    Talking Moddies, this isn't asking for help..OK
    My mini mouse went pear shaped on me today so I thought, good time to buy a new 'Wireless Mouse'.
    Well I got it home and started to install the little thing when all of a sudden it dawned on me.
    How do you install a wireless mouse with out the help of a 'Mouse' just a tad hard for an old bloke to work out.

    So off to the shed to find an old mouse from my stock and that's the way I fixed it...bummer.

    What would you do if you didn't have a spare

    as long as you can remember the keyboard shortcut to focus on the menu bar, you should be ok.

    i didn't even think about that coach.

    plug 'em in, may not work perfectly (much too slow or too fast), but should work.


    and knightlie and MUDCRABS; right from the switcher f.a.q.

    Q: How do I switch the focus to the Apple on the menu bar like I could use the Windows key to open the start menu?
    A: CTRL+F2, or on a notebook model you may have to Fn+CTRL+F2. Use the directional arrow keys to move anywhere else on the menu bar and then when you have your selection highlighted then press enter.

    But........................how do you get to the f.a.q......LOL
    You forget, it's dead in the water

    And it won't work by just plugging in as you have to switch on 'Bluetooth'

    But don't let it worry you, it's done now.
