Mouse quit working
Logitech wireless mice operate in a slightly different

Wireless mice need batteries, they need to be turned on and
they need an interference-free radio environment.
One advantage of wireless mice is that they tend to function

Logitech wireless mice operate at 2.4 GHz, which is in the

supplies, monitors, cellular telephones and garage door openers.
Place the mouse on a flat surface that doesn't reflect.
Avoid metal surfaces too.
