In some cases when you are using a laptop, especially playing games or performing difficult tasks, the trackpad will not be able to handle it all. Or in case you need more flexibility and space than a wired mouse when using a desktop computer.

The best option you have in these situations is to connect your mouse wirelessly to your computer.

Fortunately connecting a wireless mouse to a Mac or Windows computer is easy thanks to Bluetooth technology.

That’s why both Mac and PC users rarely want to use the trackpad regularly and always carry a wireless mouse with them.
