What will Mouse Button Control do for me?

o Convert the Center Mouse Button to a double click.
o Make the Center Mouse Button do whatever you want it to.
o Define your Center Mouse Button.
o Redefine any mouse Button to do anything you want it to do.
o We are the mouse trainers.
o Send your mouse to obedience school.
o Let us tame your mouse.

Converts the four arrow keys to mouse moves option. To press an arrow key will move the mouse cursor one pixel. This is handy if you want to use the mouse to highlight and grab something, and continue to hold down the left mouse button while tapping the arrow keys. This allows you to move an object precisely where you want it. You can turn this option on and off as needed.

Permissions Problems

If you experience permissions problems it is most likely that you have a [Standard User] account. Changing your account to an [Administrator] account will fix this problem.

You can not change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account while logged into your own account because, (you guessed it), you do not have permission.

To change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account: Log off your account, log on to an [administrator account], change your account to an [Administrator] account, and reboot the computer.

If you are running Windows Vista:
o Click the [Start] button
o Locate and select [Switch User]
o Log on to an [administrator account]
o Click the [Start] button
o Select [Settings]
o Select [ Control Panel]
o Select [User Accounts]
o Select [Manage another account]
o Find and select [your user account]
o Select [Change the account type]
o Change your account to [Administrator]
o Select [Change Account Type]
o Reboot the computer
