Confusion and Mass Hysteria!

I need to know how to rotate around a model without the use of a center mouse button… I’m stupid I know.

Describe the mouse that you are planning to use!

It has a middle mouse button, but when i try to use it it doesnt work. It does it on all of the computers at my school and its unhandy.

You can either use (left)ALT + LMB or the numpad 2-4-6-8.

i’m using my 3 button mouse and the MMB is for panning

but it depends how you program it in the user preference
you have a few options there
so may be you should check theses settings and pick what you prefer.
