Default Can't Click and Drag With Right Mouse Button!

For some reason I cannot click and drag with my right mouse button. The left mouse button can drag fine, and when I invert the settings so the left mouse button performs the functions of the right mouse button and vice versa, they both work fine, which is what really confuses me.

Any ideas on what is wrong?

Also if I hold down the right mouse button and let go, the right-click registers when I let go. And if I swipe my mouse over an icon and time the right-click just right, I can move it slightly with a split-second drag.

Mostly it matters in games, because I can't aim down the site of a gun by holding the right button down, and I have to use the buttons on the side of the mouse instead, which can get annoying.

I just read through what you said three times and I still have no idea what you are referring to.
Your mouse works correctly when the left and right button are reversed?
A lot of what you said is just the way a mouse works...

Am I missing something?

Default Re: Can't Click and Drag With Right Mouse Button! in the game when you right click it doesn't aim down the gun sight? Or it just aims down for a split second? And holding the button down doesn't work?
