On Linux, the last text selected can be pasted via a middle click, making copy-pasting faster for one thing, and additionally providing a second clipboard. Is there a way to add this feature to Windows 7?

True X-Mouse seems to provide this, but it also adds the mouse-over focusing which I'd like to not have, and there seems to be no setting to switch that off, so are there alternatives?

almost duplicate: but I explicitly do not want that mouse-over focusing behaviour – Tobias Kienzler Nov 16 '11 at 14:52

You could try an AHK Script for this

that thread shows only half the work, but you made me find this SU answer linking to another thread that has a full script – Tobias Kienzler Nov 16 '11 at 11:40

It's really easy with a Microsoft mouse, as the IntelliPoint software lets you define just about any common function to any of the mouse buttons. I would be surprised if the Logitech mouse software did not have something similar as well.

but does it copy a selected text to a buffer simply when the left mouse button is released? I'm no admin on this machine and no special drivers are installed so I can't check this – Tobias Kienzler Nov 16 '11 at 13:14
