After upgrading to Windows 10 I am finding a weird issue with the Wireless Optical Mouse 5000.
Clicks (left and right) simply fail to register on some UI elements though it works fine in all non OS applications (e.g. right clicking in any area of the screen in Google Chrome works as expected and shows the popup menu).
I can left click the start button and the start menu shows up (and right click works too for the context menu). Mousing over items on the Start Menu works fine but neither left or right click do anything.
Similarly when I open the "Settings" app I need to use the keyboard to tab through the options as selecting with the mouse doesn't work.
Not all OS windows are affected. Windows Explorer still works fine for example. It appears to be the windows with a newer look.
The latest drivers available for my mouse seem to be Windows 8.1. I have installed this with no change.
Anyone any ideas on underlying cause and how I might resolve this?
After reboot no clicks work at all unless I press CTRL+ALT+DEL and then escape out of the screen shown. Then everything appears to work fine. (This was an issue pre-upgrade too that I just got used to).
I had also noticed for the last few weeks the mouse battery is running down very fast and I now have to charge it weekly.
