    the white one...
    I just got a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer, with five button plus scroll wheel
    In the mouse properties there are drop-down menus for several different button assignments.
    Unfortunately, the function I really want is not listed in the drop-down. I want "Open in new window", which is "Alt-N" in IE Explorer.
    Is there a way to modify (add) button assignment commands to the standard drop-down list?
    As a note, the drop-down list does include the numbered "F" Function keyboard keys, so maybe I could assign "Alt-N" to an "F" key on the keyboard and assign that "F" key to the mouse button, that would do it.
    Any help would be appreciated...

    Hmmm...I have the same mouse, but besides changeing the assingments in games I have never tried to do custom stuff like that. I would try your idea thought and see how it goes.
    Good luck!
