    Win 10 64 bit

    Mouse stops working- need right-click it to use again

    Has this post appeared already? I have had a glitch after submitting my post.

    The mouse on my PC, Win 10 64bit, has suddenly developed a habit of freezing a few seconds after it has been moved. I have to right-click it before it will move again. Every time. I can't see any setting in the mouse driver in Control Panel to cause it to do that.

    Does anyone have an idea about this? It is very annoying.

    Wireless or wired mouse? If wireless, replace battery.

    It also may be due to power saving settings for mouse or even USB port.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)


    Sounds silly, but if it's a wireless, try re-seating the dongle or re-pairing if Bluetooth. If wired, re-seat the USB cable.
