2 mice on 1 PC ??

  Lady Jane 21:10 25 Feb 2009


I'd like to add a second mouse to my PC (my little girl has just started using the PC but her hands are too small for a regular mouse)

Is there any way I can have 2 USB connected at the same time? Only will need to use one at a time, so 'switching' between the two would be perfect.

Any ideas / help etc greatly appreciated

This shouldn't be a problem with USB - just plugged in 2nd mouse into my PC - both work perfectly - and both control the cursor.

I have a PS2 connection for my mouse, i have just plugged in a USB mouse from my sons lappy and it moved the cursor straight away no need for switching
just use whichever one you want.
Have to say quite amazed it worked so well!!!

I to use 2 mice as one of them is bluetooth and sometimes if im not careful will run out of batteries.

I cant see any problems connecting 2 mice onto one pc.

Just whack the second mouse into the usb socket and your away.
