A mouse is a fundamental part of the computer and without it, it can be very frustrating when using the computer. A mouse is basically classified as an input device and is commonly used as a pointing device for selecting various icons as well as other commands in the computer. Mice come in different designs, shapes and sizes depending on their respective manufacturers. Some mice use a ball that is located beneath them and the cursor on the screen moves when the ball is moved. Other mice are classified as optical and with these mice no ball is used and instead use light emitting diodes and photodiodes to detect movement which is relative to the underlying surface. When connecting a Mouse to the computer there several options. You can either connect through serial port or USB connection.
