Try installing the software that came with the mouse. if none came with it then go to the manufacturers website and down load the drivers. if none available then there might be something physically wrong with the mouse and you replace it.

I successfully installed the driver for the Kensington pocket mouse on my S7 notebook, but I cannot activate it to take over the job of the touch pad.


Wireless Installation

Plug in the receiver to your usb port. Install batteries to mouse.

To establish a wireless connection, press the connect

button on the end of the receiver. Then, press the

connect button on the bottom of the mouse.

Click a button on the mouse to go..

Repeat this procedure when replacing the batteries.

IMPORTANT: This wireless device is similar to an FM radio, by

adjusting the antenna you can get better reception. You may

also want to experiment with different locations and positions

of the receiver.


The little light on the receiver should light up and flash fast untill it sees the mouse signal.

My Kensington 72216 mouse makes selections automatically.


Have you installed the drivers for your mouse? Sounds like you need to install the drivers. I looked on there site and they don't have separate drivers for each mouse. I'm guessing you need to download the mouse works program and install it. Here is the link to the website to get that software. After you install that software for the operating system your working on, your mouse should work fine. If i helped please leave me a rating. If i didn't help, comment and ill try again.

Have you tried to resync the mouse with the receiver. Usually,you need to press the button on the reciever first, then quickly hit the button on bottom of the mouse.

There is a none visible button under the word Kensington on the top off the mouse. Push the word itself and the mouse front and back will separate......... Hope this helps!

Kensington Mouse


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
