How to Connect a Logitech Wireless Mouse to Your Computer.When you buy a new Logitech wireless mouse, it should offer wireless or Bluetooth connectivity. It can even support both methods, giving you the freedom to choose the best way to pair with your PC or Mac.This tutorial will show you how to connect your Logitech wireless mouse to your computer via a wireless receiver or Bluetooth.
Connect a Logitech Mouse to Computer via Wireless Receiver
If your Logitech wireless mouse came with a standard USB dongle, simply plug it into a USB port on your PC or Mac, turn on the mouse, and it should be ready to go. We recommend that you avoid connecting the receiver to external USB hubs.If it comes with a Logitech Unifying receiver (you can recognize it by the orange Unifying logo), you’ll still be able to connect and work. However, if that doesn’t work, you must use the Logitech Unifying software to manually pair the mouse and receiver. In the meantime, use a wired mouse or trackpad to interact with your computer.
- Download Logitech Unifying Software on your PC or Mac. Then run the setup file and follow all the on-screen instructions to install it.
- Connect your Logitech Unifying receiver to a USB port on your computer.
- Launch the Logitech Unifying Software utility from the Start menu (PC) or Launchpad (Mac).
- Select Next on the Logitech Unifying Software welcome screen.
- Find the power switch on the side or bottom of the mouse and turn it on. If it’s already on, turn it off and then on again.
- The “We’ve found your mouse” screen should appear momentarily. Move the mouse – If the cursor moves, select the Yes radio button and select Next.
Select None if the cursor will not move to repeat the pairing process. You may want to connect to a different USB port and check the battery compartment for a battery insulation tab (remove it if you notice it) before doing so.
- Select Done.
If your Logitech wireless mouse displays the Unifying symbol but does not come with a Unifying receiver, you can purchase one separately to use this feature.Note. Logitech Unifying software can be used to connect up to six Logitech devices—wireless keyboards, mice, and trackpads—to a single Unifying receiver.Several of Logitech’s new wireless mice, such as the Logitech Lift Ergonomic, come with a Logi Bolt receiver (indicated by a green Bolt icon). As with the Unifying receiver, you can plug it in and use your mouse right away, or use the Logi Bolt app to manually pair.

If your Logitech wireless mouse works via Bluetooth (look for the Bluetooth logo on the mouse or packaging), you can set it up without using a wireless receiver if your computer also has Bluetooth capabilities.Some wireless mice, such as the Logitech MX Master, support both Bluetooth and Unifying/Bolt technology, so it’s up to you which of the two methods you choose.Note. If your mouse allows you to connect it to multiple Bluetooth devices, you must select the channel you want to assign to the device before you start, e.g. 1, 2 or 3 – Press the Pair button several times span> to switch between channels.
