my old mouse, which was a dell ball mouse, if you clicked on a link using the wheel button, it would open it in a new tab, the Microsoft laser wireless 5000 doesn't allow me to do that using the default settings, what must i change the setting for wheel button to allow new tab openings?
This is a very fragile mouse. Many users have complaint about the mouse not functioning well. I would suggest you to try to test it on another PC. If it still does the same thing, install the latest drivers. Note that, this mouse will not work if there’s any interference such as PS/2 device. Hope this will help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838398.

If the problem persist, try to send it to the store where you bought it to repair because you shouldn't have any problem with this mouse.
