    Most of the "brick and mortar" stores that sold computer gear are gone from my neighborhood.
    They just couldn't compete with the lower web prices on almost everything.

    I'm wasting my time searching Google images for a mouse similar to my old Kensington 72121.
    (Please see attached image.)

    I wish I could find a new one accidentally stored away in some warehouse! I really liked this
    corded mouse.

    It's a 5-button mouse, but I never used the right-hand side button. Notice the big, comfortable
    thumb button. Most newer mice have small and awkward double button arrangements for
    junmping back and forth between web pages. I don't need this. The rubberized coating is
    also a great feature of the 72121.

    I checked the Kensington website, but they don't have anything similar to the 72121.

    All I want is a full size mouse with a comfortable thumb button. I always assign this
    button to the double-click.

    I know wireless mice are very popular, but I prefer corded mice.

    Can someone help me find what I'm searching for?

    Thank you Triple6!

    There used to be a store about 15 miles from my home that had at least 50
    mice lined up on a shelf. You could actually put your hand on a few dozen
    models until you found one that felt comfortable. They're gone of course,
    like all the others.

    For some reason, all the 5-button mice I found while googling had that double
    button arrangement on the left-hand side of the mouse. Obviously, millions
    of people are using this type of mouse, so I must be very clumsy. Actually,
    putting that button on the right-hand side of the Kensington mouse always
    seemed very strange to me. How did they imagine you would press that
    button? With your pinky?

    My only regret is that I didn't buy several Kensington 72121 mice while they
    were still available.

    Anyway, I'll look at the models you suggested, Triple6.

    Thanks again.
