Hello all. I have a logitech T400 Zone Touch Mouse, in Windows 8 i had the mouse setup to where id click the center button/touchpad which would switch me from the desktop or the Metro Desktop. I have installed the Official Windows 8.1 and then installed classic start 4.0 again.. the problem i am having is i cant get my center button the switch me back and fourth like it used to. I saw there is three settings..
1. Nothing
2. Classic start menu

3. Windows start menu

i tried all three options but none of the work. The first setting obviously nothing happens, the second i center click with my mouse and it brings up the classic start menu, the third finally which i was hoping would do the trick just also brings uo the classic start menu when i try it.

Any ideas? or am i blatantly missing something obvious?

Middle click should work. Export your setting to XML file and attach it here.

Change Hover to Nothing and try again. It is possible the two settings interact in some way.

I tried your settings on Windows 8.1 and everything works fine. Both hovering and middle-click open the start screen.

Might be something specific to your mouse. Look at the mouse settings. Some drivers allow remapping of the middle button to something other than generating a middle click.
Also if you have a plain USB mouse try it instead.

Yeah i checked my mouse settings as well and they seem to be setup the way they need to be... bummer. I dont have any other usb mouses but i did try my old ps2 mouse and it didnt work. Maybe ill try and reinstall an older version of classic shell startup.

You don't have any software like IntelliPoint/Mouse and Keyboard Center installed right that has assigned middle click to something else? Windows Update also installs these sometimes as Recommended Updates.
