Thinkpad trackpoint: scrolling and middle click possible


I'm using an X61s laptop (under Windows) that only has a trackpoint, not a touchpad.

The trackpoint has a scroll function that is activated by holding the middle button and then using the trackpoint to scroll. This is very useful and I don't want to miss it.

However, I would also like to use the middle button to open links in new tabs for instance.

Unfortunately, I have not found a setting that provides both functionalities at the same time. Does anyone know if and how it can be done?

Here are some links to people having the same problem, but no solution, unfortunately:

Here is a work around just posted using Autohotkey to simulate a scroll wheel while holding down middle click after a certain amount of time:
