Brand New Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000; Presenter buttons won't work on Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I just purchased a new Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000 on Amazon.  It set up fine with the downloaded drivers and the mouse mode seems to work fine.  However, the main reason I bought it is for the presenter function.  In presenter mode, the volume buttons on the bottom work.  The infrared works.  But the forward, reverse, and blackout buttons do not work.  I have a 8 month old Acer Aspire R7 and I am using PowerPoint 2013 from Office 365.  i am running Windows 8.1.   It appears to me that the driver needs to be updated for Windows 8.1.  I have seen others say they can't use the presenter buttons with 8.1.   Please update the drivers.  This is an obligation if Microsoft is going to sell/brand the presenter mouse after it updates the OS.  Thanks.
