Anyone know whats wrong with my computer mouse?
are you using a wireless mouse? time to change the batteries. or are you using an infra red mouse? your desk is now shiny and the IR beam is bouncing around on it. put something non-glossy under it like a sheet of plain paper. try again or are you using a rollerball mouse? take the ball out and clean it, clean the bits that the ball rubs against inside the hole the ball goes in.
Will a computer mouse work if it has been dropped in the water?
Yes, it depends since they are in plastic cases but leave it out for a week and it should work.. You may need to blow dry it abit because sometimes the water may not be able to escape very well. Nothing will happen bad if it has water anyway, it will just not work.
what's inside of a computer mouse?
Where can I find a computer mouse which is silent?
the microswitches in a mouse make the clicking noise - i do not know of a microswitch with a silent action. if there is a mouse out there that uses pressure switches rather than microswitches then that would be quieter but the mouse would be of very poor quality. surely the noise of the keyboard is far louder than the mouse? i think you should either 1.re arrange the sitting room in order to be further away from the pc 2.turn the tv up 3.wear ear plugs or- 4. see a doctor about the state of your nerves!
Is the computer mouse about to go extinct?
The Evolution of the MousenWe did some digging on the history of the computer mouse. It's perhaps technology's most innovative tool, matched with the most peculiar name. The mouse was invented in 1964 by Douglas Engelbart. The original was comprised of two metal wheels sending signal to a circuit board cased up in a wooden box. The invention was called the "mouse" because of its literal resemblance to our small furry friends.
Check out this video of Engelbart demonstrating the computer mouse for the first time in 1968. Since then, the more functional trackball mouse was brought to us in 1972 by Bill English, and the modern day optical mouse was delivered in 1980. Improvements have been made for optimal computer screen navigation since then, but is there a next step in computer mouse evolution? Has it met its end?The End of the MousenStatistically, there's a 15% chance that you accessed this blog post using a touchscreen / not using a mouse. This number is steadily rising as tablets, smartphones, touchscreen mp3 players, and touchscreen computers are becoming more prominent in the technology market. After all, is not it easier to simply touch where you want to navigate on a screen rather than coordinating through a separate device?A perfect application of touchscreen technology is Internet browsing. If you come across a picture icon that you want to enhance, just touch it. If you want to go back to a page that you were just on, just touch the back arrow, or touch and swipe your finger backward. You can easily navigate through text boxes by simply touching them to place your cursor.
Word processing is just as easy to navigate without a computer mouse. You can use your finger to highlight text, place your cursor, make font edits, copy and paste, and do literally everything that you can do with a mouse. Navigating through your operating system is just as simple as web browsing and word processing. Simply touch the programs and menus that you want to open. It does not get much more intuitive than that.
Without a doubt, technological products are advancing in this direction of extreme intuition using touchscreen technology. As more tablets, smartphones, and touchscreen computers enter the market, more people will pick them up and discover the extreme ease of navigating your computer's software without a computer mouse. Over time, technology producers will continue to wean us off of our use of the mouse and move us toward touchscreen technology until the majority of us see no need to pair a computer mouse with our devices. Touchscreens will most likely get larger and less cluttered to allow for easier navigation with our fingertips, and more "gesture control" technology will be introduced to even surpass the need to touch the screen for some applications. The sky's the limit with new technology, and we will all be just as giddy about these new possibilities as Engelbart was about his wooden mouse.
Imagine: A Workday without a MousenAre you nervous about the potential of losing your computer mouse? For some of you, it may seem as though you've just now become accustomed to using it (but hopefully not). Rest assured, there will always be an option to use a mouse with your computer, even though it's function will become superfluous. Think of it like watching movies via video cassette. The option is still available to purchase cassette players and hook them into televisions, but the latest movies will not be released on that format. Is the computer mouse about to go extinct?.
