This new feature on the IntelliMouse Explorer is very resourceful to avid computer users (especially handy for Internet use), and is very simple to set up:

  • Simply click on the mouse icon in your control panel or on the mouse icon in your system tray.
  • Click the buttons tab.

You will see IntelliMouse Explorer automatically selected in the upper "device" window, and an interactive picture of the mouse. As you move your pointer over the mouse, the buttons will highlight themselves as well as the corresponding button programming window.

The buttons feature 35 common functions to choose from. These are the most common commands that users execute. For specialized functions, such as game software commands, you can map both the game command and the mouse button to the same keyboard key. IntelliMouse Explorer now gives you five buttons to program. These five buttons will be supported directly in DirectX 7 API, allowing you to skip the step of programming a keyboard key first.
