unofficial driver (higher version and more tuned than official), which works nicely.
However it also installs some add-on to Control Pane lMouse, which causes about 1 minute delay (of waiting for Mouse window to appear), when I try to run Control Panel Mouse icon (for mouse pointers and acceleration). That add-on is probably new custom tab, however it don't show up, so I don't know. It is probably some DLL loaded at start maybe via Task Scheduler, maybe via system service. (I have already checked more common autoruns - both StartUp folders and also Run registry keys.)
I want to keep the driver, but remove that add-on, what causes delay (by identifying the file and renaming it). What is the best procedure to identify the add-on?
Only just noticed this but have confirmed other PC's exhibit this same behaviour. The tabs on the top line of the browser don't match the order of the preview tabs at the bottom. As you open other sites and open and close tabs sometimes they do manage to line up and sometimes not....
Windows 8. My custom cursor, when i point to text or links the cursor changes from custom to a hand. Windows XP the cursor stayed as is the custom cursor. Is this normal for Windows 8 for the cursor to change like that, or can I change something??
except it works in 32 bit but not in 64 bit windows 8.1 update fresh install. Have checked the apps notification switches in PC settings and they are all on. The one I miss is the email notification telling me I have mail which appears to be enabled but test messages from gmail dont trigger notifcations in right hand top side of desktop.
One notification that does work is when I insert a USB it asks what to do with removable devices but thats the only notification I get.
This maybe fall under customization but here goes. I'd like to be able to set default tabs for when i open task manager in windows 8. when i open task manager, default is process and i'd like to change that to details. I almost don't use process and I always find myself jumping to details and services, is there anyway to do this?

I turned my laptop right off last night (I usually just put it into sleep mode) and now, since rebooting this morning, I can't get the menu to slide in from the right hand side. Instead, the Power and Search icons are showing at the top of the start screen along side my name and avatar.
I've recently had to have a new hard drive but the menu has been working OK until now.
Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to get this back?
I love how Metro IE11 works now in Windows 8.1. I was using a reddit app, opened an article, and it spawn a separate window for the IE browser to read a link. Works great. But one day, when it launched the IE browser, I was hearing a video that was completely unrelated to the link.
So I bring up the tabs and I had like 50 tabs open! When I close the IE browser that spawns from reddit or from a newsreader like News Bento, I just drag the app to the bottom of the screen to put away IE. That didn't terminate the tabs. So it was tedious to close each tab independently.
When I get to the part in the Windows 8 installer that it tells me what needs to come to my attention, instead of opening a little browser inside of the program as I guess it's trying to do, it opens up 2 tabs in whatever browser is my default. This would be fine if the buttons in the web pages still modified the actual installer, but they don't and therefore the installer is effectively stopped.
I'm trying to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Key word: Upgrade. I would like to avoid re-installing the OS altogether, but I can do that by myself if it comes to that.
Here's what it looks like:
I read on another thread that making IE the default would fix it, but I tried that and it did not work.
i have a "microsoft wireless mouse 2000" and my pc is running win 8 pro. most of the times after i resume from hibernation the scroll speed is insane! moving the scroll wheel 1mm causes for example the browser to scroll over one page! in scroll settings it shows "roll wheel one click to scroll 3 lines", no matter what i set this to it still scrolls excesivly.. i need a full system reboot to regain control over scroll speed. this was never an issue with win7.
I just installed Windows 8 last night. The start screen will only scroll if I left-click and drag the bar at the bottom. clicking the arrows won't work and neither will using my arrow keys to go from app to app (once it hits the side of the screen it goes out of view but the screen doesn't pan to follow it). I am also unable to click the minimize button to see the apps so that i can create column headers for my tile collections. I installed Windows 8 on my laptop a couple of weeks ago and don't have this issue.
Is there a way to activate or create a two fingers scroll on desktop apps, like for a PDF-Editing Software?Because I want to edit a PDF document and when I want to scroll I have to close the edit modus in the Software first.On an Ipad there is this feature. You can edit a PDF file and if you want to scroll, you have to use two fingers.
Is there an app to create this multitouch gesture or to activate it on windows 8?
Okay so i have a windows 8 and some tabs won't open sorta, they open but when i click on them they won't show up on the screen or anything, i've tried restarting the computer and sometimes even redownloading the programs and still nothing. The tabs are faded out like their opened but clicking on them does nothing, whats wrong with my computer??
I recently switched from OE to WLM because I purchased a new laptop (Win 8.1). I incorrectly assumed, since OE is about 8 years old, WLM would be far more advanced in every aspect.
A huge annoyance is: whenever I need to find a folder in Storage Folders, instead of keying the first letter of the folder I seek, as with OE, I must scroll down to find it. To make matters worse; all of the Storage Folders are expanded to reveal the sub folders by default. So, as I scroll down, each time, I must manually collapse each expanded folder.
Any way to cause WLM Storage Folders to behave like OE.
My wifi on my laptop keeps acting up. at a random time the wifi bar in the lower right hand side turns to a yellow exclamation mark over it, after hovering over it it says 'limited'. Usually if i just turn off the wifi then immediately on again it will sort it out.
Can't work out if its a driver issue, my isp or a windows 8.1 issue. The laptop i have is an assus k53sv. the driver i have installed is 'Qualcomm Atheros AR9002WB-1NG'.
I've recently noticed a Windows update that changes the way you close apps, amongst a number of other things.
What it was:
What it is now:
This update was unticked in the 'Update and Recovery' section. Every other update had a checkbox ticked, this one didn't.
Other changes bought along by installing this update:
- New applications in the 'Apps' section of the Start menu are now highlighted with a greybox. - Shut down options now in the start menu (and search, I'm not sure)
One extra thing that seems to be around depending on... something.
This one's related with Chrome. Usually when you start typing in the url box, your search terms are cut off with a rounded border going around. This box has disappeared with the latest update, but I have seen this happening in earlier versions of Windows.
I bought the Asus Zenbook Touch (ux31a-bhi5t11) yesterday, and the 2 finger scrolling worked fine at first, but a couple hours later it just stopped working. I can scroll using the touch screen, but not the touch pad now. It's brand new, and I haven't touched any of the settings, so I don't know why it would just quit.
have been using AMD Drivers 13.4, recently tried the new 13.8 Beta drivers, but Catalyst only showed tabs for CPU settings, nothing for Graphics Cards, have tried a clean install and a overwrite of the software, but still comes up the same, have finally got back to using the 13.4 Drivers but only after a lot of hassle.
This new sync tab feature in IE11 is handy. But it's also a bit annoying. I have about 7 or 8 PCs I use frequently and I re-install the OS all the time. So I end up with orphan machines that appear in IE 11 sync tabs and I can't seem to find a way to remove them. I also noticed that these tabs mysteriously disappeared on some of my machines.
