Just Sharing This Mouse Problem

I have a Microsoft USB wired mouse and it has been acting strangely over the past week.
I tried to make changes from the control panel, without success.
Finally I replaced it with a mouse that I hardly use for my laptop and this one seems to work well.

I find that dust gets in the laser hole and can cause weird behaviour. Blowing it out usually helps.

I favour that solution too.

I am going to dismantle it completely and give it a thorough cleaning.
I see one screw in the middle but I know that the feet hide some latching mechanism and I don't have a tool to pry them off.
Will try a needle when I have the time.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

If it is a mini mouse with a thin twin cable and fitted length adjuster they are notorious for failing at the mouse entry point, causing intermittant connections, I have a drawer full of them as my wife refuses to use the pad on the laptop but hates big mice

Not a mini. Just a standard Microsoft mouse bought in 2013.
I will enjoy dismantling it over the weekend.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The mouse I have here is notoriously picky on the colour (or texture) of the table underneath it. Only a dark grey or blue satin sheen surface will do.

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
Got lots of Logitech M215 cordless ones (don't like corded mice - the cables seem to get caught in "everything" - but just had to take a couple apart to clean them, and looks like I need to do that to at least 1 more. In those mice, the screws are under the feet below the cover over the battery compartment - somewhat difficult to reassemble until you get the "knack"!
