Mouse left click half the time misbehave

Almost half of the time the left-click of the mouse just don't left-click as it supposed to.  

  • When Dragging, we left-click it, hold it and drag - half the way it release the "left-click" when we actually didn't release it in the mouse.  
  • When Highlighting or Marking in order to cut or select items, it stops half way like if we release the left button of the mouse.

Super annoying.

In order to work, we have to "really" press the left button of the mouse harder - that makes it work.

We have Windows 10 Pro latest updates and a Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Bluetooth mouse.

Note, we have connected a cable mouse on the computer and same reaction, so it is not the Microsoft Bluetooth mouse (maybe?)

How can we solve this?

try reversing the left and right buttons on the mouse - to see if it behaves the same
also - if the problem is recent, you can do a system restore to a date all was ok

Yes, just tried it works fine (obviously now is right-click).
i was thinking it could be a bad micro switch; but that can't be since you had the same with another mouse
so try changing the click speed settings, or the system restore, assuming it was ok before?

the mouse in problem is bluetooth
i see you install for that mouse a softwareuninstall the software  - and test with an usb mouse then
the only possible source i see  is that software

For testing purposes, I stood using the "wired" mouse (a cheap maxell mouse) and no problem.

I still have the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Bluetooth mouse connected; I use it randomly and it reflects the problem.

I used another "wired" mouse and it also reflects the problem.

So yes, could it be the mouse "software"?

That said, I really want to use Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Bluetooth mouse, is there a software or drivers that would make this device works better?
you can Always uninstall /reinstall the software to test.
also - check the available settings - and change them all , to see what influence they have
and look if there is no later version, or update for it

Which doesn't really make sense as that implies a hardware fault.  And you are also getting the same problem with a wired mouse as well.  Very strange.

Test the Sculpt mouse on another computer and see if it behaves properly there.  If it doesn't check the battery and possibly replace the battery.

No joy then create another user and test the mouse/mice with the new profile.  This shouldn't be the problem but won't hurt as a quick check.

no sense whatsoever.  Tried new user profile same problem (remember it is not constant).

Anyways, thank you all - conclusion the 2 mouse are faulty (only conclusion I can get to).
