BT laser mouse in Win10

After upgrading to Windows 10, my BT laser mouse worked for a while and then quit.  When checked, Windows showed it connected/paired, but it was unresponsive.  I put in fresh batteries, did another pairing and again, it showed paired but still unresponsive.  I went to the Control Panel and did a driver update.  It reported back that my driver was the most recent.  Thinking the laser failed, I was about to trash it when I came across a Microsoft article saying that in such cases, remove the device and re-install through Settings.  I did so, and Voila! it worked again!

There is a Windows 10 driver at https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd005570  After downloading and installing go to Windows 10 settings and choose BT devices, and click on mouse, etc. A page will open asking you for a PIN number to connect.  Use 0000 and it will connect.  If you lose connection after using it for a while, go back to Settings, remove the device and then Add a device, etc. etc.  Why it takes more than one setup is unknown.  BTW: download the User's Guide while you are at the above site.

It sounds like I had the same problem here - the bluetooth mouse would work for a few seconds, and then drop out.  I downloaded the mouse suite, and so far, so good.  I didn't need to set the PIN mentioned (unless that's something that comes up later).  But, everything looks good.  Thank you.

Re: BT laser mouse in Win10

Well, it seems like there is always another twist to the routine.  My BT Laser Mouse would not respond at all today.  After struggling with removing and re-adding the BT Laser Mouse in Win 10 Settings, entering the PIN code, etc. to  no avail, I tried recycling the radio on/off.  This is not as easy as it sounds.  My Fn+F5 keys had no effect (could be because I am running Windows 10), so I had to go to the source: Windows Key + r, then type in C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\HOTKEY\OSD\F5 and double click on the file TpFnF5.  Cycle the OSD the radio button for the BT Mouse.  Once more back to Windows Settings and remove/add BT Laser Mouse and VOILA!!  I am back in business.
