Double click on a Logitech mouse: causes and solutions from Mila's blog

Many people know about the problem of double-clicking mouse buttons from the manufacturer A4tech. Due to the poor quality of components, mice often produce a couple of clicks instead of one. However, Logitech mice don't usually have this problem. And yet, in recent years, the number of such complaints has become more frequent. For some, clicks appear everywhere: on the desktop, in the application. There are those who note the appearance of double clicks only in games. Also at https://cpscounter.org/right-click-cps-test.html you can test the right click speed of the mouse.

Reasons for double clicks

The problem can be caused by:

  • Hardware malfunctions. Physical problems in low-quality spare parts or their marriage are not so common;

  • The mouse is configured to produce double clicks instead of single clicks;

  • Accumulation of static charge. The problem appears on mice that have been in active use for a long time;

  • The button (on the microcircuit) or the spring is weakened and does not provide the desired return of the button. Because of this, the button is pressed once or more;

  • Failure or damage to drivers;

  • Breakage of mouse components, usually preceded by a fall. If the mouse has been dropped in the recent past, this may cause component failure.

To identify the cause of the problem, you need to try connecting the mouse to another computer. Such a simple method helps to determine what the cause of the problem is - in the software part or in the hardware failure. If the mouse works normally on another PC, the problem is in the system and it can be fixed.

How to remove double clicks on a Logitech mouse?

Paradoxically, but quite often the problem appears with new Logitech mice. The company officially confirmed that it is aware of the problems, and therefore offers options for fixing them. Also at https://cpscounter.org/ you can find out how fast you can click your gaming mouse.

Checking mouse settings

If there is no working mouse nearby, you can use the Tab button, which will move to the next interface element. The Enter button can open the item.

What do we have to do:

  1. Press the combination Win + R, enter in the field "control" and click the Enter key.

  2. While in the "Control Panel", in the "View" item, set the view to "Large Icons" (located in the upper right part of the screen).

  3. Open the item "Mouse".

  4. Move the slider that controls the speed of double-clicking to the minimum value.

Did it help? If the situation has not changed, another manipulation should be carried out.

Instruction:

  1. Click the Win + S keys, insert the phrase "Open Setting" and select the partition found.

  2. Check the box next to the item "Double open, and select with one click", then you should "Apply" the change and close the window.

  3. Restart your computer and make sure the mouse is working properly.

Static discharge (for wireless)

With the help of the proposed instructions in this section, it is possible to remove the accumulated charge, which interferes with the normal operation of the Bluetooth mouse.

Action algorithm:

  1. Disable the mouse via the button or switch on its body.

  2. Remove the batteries or accumulator from the device.

  3. Now, time after time, you should click the left and then the right mouse button. So you need to do 45 seconds.

  4. Return the mouse to working condition by inserting the batteries and turning it on.

Checking Mouse Drivers

Often problems in Logitech mice are caused by an outdated, incorrectly installed or missing driver. It's worth reinstalling it.

Driver Reinstallation Guide:

  1. Press the Windows + R key combination, paste "devmgmt.msc" and click on the Enter button.

  2. In a new window, open the "Mice and other pointing devices" list.

  3. Select the installed Logitech mouse, right-click on the "Uninstall device" option.

  4. Disconnect the mouse, remove the batteries and leave it for a couple of minutes, then carry out the pairing procedure again.

  5. Windows will automatically pull the mouse drivers from its memory and install the necessary software into the system. If the system did not do this on its own, you will have to download the drivers from the official site.

Repair of the clock button inside the mouse

The meaning of the procedure is to correct a small metal plate. Over time, it loses elasticity and bends. If earlier it quickly returned to its place, now it provides only a slow return. So instead of one click, she makes several. Another possible problem is a broken microcontroller, which drives the entire mechanism.

How to repair the mouse manually:

  1. Flip the mouse over and spin it. Usually the bolts are under the legs, so they need to be removed carefully or new ones purchased in advance.

  2. Pay attention to the small black block where the left mouse button is located. This mikrik is responsible for pressing the keys. It needs to be opened by picking up gaps on one side and the other.

  3. Bend the metal tab of the microcontroller up.

  4. Collect the mouse back and check the result.

If this does not help or the microcontroller is non-separable, you can drive into the Internet its number indicated on the side to buy a new one. Soldering several contacts is not difficult, but the result is a distinct, clear click. The mouse should last at least another 1-3 years, depending on the activity of use.

A Logitech mouse isn't cheap enough to throw away when double clicks occur. Almost always, everything can be repaired independently without large financial and time costs.
