Introduction

It's an easy procedure to fix the problem. You can watch the mouse being disassembled for more help.

  • Take the mouse shell apart, held by 4 screws
  • Unsolder and replace the micro switch

I have found 3 different manufacturers which sell micro switch replacement part for Logitech Anywhere. I only have tried E-Switch.

  1. 2 screws are located under the battery stickers. 2 screws, one under each of the sliding pads under the mouse's nose.

  6. Desolder the micro switch and replace it with a new one, E-Switch TS20100F070S. Some have trouble to desolder the switch. You can eventually clip the tab to remove the switch. Once the switch is remove you can easily remove the solder tab. I use a Weller ST7 0.03" X0.79 mm ST Series Conical Tip to remove and solder the micro switch Just remember, the micro switch doesn't have a polarity. But the connectors will guide you which side the micro switch needs to face.

Thanks. Excellent guide.

Thanks, my mouse actually arrived out of the package with the double-click issue, and this fixed it. Needed pretty high-temp soldering iron to get OEM micro-switch off, and tight fit soldering the new one on the inside terminal, but otherwise pretty easy.

Got this mouse, had this problem, sent it off for an RMA. The one they sent back eventually developed this exact same issue. Here's to hoping I won't have to do this again for a while now. Thanks for the guide.

Ended up having to repeat the process for the right mouse button. This time I managed to knock off one of the solder pads. Eventually by applying a lot of pressure and heat though, I was able to get the switch to bind with whatever was left of it, although I still have no idea how long my fix will actually hold for. But, something to watch out for if you're doing this.

This is great as now i have a part number as when I pulled the original microswitch apart to fix it internally, the button flew away - never to be found.

These are great prices for little switches, however living in the UK means an expensive courier to £15 and a lounge wait. They simply do not sell these here in the GB :-(

The part with shipment is far cheaper than a brand new MX Anywhere mouse.

Thanks again for the info!
