    Windows 8 Build 9200

    Mouse scroll button opens Windows Start menu when clicked

    I understand that this is some sort of a hotkey which opens up the start menu but I would like to disable it.

    I've tried to go into control panel, mouse settings, wheel, etc, and after poking around everywhere in the settings I wasn't able to find the settings that controlled the mouse wheel button.

    Can anyone tell me how I can do so?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the TenForums

    In my case, using Logitech Mouse this is set in the Logitech software. (at least mine). You didn't mention, what kind of mouse you have?

    If Logitech then you should have a Logitech icon in Systray.

    If you have a specific brand then their software likely controls. Without software windows may just be defaulting.

    On my laptop it's called Asus Gesture Control and there is an icon for it in the Systray.
