    Hi,

    I'm using a microsoft intellimouse (USB to keyboard) on an iMac (late 2006), OSX 10.5.8

    I recently connected my mighty mouse to the keyboard and changed some settings on the middle mouse button. Later I reconnected my microsoft mouse, and tried to change the settings back. Now, everything works as per usual, but my middle mouse click-drag scroll doesn't work :confused:

    I can scroll by using the wheel up and down just fine, but if I try to click-drag, nothing happens. Is there any way I can fix this?

    Thanks.

    You mean scroll coasting, where you middle-click then move the cursor up or down to change speed/direction?

    Yes! That's it. It's not working at all anymore.

    I don't think Macs can do that at all. You're sure you were running Mac OS X at the time?

    Go into your System Preferences. Is there an icon in there for Microsoft Mouse? If so, go in there, and you'll be able to get it back.

    If it's not there, you can downlaodthe Intellimouse software.

    Regards,

    My Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 works with OSX when I middle click then move up or down, to vary scrolling speed, without any modifying of my part.
    Snow Leopard 10.6.
