    Logitech mouse hypersensitive left click button

    OK, I like Logitech mice; but they have a nasty habit as they get older of having the left click button become hypersensitive. I've tried all sorts of software settings, reloading drivers, etc all to no avail.

    Well It turns out there is a mechanical solution to the problem. The following link provides information on one fix to the problem, especially if your mouse is equipped with the older OMRON brand microswitches. The Logitech Mouse Double Click Problem and How To Fix It! | The Red Ferret Journal

    However if you are lucky(?) as I was to have newer OMRON switches a simple cleaning with crocus cloth or 600-grit wet/dry sandpaper will put you back in business. OMRON should gold plate these microswitches to eliminate the corrosion problem.

    Anyway, a simple cleaning of the contacts will put you back in business. However; these parts are tiny and a jeweler's loupe on your glasses will make life a bit easier. Put a piece of electrical tape on top of the black plastic cover to keep the white piece of plastic that activates the switch in place. Once you get the cover off, find a way to keep the sheet metal part shown in the video from Red Ferret from flying off. It's a PITA to get it back on, and spring tension is critical. If it doesn't click, it won't work properly.

    I've repaired both of my MX 705's this way with lots of bad words spoken; but I saved probably $150 in new mice over a lousy set of $2 microswitches I can get on FleaBay.

    As I understand it, this fix may apply to Microsquish mice and other brands. Once again, the parts are frakking tiny, and I suggest you try this this at your own risk.

    I luuuuve my Logitec 7 function mouse! But I found a way that might reduce the operating cycles of a left click button. I set up my computer mouse setting to operate everything on "single click". 4 zillion cycles saved and counting...

    But where does the Logitec software for power side scrolling go...? Mine won't scroll L + R anymore.

    I would think it would be in Logitech's Setpoint program; but I never use side-to-side scrolling.

    I just checked my programs again and it's not there, nothing listed as "Logitec". I will have to dig out the install disk and reload it...

    I use the side scrolling because I run more screen size than most and parts of some pages are beyond the screen. For this site 140% screen is good and all the content is onscreen.

    There should be a folder named "Logitech" on your Start>Menu>Programs; but it sounds like it disappeared on you. If you can't find the disk, you can always get the latest software from their website.


    I have 30" monitors, and have yet to need side-to-side scrolling; but there are a lot of things I don't use on my PC's too.

    Sometimes it's the most obvious solution that I miss. So many disks, so many places to look...

    Off to the Logitec website!! Thanks!!!!
