Thank You Internet (For Stopping Logitech Double/Single Click Randomness)

10 March 2013

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:

  1. Shut off the mouse and remove the batteries.
  2. Press all the buttons repeatedly for 30 seconds. This will drain all the static energy that may be trapped in the mouse.
  3. Put the batteries back in the mouse and turn it on.
  4. 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.
