How to Set Up a Bluetooth Device
Many wireless mice come with their own receivers (and often their own technology), but not all of them do. If you find that your new Bluetooth mouse doesn't have an included receiver -- or if your current receiver is now broken -- setting up a new one is a piece of cake. These simple instructions will walk you through the process.

Although these instructions use a mouse as the device to be set up, this process will also work with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. In this case, we used the Eclipse Touch Mouse as the demonstration device.

To begin, insert the Bluetooth receiver into a USB port. If your device doesn't come with a Bluetooth receiver, you can pick one up from most electronics retailers.
