How to Troubleshoot a Kensington Wireless Mouse

Founded in 1981, Kensington produces a range of computer based products, such as trackballs, mice, keyboards and laptop locks. Kensington's wireless mice require either an available USB port or a Bluetooth enabled computer and while USB ports are readily available on computers, Bluetooth is often a premium option. Further, Kensington software may not be compatible with your operating system, so always check for the latest updates prior to installing the "Mouseworks" program.
