I've gotten into the habit of right clicking to open a new window, but have noticed lately 7 doesn't respond to a right click (IE8 and FF). Kind of annoying, though. thank for any pointers...Garry
does anyone else have right click problems within 7?(10 posts)
Yes...I bought a brand new laptop and I am having this problem right out of the box, no third-party applications installed (other than MS software pre-installed) and nobody seems to have an answer! Tried for a week now, all I get is the runaround and no tech support places have heard of the problem. It's so random and happens when no other programs are even open!
Thanks everyone. Sorry to have taken so long to reply. I am right clicking on the link as I have for years now( hate the tab thing), but just recently (3wks.) when I right click on a link nothing happens. As if I didn't click at all. Have changed mouse from USB to ps2 and wireless. Does'nt affect Vista only 7. Not so much a problem as an annoyance. Thanks again...Garry
When I right click I do get the context menu, but after left clicking "Open in new window" it's as if I didn't left click to make that choice. I use IE8 and FF, with Safari as a backup. Haven't changed anything I can think of. Haven't tried uninstalling the browsers, because I don't think it would happen with both IE and FF. Really weird annoyance...Garry
