mouse doesn't turn off touch pad then

So if I understand you English types you have just diplomatically avoided saying that the presence of a mouse does NOT disable the touch pad. Therefore I will NOT be buying a Chromebook.

Thanks - from a Texan that doesn't wear sleeves.

For anyone who might be wondering, most wireless keyboards with USB receivers should work fine as well. My GE wireless mouse and keyboard work great with my Chromebook, just plug and play.

I use the Logitech M570 Trackball with my Chromebook.

Since we cannot run the Unified Remote Software on the Chromebook, I plugged the Unified Remote in my Laptop, ran the software to pair the Trackball with the remote Dongle, and then moved the Dongle to the Chromebook.

You may have to do something similar with the Microsoft products.

Question Configure Middle Mouse Button

Hi All,

I have a Logitech mouse connected to my Chromebook and it connected and was usable immediately - Great!

BUT, I really need to configure the middle mouse button to NOT open the apps button every time I press it - it serves no purpose that way.

Has anyone figured out a way to do this? I've been searching the web for days!!

Thanks to anyone that can help with this one!!
