I thought i would share this experience in the event someone else has a similar experience.
So i have a small logitech wireless optical mouse. Cool little device and i run it on a flex optical mousepad.
I thought (we all know what happened to thought) this would be my last mouse for a long time. Why? Well given there are only the two mouse switches as moving parts one would expect that if it gets to being past the infant mortality rate area of its lifecycle that it would go on for many years.
Wrong. Its been failing to "hold" on to a point when clicking on the screen holding down the mouse button and dragging the cursor across to highlight something to be able to say right click and copy paste .
Well its been weird not consistently doing it. Then in my paranoid state i started to suspect my actual computer of gremlins. Well while at a client the other day doing some work on Excell with them, it played up. My client suggested we swap mouse and sure enough his wireless mouse worked after install.
I am not going to diagnose any further, its going in the bin, and i will get a new one hopefully of the same kind because its been a good one until now.
So before you dive into your puter check out your mouse.
