Only some PS2 emulators provide PC mouse support. In order to get PC mouse support, you must download a separate plug-in for the emulator. All emulators contain different plug-ins, each dedicated to emulating a specific part of the console. The downloads section of the main PCSX2 site contains the best keyboard and mouse plug-in that can be used in a PS2 emulator.

Open your PS2 emulator.

Click the "Config" menu, then press the "Configure" button.

Click the "Configure" button under the "First Pad" menu.

Under the "Mouse API" section, select the "Direct Input" button.
