How to add your mouse device to PC and Mac (e.g. Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse)

I recently bought a new Bluetooth mouse for my laptop… a Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse. It’s a very beautiful mouse with a very good quality. It has a magnetic battery cover for it’s two AAA batteries that are easily mounted on the same side. The mouse clicks are firm and the entire mouse gives you a nice feel while the scroll wheel has a good texture. The only think you might not like is the click noise, something that I personally like even if it’s quite loud.

This mouse is very easy to connect to your Windows or macOS device.

For Windows devices:

1. Go to Windows Settings

2. Go to Devices and choose Bluetooth

3. Press the power/pair button on the back of your mouse. Keep that button pressed for around 5 seconds until the blue light starts blinking and the device will appear on the Bluetooth devices list.

4. Press the Pair button to get your mouse connected.

Your mouse is now connected and you can start using it.

 

For MacOS devices:

1. Go to System Preferences -> Bluetooth

2. Press the power/pair button on the back of your mouse. Keep that button pressed for around 5 seconds until the blue light starts blinking and the device will appear on the Bluetooth devices list.

3. Press the Pair button to get your mouse connected.

And that should be all … just go to System Preferences -> Mouse to configure your mouse.
