    How do I do this? My mouse doesn't have a middle button to open the menu, and I can't find anything in the Controls menu to let me re-bind that command! Can anyone offer a suggestion, or point me to something in the Settings menu that I may have missed?

    @ubi-nacho You refer to "Options Menu -> Controls -> Customise Controls"? I've already tried that, and gone up and down the whole list, at least a dozen times - I cannot find any reference to accessing the Runes Menu in the 'Customise Controls' menu. The command to access the base Inventory screen ("I"), yes, but the only place I can find in the game interface that refers to accessing the Runes Menu is the screen shown below, which appears when I open an item's description - and currently has that command mapped to [Centre Mouse Button], which I do not have.

    @trace_coburn I'm sorry to hear that you are unable to find an option to change the middle mouse button in the key binding settings.

    I will forward this on to the development team.

    maybe assigning a key to this will do the job ("Lock Target")

    (I did assigned F8, but it was for another test, didn't tried the rune menu with it, so I'm really not sure it will do the job)





    Good luck to you 🙂

    I did a test on PS4 with assigning F8 to the middle mouse button of my mouse (Auto-Lock) =

    1. I could lock ennemies by pressing F8
    2. F8 does nothing to the runes menu, still need to use the middle mouse button for the runes menu


    ( seems it is somehow "hardcoded" or "hardlinked" to the middle mouse button )

    Nice day to all 🙂

    @Trace_Coburn

    by any chance, have your mouse any other button than Right click and Left click ?
    (something more or less like "page forward" or "page up" buttons)

    @azullfr Apart from LMB, RMB and the scroll-wheel, my mouse has two buttons on the left (thumb) side, with 'forward' and 'back' arrows on them, which the drivers apparently interpret as Mouse Button 3 and Mouse Button 4. I tried rebinding 'lock target' to MB4 ("back"), like you did, and just as in your case, it didn't help with the Runes Menu.

    maybe rebiding one of the mouse buttons to "middle click" in windows or using a third party software for windows will help, I saw these infos in this Topic :

    Hi @trace_coburn, sorry to hear you are still experiencing this issue. Just to rule out any easy fix which may have been overlooked, are you able to click down on your mouse scroll wheel as this is often counted as an additional input?

    @ubi-litten I've tried that as well - no joy. 😢 FWIW, I've just doubled-checked the branding, and I'm working with a Cooler Master Devastator II keyboard/mouse set-up.

    @trace_coburn Thanks very much for trying that for us. We've passed on your feedback about this to be looked into internally.

    In the meantime, there are certainly programs out there which can be used to rebind mouse buttons, or send keyboard keystrokes as mouse button actions. I can't recommend any particular programs for this, since we don't ourselves develop any such programs, but I see the topic linked by @azullFR describes such a program that may be helpful!

    My apologies for the inconvenience while we look into this.

    @ubi-thrupney What I find troubling is that this was an issue being discussed over a year ago and now back in August. I was able to re-assign my middle mouse button to another button on my mouse using logitech's software. BUT, I shouldn't have to use external software to trick the game into thinking the middle mouse button is another button. We can change the key binding of every other action in the game, except this one option that is extraordinarily important to gameplay? That is very disconcerting, especially since there isn't an in-game update for this even after over a year since the game's release. Maybe hire someone to be the "common sense checker person" to ask dumb questions like, "what happens if their middle mouse button doesn't work or they don't have a middle mouse button?"

    Just a thought...
