I'm away from home and left my usb mouse behind. I've been loaned a Microsoft wireless mouse but its not recognised. Never used a wireless device before.

I'm using my Win 8.1 lappie, and it's frustrating the crap out of me having to use the touchpad.

I have the mouse itself, but no driver disk.

Most have a receiver / dongle that you plug into a USB port. Have you got the receiver?

:+1: Also look under the mouse in the battery compartment, some have a place to store the receiver in there.

If it's blu-tooth you have to pair it etc, bit more involved.
