old news, but a lifesaver!
Try it, it works!
you would have to click once, not click and move the mouse, it either has to be on a link, or a tab
It works on all modern browsers, but not with all mice. Some roller-mice do not work for some reason I have not yet discovered. I suspect the owner may have installed some custom software for his mouse, but I never took the time to verify.What brand and type of mouse do you have? Do you have any mouse-related software installed?
I'll be jiggered, I never knew that, and I've been using computers since the late seventies..... This shit you learn on google+
Logitech M705. I've also got Logitech setpoint software running, I'm guessing that has superseded the default.
Frustrates me to no end whenever I watch someone using their computer and they don't do this. :)
HOLY SHIT! Thank you so much for this. Can't believe I've never known about this >///<
I have 2 mice and that button is broken on both of them :( It only scrolls now. Crappy Razer products
2Beau: Just use A4 mice :) Even if You break it - go and buy another one, it's cheap )))))))))))))))
I'm a gamer :/ I need the 12 buttons on the side of the mouse unfortunately. Maybe I'll go with logitech, I hear they're good.
Works on my work mouse. I'm still so used to doing CTRL-click for opening in a new tab that I end up doing that anyway.
Yes, it's probably the custom software. The person I know has a Logitech mouse as well, and I verified that he has the Logitech software installed as well. It may be in the settings somewhere, I don't know.
The browser should be responding to the "middle mouse click" which is usually what the scroll wheel is set to. It also may be called the "3rd button". Sometimes the browser has to be set to enable this option as well.
