I just got myself a new Lenovo T400 laptop and I'm quite enjoying it. However, I'm kind of a middle click junky, it gets used on my desktop probably more than Right-click. Anyway, on other laptops I have been able to use Right Click + Left Click to emulate a middle click. Is there anyway to do this?
Update your synaptics touchpad driver - there should be an option to set corners as middle-click.
I've not been following synaptics driver development - it could be that now there's an option for two-button-middle-click-emulation too.
Update : 2-button-middle-click-emulation found for T400 here.
On ThinkPad t400s Windows 7 works for me disabling of special functions on a middle button:
Control Panel -> Mouse -> UltraNav (tab) -> TrackPoint "Settings..." (button) -> Set "Choose Scrolling or Magnifying Glass Function" to "Neither"
On Windows 8 one suggest to uninstall driver for UltraNav pointing device completely and use native Windows 8 support: Delete driver for UltraNav pointing device completely. see: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Carbon-X1-Use-middle-scroll-button-as-middle-click/m-p/1413823#M54804
I don't use the touchpad at all, so I configured the left touchpad button to be a middle button. You can do this in Control Panel | Mouse | UltraNav.
Note that I have this problem that is still unresolved.
Autohotkey(.com) could do this quite easily.
LButton & RButton::MButton
would do middle on clicking left then right. You could also remap right then left to middle, or something totally different.
edit: I see I got the example the ENTIRELY wrong way round. The way & works is that if you press and hold button 1, then press button 2, it fires - so... yeah. :D
