Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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?

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
