I have a wireless mouse from iHome and also a corded m100 from logitech both are awesome.

I'm still working on this issue. Had to work between some neighborhood power failure issues. I tried things again, after the latest update, but still having problems.

I have 6 or 7 wireless mice and another bunch of wired mice. Only one of the wireless mice seems to work properly. All of the wired mice work well.

Where I seem to notice it the most is when I am trying to move a window on the screen. When things are working right, I just "right click and hold" in the top of the window and move it where I want. But with the mice that are giving me problems, when I go to "right click and hold", the windows blows up to full screen. Sometimes it blows up to full screen and back down quickly. It seems like the window is seeing a double click. It's incredibly annoying to have windows bouncing up and down.

I see this same double click action when I am trying to open a new browser tab. A new tab opens but if the cursor happens to be on top of an adjacent tab, the adjacent tab get blown away.

I would normally attribute that to a dirty/bad switch in the mouse. But not every wireless mouse.

I'm still looking into it.

Just as a wild thought, you do not have an external harddrive connected up near the mouse USB receiver by any chance.
I had similiar issues but once I removed the ext harddrive away and out of sight things went back to normal.

Nope. Nothing external except for the mouse dongle. I have tried using a USB hub, to get the dongle away from the laptop, but no change. It's just odd that, only wireless mice, except for one, have this issue.

I had a similar issue with my old LOGITECH mouse---I moved the receiver from the rear of the desktop (USB 2) to a USB 3 port on the front of the box---Problem solved.

    The case fan and CPU cooler were after purchase upgrades...the i7 cpu runs hot and the OE solution can best be described as marginal when CPU intensive apps are used.
    ALSO added a VRM heatsink.

Thanks, but I don't use a desktop. I use a laptop. I don't like being stuck in one place.

The laptop has two USB ports. And, Yes, I have tried both ports and even tried at USB hub to get the dongle away from the computer. No change. The only wireless mouse that I can get to work correctly is a old Logitech Invisible Optic Cordless Mouse & Logitech Receiver: C-BL4-MSE. While it works, it a bit clunky and the scroll wheel is sluggish.

I'm suspecting some radio frequency interference. Is your laptop close to your router or a cordless phone? They often use a nearby frequency to cordless mice and they can interfere with each other. My old wireless mouse used to make my cordless phone chirp now and then when the phone was on my desk. I have switched to a corded mouse, but I did have numerous mouse problems when 2.4 GHz devices were close to the computer. Just as a test, what happens with these rogue mice if you turn off the wireless network adapter in your laptop?

Thanks for the response. I have been an Amateur Radio operator for almost 60 years, so I'm pretty familiar with RFI.

I mostly work on my laptop in my radio room. My computer desk is on the East wall. Sometimes I have a cell phone in there, sometimes not. I don't have a cordless phone. That's never changed anything. My radios are on the North wall, but I don't transmit when I am working on my laptop and the radios are off. On the South wall I have a work bench. The router and Wi-Fi boxes (Spectrum) are on a shelf on that bench. That puts them at about 10-15 feet from my computer desk.

But that isn't the only place I work on my laptop. In the morning I move to the kitchen (batteries) and in the afternoon, is sit in the living room (batteries and BarcaLounger). When I'm in the kitchen, the router and Wi-Fi boxes are completely on the other side of the house. In the living room is an older laptop running Windows 10. That laptop doesn't have a problem with the mice. I can't find any correlation to the router and Wi-Fi boxes.

Just last week, the power went off about 3:00 AM. I was up with the dogs anyway, so I did some local work on my laptop. With nothing else powered up, it was a perfect time to try the mice again. No change.

But, thanks for the suggestions.
