You simply push to either side using your middle finger. Look at the M305. You see those arrows? You push the wheel towards it.

I don't know how else to explain it.

Well, yeah. That's tilting to the side. My G5 has that. I still don't get how you'd tilt it back (unless you're using the mouse at a 90-degree angle).

I've never heard it called that. Doesn't work as Back on any of my three left-right tilt-able mice. In fact it would kind of defeat the whole point, which is to be able to scroll left and right.

Those d*** Britains

Edit: You can change all buttons to do about anything, you know. This is just what I know to be default on most mice.

I use the Logitech M310. Same thing as the M305 but bigger. Only $16.50 on Amazon: Amazon.com: Logitech Wireless Mouse M310 (Indigo Scroll) (910-002482): Electronics

Here's a picture for size comparison. [ATTACH=CONFIG]4859[/ATTACH]
