I keep randomly losing the ability to use my mouse's right button. This means that I have to remember the 'ctrl + v' for paste, etc. This is a hardship and I would like to restore my lazy button. Also, some people in my house need my help now every time they have to copy and paste and it's annoying.
Two things have happened recently that may have contributed to this.
A few days ago I updated the Windows program that relates to the mouse. Sorry, I forget the name of the program. However I didn't have any problems until at least 24 hours after that update.
The second thing that immediately preceded the loss of the right click is a little embarrassing and it's what I think has caused the problem. My cat walked across my keyboard, casually pressing just about every button as I tried to pull her off. I know I shouldn't let her do that, but she's very stubborn! The right click mysteriously returned today and has been returning at least partially and then going away every few minutes. It's about a six month old mouse with a brand new battery. I reseated the little usb thingie and everything else on it works fine.
I know this has to be some simple little thing, right? Thanks for any advice!
