I use a three-button cordless Logitech T400 mouse with my Windows 10 work PC, even though Logitech says it’s “not supported on Windows 10.” The middle button opens the Windows Start Menu, but I want it to work for pasting, which is important for the software I use.

On older operating systems, I could install Logitech drivers to configure the middle button differently, but the Windows 10 SetPoint and Unifying software from Logitech didn’t have the options I needed.

After researching online, I found two possible solutions.

The first, a Windows utility program called “Mouse and Keyboard Center 12,” gave me an error message when I tried to install it.

The second option was X-Mouse Button Control 2.18.8, which I installed and configured to translate the middle button to right-clicking.

This worked for most applications, but for some reason, the Logitech middle button still opened the Start Menu.

I suspect that some process or setting is intercepting the middle-click event before X-Mouse Button Control can handle it, but I’m not sure what it could be.
