Installation:



Installation of this mouse is pretty straightforward. Plug the AC power adapter into the back of the recharging station. Plug the USB receiver into an open USB port on your computer. Flip the power switch on the bottom of the mouse to “on”, and place the mouse on the charging station. When the mouse is fully charged (the battery and three squares all light up), the mouse is charged and usable.



To use all of the features that this mouse includes, you will have to install the Logitech SetPoint software. This should be an easy step, as like most programs that run in Windows XP, simply place the included CD into your drive and follow the onscreen instructions. However, I experienced a number of problems here. I ran the install, following all the instructions, and the mouse did not work. I ran it again, and the mouse still did not work. After a third time, I decided to check Logitech’s website for advice. There, I found a small note saying that if you had a previous version of SetPoint installed, you may need to uninstall it. After determining that my previous installation was an earlier version, I uninstalled it, and did another fresh install. I also found a note on their site about running the Connect Utility. This will ask you to turn the mouse power on, hold the left mouse button while clicking the right button five times, and then release the left button. I did this, and my mouse still did not respond. I again tried reinstalling, and after a total of seven attempts to install, the mouse finally was recognized. It has worked flawlessly ever since. I do not yet know if this was a Logitech software issue, or if it had something to do with the prior install, or the fact that my current system is pretty loaded up. This was not a new install on an otherwise clean, brand new system. Whatever the cause, my persistence paid off, and it works now.



After the software is installed, you can open up SetPoint and adjust everything from custom button functions, to mouse speed, to the top and thumb-wheel functions. These settings can be set for regular usage or for specific programs. For example, you could set the top scroll wheel to always freewheel when using Internet Explorer, but to always ratchet when using your favorite music program. These settings are simple to change, and are all a matter of personal preference. As such, I will not go into great detail of this area, as the program is well laid out and simple to understand.
