A 3D wireless optical mouse is a high-tech mouse that connects to your laptop via a USB receiver. This is an ideal accessory if you don't want to have to deal with a mouse cable getting tangled and twisted while you are trying to use your computer. And since it uses an optical beam to operate, there is no rubber ball on the bottom of the mouse that gets jammed and stuck. This means the mouse will always work on a smooth surface.

  3. 3

    Slide the top cover of the mouse back onto the unit until it locks in place.
