Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse
Are there wireless computer mice that don't have to be directly in front of the adapter so they can be used?
Is there any such thing as a wireless mouse that works perfectly within about an 18-20 inch radius?
I've used a microsoft optical deskpro setup for years. My keyboard & mouse both work perfectly with the receiver about 3 feet away on the opposite side of my desk. Neither is directly in front of the receiver and it has not been a problem. You can see the options at the microsoft website. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.
Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.
Insert batteries into your mouse.
If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.
Hope this helps
