Mouse Productivity Tip

Recommended Posts

I was cleaning the lint, hair, gunk, etc from the bottom of my filthy mouse and noticed there were two side buttons.   All these years and I never noticed them before...weird.

I found they were for navigating in browsers...they did the Next and Prev buttons.  Then I found they could be remapped.

If you download and install X-Mouse Button Control, you can remap buttons on an application basis to just about anything.

I remapped buttons 4 and 5  to the Previous and Next Marker keyboard shortcuts.   Sweet!

Great tip, thanks!

I already use X-Mouse Button Control, but hadn't thought of actually mapping keys to Cakewalk specifically. Brilliant! :D

This is great. For the app you mention, does it continue to allow those side buttons to control your browser while you're not in CW?

EDIT: Got my answer. Yes!
