    Using all mouse buttons in windows?

    I just got a World of Warcraft Legendary MMO Gaming mouse for Christmas. It has 11 buttons but only 5 work in windows is there a way to make windows use all 11 of the buttons outside of WoW

    As far as I know, all of the major operating systems only have integrated functions for five mouse buttons, so anything more than that has to input as some other command--usually they'll trigger as keyboard input. Those keypresses should come through in any program though. What exactly are you wanting these extra buttons to do for you in a Windows environment?

    I'm actually trying to use them as keyboard commands. How would I go about doing this?

    Most new gaming mice comes with some kind of softwsre that lets you set up macros. Try fiddling with that a bit

    Program that came with the mouse should let you reconfigure the buttons to anything.

    Trolling should be.
