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.
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.
