Method 2: Discharge the static electricity

The Logitech mouse double clicking issue can be caused by static electricity buildup inside the mouse, especially if your mouse is a couple years old. To fix the issue, you can try discharging the static electricity. Here’s how:

1) Turn off your mouse.

2) Remove the batteries.

3) Press all the buttons repeatedly for 30 seconds. This will drain all the static electricity that may be trapped in the mouse.

4) Put the batteries back in the mouse.

5) Turn the mouse back on.

6) Once the mouse is reconnected, check to see if the double clicking issue is fixed.

If Method 2 doesn’t work for you, you can try Method 3.

Method 3: Check the mouse settings

If the double-click speed of the mouse is set too low, the double clicking issue can occur.
When the double-click speed is set very low, clicking at two different times may be interpreted as a double-click instead. So check the mouse settings and ensure the double-click speed is set properly.

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key, type “mouse settings”. Then select Mouse settings from the result list.

2) Scroll down and click the Additional mouse options link. Then the Mouse Properties window will pop up.

3) In the Mouse Properties window, check if Double-click speed is set too low.

If it’s set very low, increase it by moving the slider to the right. You can set it at the max value. After that, click Apply -> OK to save the changes.

If Method 3 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 4.

Method 4: Create a macro for your mouse buttons

To fix the issue, you can try creating a macro in Logitech G HUB for your mouse buttons. Creating a macro will add time delay after the button is pressed and the button is released. This may avoid mouse double clicking. Here’s how to do it:

1) Launch Logitech G HUB. If you don’t have installed this software, download and install it from Logitech’s official website.

2) On the Logitech G HUB dashboard, click on your mouse. This will open all of the mouse settings and options.

3) Select Assignments from the left side.

4) Go to the MACROS tab, and then click the “Create New Macro” button, then name it.

5) Set the macro type to “SEQUENCE”.

6) Add 10-20 ms delay for “ON PRESS” and “ON RELEASE” as shown in the screenshot below.

Once you’re done with creating the macro, bind the macro to the mouse button that has the double-clicking issue and then check to see if the double clicking issue is fixed.

Firstly, uninstall the mouse driver.

1) Open Device Manager.

Method 6: Check the microswitch of the button

If none of the above methods resolves the problem, it is likely that the microswitch of the button is causing the issue, especially if your mouse is already a couple years old. So the last resort you can try is to check the microswitch of the button.

To check the microswitch, you’ll need to open up the mouse. This requires a bit of technical skills. If you’re not comfortable doing this on your own, it’s recommended you contact IT support for help.

In most cases, you’ll need to replace the microswitch with a new one. In that case, you might want to buy a new mouse instead.
