A Mouse Driver is software which connects your computer to your mouse or similar pointing device. Most modern operating systems such as Windows 10 can connect to a standard mouse without extra software. However, a mouse with advanced features such as extra buttons or trackballs requires additional driver software. After upgrading from one version of Windows to another, problems can occur. The reason may be that your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows. Downloading and installing the latest driver for your specific mouse make and model can fix these types of errors.
Many Mouse problems can be fixed by updating the drivers. After you upgrade to Windows 10, problems can occur because your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows. There are two ways you can update your Mouse drivers.
Option 1: Update Mouse drivers manually - Use DriverGuide to find the correct driver for your device and operating system. Next, download and install it by following the step by step instructions. You‘ll need average to intermediate level computer skills to use this method.
Option 2 (Recommended): Update Mouse drivers automatically - Even computer newbies can update drivers with just a few clicks of a mouse. Use trusted software to identify, download and install the newest driver updates for your PC in one step. Your old drivers can be backed up and restored if you encounter any problems. You‘ll need novice to beginner level computer skills to use this method.
To get the latest Mouse driver, including Windows 10 drivers, you can choose from our list of most popular Mouse downloads or search our driver archive for the driver that fits your specific Mouse model and your PC‘s operating system.
Once you have downloaded the new driver, next remove the current Mouse driver. On a Windows PC, you do this by using a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices attached to the PC, and the drivers associated with them.
In Windows 8.1 & Windows 10, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager
In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager
In Windows 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager
In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager
In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button
The mouse driver should typically be located under a category called "Mice and other pointing devices."
Locate the device that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.
Click the Driver tab.
Click the Uninstall button and follow the instructions.
To reinstall, you can either insert the disk you have from the manufacturer, or run the installer you have downloaded onto your computer and follow the instructions.
If you want to just update the driver instead of removing it, you can click the Update Driver button on the Properties window, and follow the instructions.
If you do not have the skill level or time to update your Mouse driver manually, or are having difficulty finding the correct driver, you can do it automatically with the Mouse Driver Update Utility.
The Mouse Driver Update Utility is an intelligent program which will automatically recognize your computer operating system and device. Then, it will find the correct drivers for it. There is no need to know which specific operating system you have, and there is no risk of downloading and installing the wrong driver. The Mouse Driver Update Utility eliminates mistakes when installing or updating drivers.
You can scan for driver updates automatically with the FREE version of the Mouse Driver Update Utility, and complete all necessary driver updates with the premium version.
Run the Mouse Driver Update Utility and click the green Scan Now button. The Mouse Driver Update Utility will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
Click the Update Driver button next to the Mouse driver. The correct version will be downloaded and installed automatically. Or, you can click the Update Your Drivers Now button to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
