I have in the last few days updated my Win 7 PC to IE9, also yesterday I downloaded Microsoft updates. Today I find that whereas the left mouse button single click will perform as normal in every other application,- when on this forum and some other forums, if I select a thread and left click on it will not open that thread. If I right click on the thread and choose "Open" it opens straight away. I have inserted new batteries and rebooted PC,I have also tried a different mouse.- and still the same scenario. Another PC with XP working alongside has no problems at all. IE9/Latest MS updates causing the problem? Any thoughts?
Tried it in compatability mode and just the same. I could not post this thread from the problem PC as when trying to left click on publish it would not respond at all. It seems selective in its choice of use, I have as yet to find any other application where the left mouse button does NOT work!
One other thing to try is to re-set IE. Tools- internet options, advanced tab and re-set IE to default. Try again without compatibility mode. Enable your addons a few at a time. You'll also have to reinstall iespell. If that doesn't work then I'm stumped.
I know this is not exactly part of this query, but 'rdave13' mentioned 'compatibility mode'. I have tried to find this before, but can't! Is there someone out there who could give a brain dead pensioner a definitive step-by-step guide to this 'mode', please? Many thanks in anticipation.
