An HID (Human Interface Device) is primarily a type of computer hardware which allows the user to directly interact with the running software application. In most instances, the concept of HID is linked with the USB (Universal Serial Bus) port which means that majority of HID hardware are hosted on this interface. Since the USB port is not normally supported upon computer system boot up, the role of the device driver of the HID-compliant Genius Easy Mouse+ (USB) is to allow the underlying Operating System to utilize the hardware. The software which supports this device allows other applications to take advantage of its functionality. The driver is a separate application that is built into the Operating System. The Operating System mouse driver provides a general support feature while that of the Easy Mouse+ is explicit to the device.
