How to Sync a Wireless Mouse to Microsoft

Updated February 21, 2017

Wireless mice connect to a Windows computer via wireless transmitter. This is a small connection adaptor that fits right into a USB port on the computer system. Once properly hooked up, the wireless mouse is able to communicate with the PC, just as a standard wired mouse does. The sync process is different from a Bluetooth mouse, as there is no actual pair process performed.

Plug the USB wireless transmitter into one of the USB ports on the computer (it does not matter what connection you use).

Press the "Power" button on the wireless mouse to turn it on. This automatically starts a wireless signal between the transmitter and the mouse.

Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer. In a moment, the installation wizard loads onto the screen.

Click "Next" then accept the license agreement. Select "Next" two more times and click "Install" to install the drivers.

Restart the computer and the wireless mouse is synced with the PC and ready for use.
