Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse Driver And Software Download, For Windows 10, Setup, Bluetooth, And Review – Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse is available in black and gray as well as a limited edition dark red model. Included in the retail package are a mouse, a 2.4GHz Nano USB receiver, two AA batteries and one package with a quick user guide and other documentation. Microsoft claims that the mouse will last up to 18 months before requiring a new battery.
A software disc is not included because the mouse automatically downloads what you need when connected to your PC. Windows 7, Vista and XP are listed as compatible operating systems. As a cellular mouse, Explorer Touch is smaller than an ordinary desktop mouse, making it easier to carry when you travel. This also means users with larger hands are more likely to have difficulty getting used to such a small mouse.
You can scroll up and down by swiping your finger in both directions. Additionally, you can press the top, middle and bottom touch strips for three additional click buttons. Just below the touch strip is a small battery LED indicator that turns green when you turn on the mouse and we consider to blink when the battery is low.
At the bottom of the mouse are two horizontal mouse feet, a BlueTrack laser, an on / off switch and a receiver dock. BlueTrack technology from Microsoft is similar to the Darkfield tracking system at Logitech because you can use a mouse on more surfaces than traditional lasers. The USB receiver locks the docking hole when traveling so you won’t lose it, a smooth yet thoughtful touch. The battery compartment is easily accessible and holds two AA batteries, one on each side.

How to Set Up Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse
1. Download and install the IntelliPoint Software on your computer (full link in Resources). If you have the installation CD, insert it into your computer’s CD/DVD-ROM drive and run the setup to install the IntelliPoint software.
2. Insert two fresh AA or AAA alkaline batteries into the battery compartment located on the bottom of your Microsoft wireless mouse. The size of the batteries used varies depending on the model.
3. Plug the USB receiver that comes with your Microsoft wireless mouse into an open USB port on the computer.
4. Locate the detected USB device in the notifications area on the taskbar, and then wait a few moments for the drivers to automatically install. When the process completes, a confirmation message appears in the notifications area.
5. If the driver doesn’t install automatically, unplug the USB receiver and restart your computer. Reconnect the USB receiver to an open USB port, and then wait for the drivers to install. When the process completes, move the mouse closer to the receiver. If both the receiver and mouse have pairing buttons, press them. If the IntelliPoint software launches, select the mouse settings, such as scroll and clicking speed.
