    Scroll through windows tabs with right hand mouse


    I want to scroll through tabs on internet browser with right hand mouse alone

    I don't want to discuss the specifics why but basically I don't want to use my left hand at all sometimes during certain web browsing sessions. Please don't judge or ask why.

    How do I browse through internet web browser tabs with just right hand mouse? Without having to click on each tab. I just want to use either a button, scroll wheel, or an extension/add on that will make scrolling through tabs only right handed.

    Maybe we can come up with a Key Combo, is there a way to make a custom Key Combo with Windows 8? So that all he would have to do is press a predefined key plus the right click. Something like Intellimouse should be able to be programmed with special combos, I have one so I'll look- I have to re-install the software for it.

    OK I found the Download, now I'll fool with it, and see what I can come up with.

Sometimes when starting up my Windows 8.1 laptop, the scroll setting will be set to scroll one line per tick scroll. When I go to the mouse settings on the control panel, it says "5" lines per mouse scroll (which is what I have it set to.), however it only ticks one. This means every single time...

Strange, seeing this is a Microsoft branded mouse, BUT yet according to "Device Manager" it is showing the correct mouse, BUT also it is saying this mouse has NO buttons, nor the ability to double click. Went over to MSDN to record this event, but couldn't find a listing for Windows Developers...
