Who Can Hack My Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse?
October 8, 2013 7:58 PM   Subscribe

I recently had to retire my malfunctioning M$ Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. I bought the M$ Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse, which works beautifully but is missing essential button functions. The "Back" button is tiny, stiff and hard to reach, and the "Forward" button is gone completely. I can set the "Click Roller" button to "Forward," but I'd much rather reset the "Horizontal Scrolling" functions (nudge roller left and right) to "Forward" and "Back." Is there a way to do this? Where else should I go to ask this question?

It's been years (like, six at least) since I had a MS mouse, but I remember they had some software that you could download to remap the buttons. Mine had the functions all switched around. Intellipoint maybe?

Yes, probably, but exactly how you do it depends on what operating system you're using.

I googled "remap mouse buttons Windows 7".

Try a program called XMouse Button Control.
