How to connect Apple Magic Mouse to Windows (Pair Bluetooth Magic Mouse)

Normally, according to the compatibility sheet, Apple Magic Mouse can only be connected to Mac, MacBook si iPad. There is also the possibility to connect any generation of Magic Mouse la Windows. In this tutorial you will see step by step how do you connect Apple Magic Mouse on Windows 10 or Windows 11.

Before we show you how to connect a mouse Apple, Magic Mouse to a laptop or PC with Windows 10 or Windows 11, let's make some clarifications.

Magic Mouse / Magic Mouse 2 (and probably modelater versions, launched after 2023) are two modele of mouse produced by Apple, almost identical. The most significant difference between the two modele, it's like the old version works on batteries, and the new version is with non-resettable internal battery. Another difference is the green indicator LED, which is not present on the new one model Magic Mouse.

Although I have seen many users Windows excited about how this mouse looks, personally I would not recommend it Windows. Magic Mouse is designed by Apple especially for devices with operating system macOS (iMac Pro, MacBook, Mac) or iPadOS (all modelele of iPad), and many of its functions / capabilities are impossible to operate on Windows PC. The other way around is not a good idea either. Using a normal mouse on macOS, becomes an extreme sport for the user. It will be unable to perform many of the mouse functions on macOS.

However, if you received a gift Magic Mouse and you haven't bought one yet Mac (mouse can be a start :)), it can be connected and used on a PC with Windows 10 or Windows 11. Not being familiar with the operating system macOS you may not realize that on Windows you will not use it at half its capacity.

Another option, a bit faster to connect one Magic Mouse la Windows 10 / 11, is to use the shortcut Bluetooth from systray. Right click on the sign Bluetooth from systray and click Add a Bluetooth Device.

If you have used it before Magic Mouse on Mac, you will be a little disappointed. Except for the touch functions: scroll up and scroll down, on Windows 10 or Windows 11 you will not be able to use the functions of swipe, smart zoom and other touch functions.
