Hi Ray, Hi Barbara, I'll add my 2¢ and suggest that if you have kids, a mouse with a laser light might be the best solution and they come with their own software with driver. A mouse with a laser light is not affect with cookie crumbs, etc.; it's just works where no regular mouse would. :-) Carl ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ray Spitz" <rspitz@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Cc: <aa226@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, June 02, 2003 9:34 AM Subject: [pcductape] Re: mouse troubles > Barbara hi, > Does your mouse have a pushbutton on the side of the mouse ? > We had one like that--pushing that button or holding it in while pressing > the "left" or "righthand" mouse button would sequence/or toggle the mouse > through its various modes- ie; " vertical---horizontal---normal. > It was a pain cause the grandkids were always inadvertently hitting it . > If you have no such button, then since there must be a way to get your mouse > into its modes, perhaps simultaneously pressing left & right button, or > perhaps holding one button down while pressing the other, etc, might , be a > solution.
