Aw, bless, ray. You may get another mouse, but things will never be the same.....
Sniff sniff, true, so true. Love is never the same the second time a round. The real problem is of course, that I don,t seem able to scroll down using the keyboard si this is typed on the IPad. Very slow!
You should have up/down/left/right arrow buttons on your keyboard, Ray. These will take your cursor where you want it to go. For longer periods of reading, use the PgUp/PgDn buttons to move you down a whole chunk.
You will enjoy choosing a new one! My new one glows electric blue and pink (a gift), in the middle of the night I can always tell if the computer has been left on. It is very cheery and in such girly bad taste I love it.
We had a battery one once but I prefer to have one plugged in directly so that the power comes via the USB port. Tesco do a reasonable one for six quid.
I live my life mouse freeA laptop with a touch padWill always be for meeee!;-)
Thanks for the info Perpetua (you'll train me yet), very useful.I have no idea what three quarters of the buttons on my keyboard are for.Another 40 years and I may begin to get some idea.
Hi Margaret, your mouse sounds very exotic I must say, though all I really want is one that works.
Colin, thanks for the suggestion, it sounds a good idea. The only problem then will be that I don't know how or where to plug it in. Sadly I really am as dim as I sound.
At the moment Broad, that is how I am working, but it is so slow it will drive me barmy (barmier), if I have to do it for long.
So sorry that nothing could revive your mouse - you'll soon get used to the new one! Freda from Dalamory (www.freda.org.uk)
I have to acquire him before I can get used to him Freda, but this time I think I'll take the advice so many people have given me and get one who is permanently plugged in. Hopefully then he might be longer lived.
