    Extra Mouse Button Opens File Explorer (Win 10 Home)


    Hi everyone,

    (MSI Clutch 08 Gaming Mouse)

    I got my new gaming mouse today and the software that came with the mouse doesn't have button configuration. By default, Mouse 4 opens File Explorer. However, I cannot find a way to unbind that function nor change it in Windows 10 or the mouse software. I tried to use X-Mouse to bind it to F9, but it still opens File Explorer in-game.

    I've been out of PC gaming for years now and don't know how to proceed.

    Thank you,
    Brandon

    Try this
    Mouse Manager

    A common problem on the MSI and other mice that do not offer programmable buttons and wheel etc on their own provided software - the better ones do, but of course it comes at a cost
