Even something as simple as a mouse button can fail. If your mouse’s left-click button is sticking, isn’t consistently responding, or is accidentally double-clicking, this often indicates a hardware problem with the mouse. It could be a software issue, however.

It’s Probably a Hardware Problem; Here’s How to Check

In our experience, most mouse left-click (or right-click) issues point to hardware failure. If the mouse’s left-click button doesn’t work, only sometimes responds, accidentally “unclicks” as you drag, misclicks, or double-clicks when you click once, that’s a pretty good sign there’s something wrong with the hardware in the left-click button itself.

There’s an extremely easy way to check whether you have a hardware issue or a software issue: Unplug your mouse from your current computer, plug it into another computer, and test the left-click button. If you have a wireless mouse, either plug its RF dongle into another computer or pair it via Bluetooth with another computer.

If the problem is the same when the mouse is plugged into another computer, you know you have a hardware problem. If the mouse works perfectly on another computer, there’s a software configuration issue with your current computer.

You can also try connecting another mouse to your current PC. Does it have the same problem? If not, there’s likely a hardware issue. If both mice have the same strange left-click issues, there’s definitely a software issue with your PC.

There could also be a problem with a USB port on your system—if it’s a wired mouse, try plugging your mouse into another USB port. If you have a wireless mouse with a USB dongle, move the dongle to another USB port.

Keep in mind that some problems can be spotty or intermittent, especially if the hardware is just starting to fail. The mouse button may work great much of the time and only fail sometimes. Use the mouse with another PC for long enough to confirm that it’s working correctly.

How to Fix a Broken Mouse Button

All mouse buttons will eventually fail if you use them enough. Mouse buttons are rated for a certain number of clicks. For example, the latest version of Razer’s popular DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse is rated for “up to 50 million clicks.” A cheaper mouse may be rated for many fewer clicks. After that, the physical mechanism in the mouse button wears down, and it stops working correctly.

If your mouse is still in warranty, we recommend you contact the manufacturer and take advantage of it. The company should repair the mouse for you—or, more likely, send you a new one.

If your mouse is out of warranty, well, it may be time to buy a new mouse. Or, if you’re willing to get your hands dirty, you can try repairing it yourself. The exact process will vary depending on your model of mouse and precisely what’s broken. For example, iFixit has a general guide to repairing mouse buttons. YouTube is full of advice for individual mouse models, such as this guide to re-tensioning a spring in a Logitech Performance MX mouse. The problem may be simpler than it seems—you may just need to open the mouse and clean out some dust getting in the way. We recommend searching for your mouse’s model name and “fix left click,” “fix mouse button,” or a similar search for some customized information.

How to Troubleshoot Left-Click Software Issues

If your mouse works perfectly fine on another PC but doesn’t work correctly on yours, then congratulations! You can fix the glitch. You just need to find out what software issue you have.

Before we start, if you’re having trouble following these tips due to mouse clicking problems, you can enable Mouse Keys by pressing Left Alt+Left Shift+Num Lock. You can then control your mouse cursor from your keyboard.

On Windows, it’s possible to swap your left and right mouse buttons. If you’ve done this, your left mouse button may not appear to function normally—it’s functioning as the right one, while the right one is functioning as the left one. This is intended for left-handed people using a right-handed mouse.

On Windows 10, head to Settings > Devices > Mouse. Under “Select your primary button,” ensure the option is set to “Left.” On Windows 7, head to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Mouse and ensure “Switch primary and secondary buttons” isn’t checked.

The ClickLock feature can also cause strange issues. With this enabled, you can briefly press the mouse button and release it. Windows will treat the mouse button as held down until you click again. This can help you highlight and drag if you have difficulty holding the mouse button down, but it’s strange and confusing behavior if this setting somehow accidentally got turned on and you aren’t aware of it.

On both Windows 10 and 7, head to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Mouse. Ensure the “Turn on ClickLock” option is unchecked here.

It’s possible that a hardware driver issue could be causing issues with recognizing your mouse button’s clicks, too. We’ve never seen this problem in the wild, but it’s worth checking. To test this, open the Device Manager. You can do so by right-clicking the Start button on Windows 10 and selecting “Device Manager.”

Expand the “Mice and other pointing devices” section, locate your mouse, right-click it, and select “Update Driver.” Click “Search automatically for updated driver software,” and Windows will attempt to find new drivers that match the mouse.

If you see multiple mouse devices here, repeat the process for each.

Many other websites offer a wide variety of troubleshooting tips that we doubt are helpful. As always it’s a good idea to reboot your PC and see if that fixes the problem. And, sure, you could try booting into Safe Mode to see if there’s a strange hardware issue. But scanning your system files for corruption probably isn’t going to help.

Let’s face it: Most left-click problems with mice are due to hardware failure. Unless you’ve accidentally enabled a particular setting in Windows, the real solution to a left-click problem is generally replacing (or repairing) the mouse itself.

Let’s face it: Most left-click problems with mice are due to hardware failure. Unless you’ve accidentally enabled a particular setting in Windows, the real solution to a left-click problem is generally replacing (or repairing) the mouse itself.

