  • Insert the manufacturer's installation disc, if available, into your computer's disc drive. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the required software and drivers. If no installation disc is available, look for the most recent version of the device-driver software at the manufacturer's official website.
  • Locate the sync button on the bottom of the wireless mouse, if applicable. Following the manufacturer's specific instructions, press and hold the sync button for the required duration to pair the mouse with your computer and wireless receiver.
