GE Wireless Optical Mini Mouse Step-by-Step Setup (12 Steps)
By Melissa King
Your GE wireless optical mini mouse features a contoured design, smooth scroll wheel and an Office Selector feature that helps you open Microsoft programs with the click of a button. This feature comes in handy if you frequently use programs such as Microsoft Word or Internet Explorer. The mouse requires batteries to operate, but you can recharge the device by connecting it to your computer with the included USB cable. To set up the mouse, insert the batteries, link it to the receiver and install the Office Selector software.
Hold the mouse in one hand, with the GE logo facing up.
Insert a pointed object, such as the tip of a pen, into the battery compartment release at the front of the mouse. Hold down the battery compartment release with the pointed object.
Place the thumb of the hand holding the mouse just above the curved line on the left side of the mouse.
Push up on the left side of the mouse to slide off the battery cover.
Insert two AAA batteries into the battery compartment. Slide the battery compartment cover back onto the mouse until it clicks into place.
Link Mouse and Receiver
Insert the included mini-USB receiver into a USB port on your computer.
Insert your Windows operating system disc, if prompted.
Press the link button on the bottom of the GE wireless mouse, and then quickly press the link button on the receiver.
Install Office Selector
Insert the included Office Selector Software CD into your computer's disc drive.
Click "Next" to begin the software installation. Select your language and other options, and then click "Next" again to install Office Selector Software on the computer.
Press the Office Selector button on the top of the mouse to open a menu of Microsoft Office programs. Click the program that you want to open.
Tap the Office Selector button again while in a program to see more shortcuts and options, such as Save, Print and Find.
- You can use the mouse during the charging process.