After a few Windows versions that, shall we say, attracted some negative feedback from the user community, Microsoft finally managed to pull the rabbit out of the hat with Windows 10, a pretty solid and impressive OS that has done a lot to rehabilitate the reputation of the Redmond software giant. Not only is Windows 10 significantly more reliable and easier to use than Windows 7 or 8, it is also better at managing PC resources and has better security to boot. It isn’t without its foibles, though, and one common issue is that sometimes the left mouse button just stops working.

I have seen this problem crop up myself on my own computer, and I’ve helped numerous clients fix the issue as well. It seems to just appear randomly, and the usual symptoms are the left mouse button not working at all or only working on certain parts of the desktop. It occasionally happens in programs too.

Fix left mouse button not working in Windows 10

There are a couple of basic checks we can perform to get the left mouse button working again and a couple of more in-depth steps. Let’s start with the easy stuff.

Reboot your computer

If you’re not in the middle of something that will cause you to lose data if you reboot, your first step should be to reboot. It should fire the mouse button back up again and have you working again within a minute or two.

Change the USB port

Sometimes you can trigger Windows to pick up the mouse again if you plug it into a different USB slot. This forces the OS to register the device again and hopefully have it working as it was. This is a little hit and miss but as it only takes ten seconds, it is worth trying as long as you have a spare USB slot. Swap it with something else otherwise.

Try right click

I had an issue where the mouse buttons swapped sides for no reason at all. Left click turned into right click and vice versa. Type ‘mouse’ into the Search Windows box and select ‘Configure mouse settings’. In the new window, select ‘Additional mouse options’ in the center under Related settings.

Make sure ‘Switch primary and secondary buttons’ is not checked. If it is not checked, check the box and hit Apply. Then uncheck the box and hit Apply once more. Remember to use the opposite button!

If none of those work, we need to dig a little deeper.

SFC scan

Performing a System File Check (SFC) scan can help detect any issues with Windows that could be causing your left mouse button to not work. It is a self-contained test that is run from the command line. The SFC checks all Windows files and makes any repairs if it finds issues.

Right click the Windows Task bar and select Task Manager. Select File and Create new task. Type ‘cmd’ into the box and check the box to create the task with administrative privileges. This last is important. Finally, when the black box appears, type ‘sfc /scannow’ and hit Enter.

The scan may take a while but will look after itself. If the scan finds any issues, it will automatically repair them. With any luck, you will see a message that says ‘Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.’ You may see ‘Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations’. This is okay too as it shows Windows is working (mostly) okay.

If you see a message that says ‘Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.’ then you will need to manually fix the issue. In the same CMD window as above, type ‘Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup’ and hit Enter. Then type ‘Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth’ and hit Enter. Allow both processes to complete and then reboot.

If that doesn’t work:

App registration

Apps play a significant role in Windows 10 so our final tip is to force Windows to re-register all apps running on your computer.

Open a CMD window with administrator privileges as above. Type ‘Powershell’ and hit Enter. The prompt should change so it says ‘PS C:\windows\system32’. Then paste ‘Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach ’ into the window. You should see a list of apps being processed and the task should complete within a minute or two.

Make sure you have Windows Firewall running when you run this command otherwise all you will see is red errors. Apps are tied very closely to Windows Firewall for some reason. Even if you don’t use the firewall, enable the service, run the command and then disable it again.

Those are the ways I know to fix the left mouse button not working in Windows 10. I have yet to come across a situation where one of these hasn’t fix the issue. Got any other fixes? Tell us about them below if you do.

I have done multiple tests and it appears my mouse is fine, it is an issue with my PC. I have tried multiple solutions from threads on here and none have worked. I’ve reinstalled my mouse’s drivers and the drivers associated with the USB connection it is attached to. I have made sure that my CPU is running normally and done a full scan and found no malware. Anyone know a solution to this?

I’ve had a similar problem with my tablet. If you use keyboard, press F10. It will disable mouse buttons. And there’s a chance the problem will be partially solved (My tablet still bugs sometimes, but this does not make me miss notes.)

Tell me if it worked!

Problem Details:
What the title pretty much says. Regardless of what key it is, the left click just doesn’t function. For example, if X is the key for left click, it won’t work. However if I set X as the key for right click then no problems occur. With that, I doubt the issue comes from the keyboard.

When I tap the key for left click on a hit circle, it will read it as a miss. And when I tap/hold it on a slider, it’ll read it as a slider break and give me a combo of 100.

Anyone know how to fix this?

And today was the first time it happened, and I don’t have OS TabletPC support enabled.

UPDATE: Enabling OS TabletPC doesn’t solve the issue.

Do you play with a tablet and drag? Try disabling mouse buttons (F10)

I spectated him to see what is going on and here is what happens:
His M1 is permanently pressed down but does NOT register taps
https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/5044937
However once he starts trying to use K1 his M1 will get released with some kind of delay therefore getting him 100s on sliders.

So the problem seems to be that dragging the pen seems to be detected as relevant for input as in blocking K1 but without actually doing something.
I’m not too familiar with spectating dragging-players but I think having M1 permanently register as being held down is not the standard behaviour.
Since I got no clue about tablets and possible settings due to being a mouse player it would be nice if someone with more expertise could follow up on this.

I realized that hovering solves this issue so I changed my tablet area and then I decided to change back to my old area (i dont know why) and when I tried dragging for some reason the issue fixed itself.

And because of that, I figured that switching back and forth tablet areas resolve this issue.
