After a couple of thousands clicks the Anywhere MX Mouse develops a phantom double click. This is due to a grove that develops on the inside of the button. It can be fixed with a piece of tape.

  • The front screws are underneath the front gliders. The can be removed with a butterknive or Plastic Opening Tool. The gliders have three layers, be careful not to seperate them.

  • The back screws are underneath the stickers with the battery images. You can either remove them, like I did, or just poke a hole into them to get to the screws.

  • After the four screws are removed, the top and the bottom part can be easily taken apart. In the top part the grove that was made by the click-sensor should be cleary visible. This causes the phantom double clicks.
