Lost software for Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 1023
Mouse has gone a bit crazy, cannot left click, tried swapping buttons and that did not work. I have looked high and low for the cd so I can reinstall but cannot locate it. How can I get software for this?

The red light is connectivity to the dongle on the PC.
Check your mouse settings in Windows for the left mouse button settings.
Does the mouse move on the screen?
You can try reversing the mouse buttons to see if the button is defective. If you swap the buttons and now right mouse clicks do not work, the button is defective.
If you know that the battery is good then try this next.
There is a VERY tiny shark-fin shaped spring-loaded button on the bottom of the mouse that is pressed in, when you insert the receiver, while the mouse is not in use, that turns off the mouse to save the batteries. If you haven't used the mouse in a while, it can get stuck in the in position, so that when you pull out the receiver, it doesn't spring out and turn the mouse on (indicated by the red light on the bottom). If you notice that the light isn't coming on. Just try manually pushing in the little shark-fin thing a couple times to make it spring back out. After a couple times, you should be able to get it unstuck and the red light should come on.
After reading on Microsoft about replacing the batteries, down loading drivers and "press the button on the receiver and the
connect button the receiver" - I got frustrated and almost gave it flight. Then my wife stepped in
and realized that there was a green reset button on the USB connector as well.
(who knew?) SO.... you press the green light (which is a button) and release it....
should blink. Then go to THE MOUSE portion and press the connect button
for 5 seconds or so.... and wala...... One mouse that plays again! This ones gonna cost me! :) I hope this one works for ya!
