It didn’t always default to the latter, even though the mouse was still connected, so it didn’t feel quite as seamless as it should. The other three buttons are located along the side, next to the thumb rest. By default, the front- and rearmost buttons go forward and back in browsers and other apps, while the middle button switches to windowed task view. Aside from the dedicated Bluetooth connection button, all buttons can be customized in Microsoft’s software, so let’s take a look at that. Unfortunately, the software proved surprisingly Flash Player unstable, which kept me from being able to fine-tune the performance settings and lights to my liking.
Steermouse is definitely worth $20 to be finished with these annoyances. If you have more than one mouse, and would like all of the buttons to work, then check out steermouse. The more complex offerings allow you to record a macro, while another tab at the top of the window lets you define commands on a per-program basis. If you want to get very specific with your inputs, and spend a lot of time in certain apps where hotkeys are king, this unassuming software can help you out. It also includes a useful option to apply your settings to any machine you pair the mouse with, so you don’t have to repeat your customization. Once paired, you can choose what each customizable button should do in the software. You don’t need frills with a daily-use mouse, but it’s a very spartan menu.
Logitech hits you with annoying notifications to install its Gaming Software whenever you plug in a Logitech G peripheral. The software itself does everything I want it to, and does so without requiring an account/profile login or internet connection.
It was the same situation that I encountered with iTake when we tested the Thermaltake Level 20 GT RGB Gaming Keyboard alongside this mouse. What I found most pleasing about the mouse, however, is that it worked without issue as a plug-and-play device. I’ve lost count of how many mice I’ve used over the years, and I frequently switch models as many show subtle, irregular issues. As such, whenever I find a mouse able to go for a week without a glitch, I’m thrilled.
- Just above the scrollwheel there are two arrow buttons, which out of the box just work as a left click, but can be set to a custm function.
- To generate the spatiotemporally controlled mutant mice, two elements are needed in the Cre-loxP system .
- The large button under the scroll wheel is the left-click.
- The long button right next to the large ball is the right-click.
- The vertically placed scrollwheel scrolls, but can also be clicked and tilted up or down (which ‘scrolls’ left and right).

It was bad enough that the popup took me away from writing for a minute, but it would’ve been catastrophic if the window takeover happened in the middle of a game. To make matters worse, after updating the software reset my profile back to default. Luckily I only had to reconfigure a few DPI settings and not a pile of custom macros and keybindings.
Add the fact that it wasn’t the most responsive software, and it comes off as a bit underwhelming considering it is powering a $100 mouse. The mouse connected fairly easily for me, but I was disappointed with the consistency of the connection. For starters, the software occasionally seemed to lose track of whether I had a compatible device connected when I first opened it, before registering and moving on to the customization screen.
We’d like to point out that no USB-based accessory should ever need a driver that requires a full system reboot. Requiring a system restart is now mostly a thing of historical requirements rather than modern Windows driver design stacks. An RGB mousepad asking for a restart is next-level absurdity. With a carry distance that was seven yards longer than the average for all drivers tested, it’s safe to say the TS4 put on a show during robot testing in South Korea. It received similar high marks during player testing from low handicappers—particularly those with faster swings—who previously had difficulty shedding unwanted spin.
