Microsoft Intellimouse Compatibility


Dec 31, 2001
Hello All. i currently have a Microsoft Optical Intellimouse. I am also running Windows 98SE. I have knoticed that in order to be able to use the side buttons, I must be running the intellipoint software. At school, we have the same mouses, but running with Windows XP. It seems that in Windows XP, the foward and backward buttons are still functional even without the intellipoint software. Is this true? I will be upgrading to Windows 2k soon and wonder if it offers the same level of compatibility with the mouse.

I found out my dad's free advice was worth half what I paid for it. -Justin
