Mices how many buttons on yours?

My 7 button mouse has been playing up, the LHB has decried to be sUPerSeniTive so I was getting clicks when there shouldn't have been and windows moving when I moved the mouse. So I found an older 5 button one .. BUT I really miss the back/forward buttons now  Cry

To be honest, by the time we've removed any from the traps we haven't wanted to inspect them any closer Cheesy

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

I count 10.  LMB/RMB, one to the left of LMB and one to right of RMB, two between the LMB/RMB and one below that which is a modifier of some sort, forward, backwards at the thumb and another button further back, think that's the macro button, not sure.  Just checked the website and it says 11, oh yeah, I can click the wheel.

Had it a few years now after my trusty Logitech G7's LMB switch went funny, can't complain about it really, it does mousey stuff?

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

Most of my mouses have (has?) 2 buttons + scroll-wheel.  On one of them the scroll-wheel doesn't work and that is the most annoying thing ever.  I don't even use the 'third button' function on the scroll wheel so I think 2 buttons is enough for me.

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

I have a few 5 button mice and the rest all have 10 buttons, I couldn't be without the back and forward though and the on the fly dpi changers are always for winners Smiley

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

Whilst we are squeaking about the mice
I always use the traditional Scroll wheel mouse with LC / RC / Scroll / Scroll click
I have no need to use any more
I do have a couple of Microsoft Scrioll Mice with the 2 extra buttons on the sides for Forward + Backward page scrolling, & as they are too sensitive I never got on with them

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

I suspect that being left handed is one reason that I never got on with fancy mice since the extra buttons would normally be in the wrong place for me.
I did look at one of them new 'touch mouse' things without physiscal buttons but with the same functions as a 'normal' 2 + scroll but the price put me off even more than the possibility I wouldn't actually like using it.

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

The one I am currently using is from PCLine PCL-W101, where the scroll wheel subtly lights up in red
I have one connected to the laptop which is as above button wise,
however it has 2 coloured lights that are very bright (Red / Blue) bright enough to show on the ceiling

Re: Mices how many buttons on yours?

I tend to require a new mouse every 3 to 4 years (maybe a bit longer).
I always go for two button + scroll-wheel. I feel comfortable with that arrangement although I will admit to never having tried any mice with more buttons.

Perhaps you might need to buy it a Wheel as it may be slightly over fed Tongue Grin  Cheesy
