Do you have to use the trackball or can you also drag it like a traditional mouse? Chevron Icon

It only works as a trackball.

Is the dongle USB 3.0 or USB 2.0? Chevron Icon

Yes, with KensingtonWorks software.

Can this trackball scroll sideways as well? For example, can the trackball scroll from left to right on an Excel spreadsheet? Chevron Icon

The trackball functions of our default settings should work with Photoshop and Illustrator, but to perform specific functions, you’ll need to customize with KensingtonWorks and adjust your settings by application.

It’s plug-and-play by default, however free downloadable KensingtonWorks software lets you customize the buttons and functions. Some buttons, such as the Bluetooth pairing button, are not programmable.

How many programmable buttons are there? Chevron Icon

There are nine programmable buttons.

Can it be used on any surface, such as your thigh? Chevron Icon

Yes. A trackball can work on surface since the ball will always rotate within its socket.
