Hi, my name's Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to hook up a Mighty Mouse to a regular Windows PC. I have here a Mighty Mouse. It's made by Apple. And it basically, you know has a single click action that you're used to seeing from Apple computer mice. And it has a USB end. So I'm going to take this USB plug in here and I'm basically just going to plug it in to a USB port on my Windows PC. Now you should hear a little sound as the PC recognizes that a new hardware device has just been connected. And if you lift up your mouse you'll see that the optical laser has been turned on. So, if you can see my computer screen, I'm just going to move my mouse around and just like any other typical mouse that we're used to having on the PC I can click, I can move it around. I can use it just like a regular PC mouse, almost like you know any other kind that you'll find in the store. So it's that easy to connect a Mighty Mouse to your Windows PC. My name's Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to connect a Mighty Mouse to a regular PC.
