How to connect a mouse?

Mouse - the main assistant PC user. Previously, we dealt with only one type of mice that were connected to a computer using a special connector, but now there are mice with a USB cable and even wireless ones. In this article we will discuss how to connect a mouse of any type to a computer.

Classics of the genre

If you have a good old mouse with a PS / 2 connector, then the whole connection comes down to a very easy task - just plug the mouse into the appropriate PS / 2 port of the computer, which is usually located on the back of the system unit. After a few seconds, the mouse will be detected and ready to go.

USB connector

Connecting a mouse with a USB connector is also very simple, plug the USB connector of the mouse cable into one of the computer's USB ports, wait a few seconds and start working with the mouse. No software installation is required.

Wireless mouse with receiver

If the mouse is wireless, then it comes bundled with a special receiver with a USB connector that needs to be inserted into any USB port of the PC.Turn on the mouse with a special button / lever on it, wait until the receiver and the mouse "make friends" and you can start working.

Bluetooth wireless mouse

A wireless mouse is very convenient, but if you purchase a model with a receiver, a problem arises - it is very easy to lose, and therefore, probably, a more convenient option is a wireless mouse with Bluetooth. However, keep in mind that such a mouse will work only if your PC has a Bluetooth module.

To connect a wireless mouse to a computer:

  1. Turn on Bluetooth on your PC and turn on the mouse itself;
  2. in the Bluetooth menu on the computer, start the discovery of a new network (the name of the mouse’s network can be found in the device documentation);
  3. Once the desired network is found, select it and click the "Connect" button.

All! After a few seconds, the mouse can be used.

Important point! The wireless mouse is supplied with batteries, and therefore do not forget to disconnect the mouse after work. In addition, keep in mind the timely replacement of batteries - most of the problems with wireless mice are due to the discharge of batteries.

What is more convenient?

At first glance, of course, the answer is obvious - the wireless mouse is more convenient than a wired one,However, if we consider that, firstly, a wireless mouse needs regular battery replacement, and the maximum range at which its interaction with a PC is possible does not exceed, as a rule, 3 meters, the answer is not so obvious. Of course, where it’s more economical to buy a wired mouse - it’s cheaper by itself and doesn’t require batteries, but for those who are tired of wires, it’s still better to deal with wireless.
