Mouse Controls in Sims 4 not working? :(

★★★★ Novice

I play sims 4 on my laptop often, and have never had problems with my mouse. However, today, after pausing my game to go and do something else the mouse controls seemed to have changed? Rather than left clicking to drag around the screen, I am only able to click on things. Also, when i right click, I can no longer rotate the screen. Instead it just drags around the screen. I've tried shutting down the game and restarting, and playing around with the game settings but neither have worked.. Anyone know how to fix it?

Check in your settings, you might have turned the Sims 3 mouse on or off.

I can't find the settings, only 'game options'. Where exactly will I find the option to turn the sims 3 mouse on/off?

Control + Shift + Tab or by pressing Esc -> Game Options -> Controls and Camera -> Sims 3 Camera.

Thank you so much! I've solved the problem.

However... now I can't use cheats? I keep entering ctrl + shift + c, yet the bar just wont pop up.

Sorry to be a pain.
