Mouse
 
Can a mouse wear out? I am having so much trouble with this. It does not pick up immediately when I click on something. Sometimes I have to press really hard on the button, sometimes three or four times, before it works.

Anyone know? Thanks.

Yes, is it wireless?

Yes, they can need to be replaced. If it is a wireless mouse then it may just be that the batteries are jiggered.

Sometimes they accumulate a lot of grunge/dust etc on the bottom as you slide it about over a period and that can impair their functionality, worth cleaning the bottom of it and see if it helps.

But don't put it in the washing machine or dishwasher

Have you not got a plug in mouse to double check.?

I Keep a plug in ,just as a check on the wi fi mouse.

The mouse is wired, i.e. a plug in. I had already thought about dirt etc. but the bottom is clear.

I have just bought two mouses (mice?), one wireless and the other wired. So hopefully one of these will work.

As I recall, the last time I changed the mouse, (wireless to the current wired version) I just connected it and the computer picked up that there was something new and did whatever computers do so that the mouse became operational. I assume this has not changed?

Yes that should still apply.

I know this sounds crazy ,but I now use a wired mouse ,because the wi fi one I had kept doing same as Maisie's one ,yet when I checked the batteries they were fine ,but just out of curiosity I put in new ones and it worked perfect ,even though the old ones had plenty left in them . ???? Someone mentioned the word Static is sometimes the reason .The answer to the static problem was to unplug PC from mains and leave unplugged for a couple of hours to see if that was the problem in a wired or a wi fi mouse .
