I have a Logitech mouse connected to my computer, but I cannot use all of its capabilities in my virtual machine. In my virtual machine, the back button on my mouse does not work. In order for it to work, I have to manually go into the VM settings and disable the mouse on my host and enable it on my guest. I don't want to do this each time. Or is there a way to get it to automatically do this when I toggle between my guest and host (each time I press ctrl + alt)?

What VM software are you using? Did your Logitech mouse come with any software that had to be installed to enable extra functionality? – Jake Elsley Oct 9 '12 at 12:35

You haven't stated if you are using the VMWare Guest tools. They should be giving you the extra sauce that you need to fully use your mouse.
