How to configure Touchpad middle button?

HP Recommended
zbook 17 G6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How can I change or re-define the function of the middle button on the touchpad?  When I'm using a web browser, the middle button closes the current tab, which is very frustrating because it is easy to inadvertently hit the middle button instead of the left button.

I have found this question listed previously on this forum, but there were no answers suggested.

Hi @GPS-Eddie,

 

I'm guessing that the Zbook 17 G6 uses the Microsoft Precision Touchpad. If so, try going into Settings > Devices > Touchpad and see if there are any settings that might allow you to change the middle mouse button action.

 

Otherwise, I'm guessing 3rd party software might work.


I am currently preoccupied with both academic and professional priorities so please note that there may be a delay in my responses. Thank you for your understanding.

There is no configuration for buttons under Settings > Devices, although there is a link to "Additional Settings" which does allow swapping of left and right button functions.  However, there is still no way to configure the middle button.

I'm unable to find a way to configure the middle button either with Windows or HP-specific settings.  Very frustrating.  I would even be happy just to disable the middle button altogether.
