Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am needing to purchase a 7-9 wired programmable USB mouse from Amazon.  It seems that most of them are geared toward gaming which brings me to the point of my upcoming question.   Can a gaming mouse be programmed to carry out business related applications like opening and closing an application, automatically storing usernames and passwords for different accounts, opening and closing browser windows, and so forth?  Realizing that a 7-9 button wired USB mouse can be pricey, I am more interested in purchasing one from Amazon within the $35 and below price range.

            Any suggestions and links given in reply to this question will be deeply appreciated.

            Thank you
