As the Handshoe Mouse is a "Plug and Play" device the actual setup and operation of the mouse is very simple.
For the Wired Version simply plug the cord into the mini-usb port on the mouse and then plug the other end of the mouse cord into any available USB port on your computer. It will automatically install itself and in moments will be ready to go to work.
The Wireless Version of the HandshoeMouse is also very similar. As it contains a rechargeable battery it is generally recommended that it be connected for charging prior to usage. Charging is accomplished by simply plugging the cord into the mini-usb port on the mouse and then attaching to any live USB port on your computer. In order to use the mousel USB Micro Receiver needs to be plugged into an available USB port. The computer should recognize it in a few seconds and register the mouse for use.
NOTE: If mouse fails to respond or if you experience issues with the Wireless Light Click Force HandshoeMouse please follow these instructions.

Wireless Models and Battery Care
The rechargeable Lithium battery which powers the HandshoeMouse should provide the average user with several years of trouble-free service. Note: Over the life of the battery the period between charges will gradually decrease. This is a normal occurrence but by adhering to the following guidelines you should be able to partially reduce or delay this effect.
Should your battery get to the point where it will no longer hold a charge it is possible to purchase a replacement battery. It is recommended that these be replaced by a professional and HandshoeMouseCanada can provide that service.
