A cfg can be made for the app that tells the driver to Ignore it.
E.g., our shipped 3DxHome.xml cfg.
You may have to experiment with the Transport field to identify which transport mechanism needs to be shut off.

Would be great to if disabling the default driver behavior for Chrome and MS Edge.
You can simply stop the driver. See the "Stop 3DxWare" shortcut in the Start menu.

Hi- I was diagnosed with repetitive motion syndrome in the thumb due to regular 2D mouse use, and found the space mouse design very ergonomic for me. Could someone help me configure the Space Mouse as a 2D mouse? I just want the joystick to move the cursor at all times, for all applications.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi, I am also looking for the 2D solution like Rodrigoil87. My OS is Win 10. I want to move the cursor using 3DConnexion stick

I'm also looking for this. The link in the original post of this thread is to a forum/page that doesn't seem to exist anymore. I've asked this question already on here but either this forum is also dead or it's just not possible to do this anymore?

Are you looking to use the 3D mouse in 3D applications at all?
