How we connect Apple Magic Mouse / Magic Mouse 2 on Windows 10 (Bluetooth Magic Mouse Pair)

Before we show you how to connect a mouse Apple, "Magic Mouse" on a laptop or PC with Windows 10, let's make some clarifications.
Magic Mouse si Magic Mouse 2 are two mouse models produced by Apple, almost identical. Most significant difference between the two models is like the old version works on batteries, and the new version is with non-resettable internal battery. Another difference is the green LED indicator, which on the new model.
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 macOS operating system (iMac Pro, MacBook, Mac, etc. Mac-Mac), and many of its functions / capabilities are impossible to operate on Windows PC. It's 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.
If, however, you received a Magic Mouse gift and you haven't bought a Mac yet (the mouse may be a beginner :)), it can be connected and used on a PC with Windows 10. Without being familiar with the macOS operating system it is very possible that you will not realize that Windows you will not use it at half its capacity.

How to connect a Magic Mouse / Magic Mouse 2 to a PC / laptop with Windows 10

1. First of all we need to have a laptop or a PC with Bluetooth support, and it is activated.
2. Open the Magic Mouse mouse on the bottom button.
3. We're going Windows DO NOT:Windows Settings"→"Devices (Bluetooth, printers, mouse)"→"Bluetooth and other devices"And we activate"Bluetooth". On.

4. In the "Add a device"We select the first option. Bluetooth.

5. In the list of bluetooth devices you will find the Magic mouse. In our case, this is called "Stealth's Mouse". The name was set on your MacBook.

6. Double-click the mouse name to connect it to Windows 10. Under his name will appear status: Connected.

Another option, something faster to connect a Magic Mouse to Windows 10, is to use the Bluetooth shortcut in the systray. Right-click on the Bluetooth sign in the systray and click "Add a Bluetooth Device".

If you've ever used Magic Mouse on your Mac, you'll be a little disappointed. Except for the touch functions: scroll up and scroll down, on Windows 10 will not be able to use swipe, smart zoom and other touch functions.
