Wireless Optical Mouse

I have switched over to the above five button mouse made by Amarina and distributed in France. There are no instructions on how to use the two side buttons, can any one tell me how to do this please.

Does it come with some utility software? There should be something to allow you to program the buttons.

This is for a Targus click here [abode format] might be the same workings!.

Hi Diodorus Siculus and spuds, thanks for your replies. I have a cd with the mouse but it will not auto run so I "opened" the cd and clicked on set-up which installed the driver but there are no instructions to configure the 4th. and 5th. buttons. Your link spuds reads exactly the same as the small user manual I have but that also does not mention the extra buttons!

What are the extra buttons usually for?

I use the side buttons on my Logitech for browser backwards/forward.

Try going into Control Panel and then to Mouse.

On the Buttons tab, there may be a drop-down list to select the function of the extra buttons.

Mikè, I have just tried that and would you believe it the buttons work as yours do!! so you have solved the problem for me, many thanks.

QuickHare, as you can see the problem is solved but I tried your suggestion and only the top buttons can be changed, It doesn't mention the side buttons.

Hope you read this QuickHare, I owe you an apology, just been running through the settings for the new mouse and there are settings for the fourth and fifth buttons, I do not know how I missed them, they are set as you say by default so I will leave them like that.

Thanks again to all of you for your help,
