Side scrolling is typically limited tp applications that are compatible with the advanced features of a particular device; some apps will not accept side-scrolling whatsoever while others will have limited functionality, perhaps only with Microsoft mice for example.

Experiment with it and let us know if it works in any applications at all. If the first app that you tried it with happened to be, say, Firefox, try it with an MS app.

On a Help page in another mag it said the answer was to download MS Intellimouse software instead for Logitech problems.

I use the same keyboard,but dont use the mouse that came with it,although it does work no problem.Have you connected the mouse before the keyboard as per the instructions on the underside of the keyboard?

Also,try the connect utility,and check the keyboard and mouse settings again
