Is it possible to change the function of the new Sculpt Windows mouse button to have it perform another function instead of bringing up the Window menu?

Yes, just install the Microsoft IntelliPoint software... aka Mouse and Keyboard Center.

The IPS only allows you to change the swipe behavior of going up and down not the actual functioning of the button press.

You actually need the Mouse and Keyboard Center - http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/downloads/mouse-keyboard-center

You can assign buttons/keys to perform different commands in different programs. For example, you can assign the same button/key to activate Digital Ink when in PowerPoint, a macro when in a game, and the Magnifier when in any other application.

Reassign a button or key for a specific application

1. Click App-specific settings. If you’ve already added applications, a list of applications displays.
2. To add a new application to the list, click Add New.
3. From the displayed list of applications installed on your computer, click the one you want to add.
4. Click the application whose button/key assignments you want to change. A list of current button/key command assignments displays.
5. Click the button/key whose assignment you want to change. A list of the most commonly used commands displays.
6. To view more commands, click View all commands.
7. Some commands have an InfoTip icon on the left. Click this icon for more information about the command.
8. To change the assignment, click the command you want.
9. To disable the button/key, click Disable this button.
10. Click Back to return to the previous screen.
11. Repeat steps 4-7 for each button/key whose assignment you want to change.
12. To restore the default settings, click Restore Defaults, and then click Restore to confirm

Please try this on your Mouse Center. No where does it say that you can do this to change the function of pressing the blue Window button on the mouse only the swipe.

Unless I am missing this you cant reassign that key using the Mouse Center. Looking for the mouse equivalent of SharpKeys for the keyboard.

I'm guessing if it is supported, you should see the app specific settings menu across the top, like so -

It looks like you have the Surface Touch Mouse. This is for the Sculpt one that has a dedicated Windows key:

I was stating that if you don't see app specific settings, that I guess it isn't supported on the model you have. Even if it isn't "officially" supported, you may be able to manually remap it with Auto Hot Key - http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/misc/Remap.htm
