Lenovo L490 Trackpoint can't use both mouse buttons concurrently

2021-02-15, 19:47 PM

Hi there, I have a Lenovo L490 Thinkpad and while using some apps and for gaming I need to use both mouse buttons concurrently but neither button works while the other is pressed and held down. I've googled everywhere and haven't found any results or at least ones with a response.
Without the option of buying an external mouse, is there any way to remove this limitation or is it to do with the hardware?
(Additional info: OS Windows 10)

Hello Guilmon,


Welcome to Lenovo Community



If this feature is not offered as an option then usually an external gaming mouse would, with its manufacturer drivers.
You may also check for the driver update from the support site.
