Question about Microsoft Bluetooth 5000 Mouse
I have a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and i need to change the battery. I cant find any latch or button to open the mouse to put new batteries in it! I looked on the MS site and found nothing. Help. Where's the secret compartment?
There is actually no release button on my 5000. Between the white on-off button and the bluetooth synch button there is a finger notch. If you put your index finger in the notch (pointing toward the base of the mouse you can put your nail under the lip and the batter compartment opens right up. There is a horizontal slot in the battery cover - trying to pry that open does not work. The whole thing is well-cloaked but surprisingly easy when you figure it out!

Remove the battery cover from the back of the mouse by sliding off the
cover while pressing the release button at the bottom of the mouse.

If I remeber correctly yhe button is at the back of the mouse and covered by a symbol, it is a hidden button that will pop the battery casing open like a fuel door on a car.
just follow the centerline past the word microsoft to find it.
