So today I turned on my laptop, and used my mouse, and noticed something weird going on with my trusty Logitech mouse; for some weird reason, it kept registering a fair number of single clicks as double clicks. Needless to say, this makes things like highlighting text crazy frustrating; but thank you internet for your long memory.
Came across this post from an apparently now-retired Logitech employee where he explains that:
This can be caused by static energy trapped inside the capacitors in the mouse. To drain this static energy, please plug the Unifying receiver into a different USB port and follow this procedure:
- Shut off the mouse and remove the batteries.
- Press all the buttons repeatedly for 30 seconds. This will drain all the static energy that may be trapped in the mouse.
- Put the batteries back in the mouse and turn it on.
- Wait a few seconds for it to re-connect and test the buttons.
If this does not fix your issue, please contact the customer support team in your region for more assistance, including a possible warranty replacement.
And what do you know, it works, it actually works!
Thank you internet.
