I'm getting old, and too much regular mousing leaves my hand in a lot of pain, especially if I'm working on something fiddly and precise (like an SVG project, or editing video). I'm currently using a Kensington Orbit Fusion wireless trackball. So far, it's working out pretty well…but not with Kensington's software.

My trackball was right-clicking on its own constantly until I uninstalled KensingtonWorks and installed X-Mouse Button Controlplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigX-Mouse Button Control (XMBC)

This is a very simple mouse button remapping application that uses a win32 mouse API that has been included in Windows since XP. It's a relatively limited application as a result, but it does what it says on the tin very efficiently.

For whatever reason, KensingtonWorks seems to be very flaky in Windows 10. I have no problems using either XMBC, or using a different OS. MacOS 10.14 (Mojave)plugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigMacOS 10.14 (Mojave)

This is the last version of MacOS I use on compatible Macs.
sees the trackball as a regular input device, and I've had no problems with ghost clicking.
