IntelliMouse with IntelliEye - Page 4
earlier, the IntelliMouse has a total of three buttons whereas
the Explorer has five. The two additional buttons on the
Explorer have been positioned where you would normally rest
your thumb. Their default settings enable you to navigate
Forward and Backward on the browser. Though it takes some
getting used to, itís a feature I can certainly live with.

IntelliMouse and the Explorer both have the often replicated
IntelliMouse Wheel (The wheel can function as an additional
button when pressed). The Explorerís wheel is slightly 'looser'
than usual. This is great for scrolling through long documents
or web pages. The IntelliMouseís wheel is 'tighter' than
the Explorerís, making for better accurate weapon switching
in FPS games like Quake 3.
Noticed the extra two
buttons at the bottom?
is a take from the reviewers' manual : ďFor specialized
functions, such as game software commands, you can map both
the game command and the mouse button to the same keyboard
key. In addition, the five buttons on the IntelliMouse Explorer
will be supported directly in DirectX 7.0 API, allowing
you to skip the step of programming a keyboard key first.Ē
software allows you to choose your current mouse device
the included IntelliPoint 3.0 software, you can easily remap
the mouse buttons to suit your specific commands. You can
choose 35 different Windows functions to map each of the
buttons to. You can also adjust various mouse settings such
as double click speeds, pointers and orientation.
Various settings allows
you to set options to control the behaviour of the mouse.
