Doesn't the wheel have a button function also?
With the mice I own you can press to wheel and this is the same as a old-fashioned middle-mouse-button-click

On a point of English grammar they are mice not mouses
A fun fact - the distance of a mouse move if measured in "mickeys" :ugeek:

Either mice or mouses works. Personally, I have always called them mousies.

That's what I use.
A couple of years ago I once tried a 5 button + wheelbutton mouse but my coordination level is permanently stuck at 2 buttons + wheelbutton.

Yes, but most of the times that enters the scroll mode, too.

I'm not talking about rodents - see a dictionary: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/mouses#Noun :idea:

My mouse has two wheels, I win. LOL The other wheel is for side scrolling. It also supports gestures, I never use either feature or the extra buttons. It does have three things I love.

1) It's big, you know what they say about guys with big hands... they have a big mouse. :D
2) Freewheel scroll wheel, if you have never tried one of these you will never go back to indexed wheel. You can switch between freewheel and indexed.
3) It can connect to up three devices independently, keyword is independently. There is button on the bottom to switch between devices.

Oxford dictionary wrote:Is the plural of mouse in the computing sense mice or mouses? People often feel that this sense needs its own distinctive plural, but in fact the ordinary plural mice is commoner, and the first recorded use of the term in the plural (1984) is mice

But let's leave this for the native speakers 8-)

Now there are 5 buttons and wheel instead of only 3 buttons.
I've got a mouse with 6 plus the wheel. :)
Surely not all of them topside!?

Mine has 7 and while working I was always blocked because the media player opened and I couldn't click any further in the online software. Therefore two buttons deactivated now. :mrgreen:
