I have a bit of an odd question, in Windows 10 where can I go to change the mouse button settings for browsing the internet so my extra mouse buttons aren’t used for going back and forward through web pages? The back button on my mouse is the same button I use for push to talk and it’s irritating when I’m on Discord and the net. I haven’t come across anything that does the job yet.
Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard app doesn’t work because I don’t use a Microsoft brand mouse. The manufacturer’s mouse software doesn’t help even though I can change the commands for the extra mouse buttons it overrides the Discord keybinding for that mouse button.
Is there a way to disable mouse button commands for a particular browser because I’m not finding anything searching around.
ANy browser really, happens with Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Explorer. Buttons 4 and 5 on my mouse are set to Back and Forward on the browser by default. I have mouse button 4 set to push to talk (which acts as the back button for browsers). If I have a browser and Discord open at the same time and I’m interacting with a web page if I click the mouse button I have set to push to talk in Discord it will also trigger the browser key setting for that mouse button and go Back on the browser. It won’t happen if the mouse cursor is not on the browser, it’s not a huge issue, just an annoying one.
Mouse Buttons 4 and 5 are by default mapped to the media actions “Back” and “Forward”.
If your push-to-talk is “Back” then there’s literally nothing you can do to make Discord and your browser behave differently.
The only option is to go into your mouse device software (assuming your mouse has that), and change the behaviour of the mouse (“Back”) button to something else, then bind that something else to your push-to-talk.
