There is an easy solution:
You can define different hotkeys to show LBC or show it as a pop up menu, etc.
And then just program your middle mouse button to trigger that hotkey.

Unfortunatelly I have a very simple mouse and it hasn't a special software for setting middle mouse button to do anything.

Attached is a quick hack to get pressing the middle mouse button to lead to a configurable key sequence being generated.

The attached settings.ini file makes the generated key sequence Control+Shift+B.

  • Place the settings.ini file and exe file in the same directory and launch the exe.
  • Configure LBC to show or come up as a pop up menu via Control+Shift+B.
  • Try invoking Control+Shift+B.

For more info on configuration of hotkeys see:
