Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

1 Answer

I got a new PC and am using the same Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 that I had with my old PC. The mouse works for the normal functions, but the magnifer which worked on the old PC by pressing the button on the right side of the mouse does not work. How do I fix it so the magnifer button will work on the new PC which is Windows 7?

You can download the software for this mouse at Microsoft's site for this mouse. Just select your version of Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit) and your language and it will download. Install that and see if that button does what you want. If not there is usually a configuration utility on the start menu or in the control panel that will let you customize it all the buttons to an insane degree.

Side note: if you're not sure if you're using 32 or 64-bit Windows go to start then right-click computer and select properties. On the window that comes up there is a line that says System type: which says which you have.

SOURCE: Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 Magnification Issue

Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud

Pairing code for Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000


Not really a code, just first press button on top of your receiver and then the button on the bottom of the mouse. The receiver LED should stay green when they are connected. If this does not happen check that you are using IntelliPoint Mouse Software. See more:

I bought the microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000 at a garage sale and i dont know how it connect it to my computer.


Should be two parts to this mouse. one part will go into the usb port to communicate with the mouse, and the other part is the one you use. If you have both parts then check the batteries in the mouse, if you didn't get both parts then you have to go buy a new mouse (preferably the same) and you will have a spare mouse.

The wireless mouse works but the laser 5000


press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.

Can I use a new MS wireless mouse to replace my existing MS wireless mouse. Currently my mouse and keyboard connect together on the same wireless USB device. Could the new mouse be detected and be used...


I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
But Best of luck.
