[Question] What is the use of side mouse buttons?

Imgur

Hello members,

I bought gamdias gaming mouse few months ago i want to know what is the use of side mouse buttons?

I personally use the two side buttons for forward and back, it works in web browsers and windows explorer perfectly.

You could also try some of the other actions in the list, including:-

Cut, Copy and Paste
Undo
Show the Desktop
Next/Previous track (for media playback)
Open any program
Simulate any keystroke or combination of keystroke.

In games the extra buttons can be used to perform actions like side way movements,slide through the gates ,crouch,stealth movement etc.
