Here are the steps on how to connect a wireless mouse to PC:
Step 1: While the computer is on, make a click on the start button and go to the control panel.
Step 2: In the control panel window, navigate through the device manager by going to the “Hardware and Sound” category then click on device manager.
Step 3: In the list of devices you will see in the device manager, choose mouse or pointing devices. If you see two pointing devices, choose the one that is not being used or has a question mark.
Step 4: Click on the wireless mouse and then click on “enable”. You have to check if it is enabled so you can connect it to your computer.

Step 5: Once you have done that, plug in the wireless mouse USB receiver back to your computer and click on the start button then go to “Devices and Printers”.
You will see that there is a new device connected called Wireless Mouse Receiver (or whatever name you gave it). If the device is properly connected, it will appear in the devices and printers window.

After you have done all of these steps, you can now use your wireless mouse on your PC without any trouble.
Make sure that the battery is still full so it will function properly. If there are hindrances in between the device, then some devices may not work or be connected with each other.
