middle button disaster

So I’ve got a new computer, on which I’ve installed blender, but for some reason it doesn’t seem to recognise when the middle mouse button is being pressed.

I haven’t used blender in a couple of months so maybe I’m doing something stupid. But the middle button is definitely working in other packages.

Help! can’t stand having to use the keys to navigate the viewports.

Check your preferences panel.
Make sure Middle Mouse Button > Rotate View is in and paste on MMB is out.
But don’t quote me on that, but start and try those buttons.

Thanks J, didn’t work though. Already set like that.

It’s not quite such a disaster though, I forgot about alt+left mouse.

Would like to fix it though!

Ok this is weird, it recognises the middle button when I freemove and use the middle button to lock axis
