What does resolution or sensitivity mean when applied to mouse settings?
Resolution is a term that refers to a computer’s screen or display, indicating the number of pixels on the horizontal axis and the vertical axis. The higher the resolution, the more detail is displayed.
For a mouse, resolution indicates the number of dots on the screen that the cursor moves for every inch that you move the mouse. For this reason, mouse resolution is typically listed as dots per inch (dpi).
The resolution setting controls the number of signals sent to the controller chip for every inch the mouse is moved. At higher resolution, more signals are sent. This results in better control of the cursor and a smoother motion. The higher the dpi setting, the more control you have over the cursor movement.
When using some applications, such as illustrating software or certain games, you may want more control. For these programs, use a higher resolution setting. Other programs, such as word processing software or a Web browser, may be easier to use with a lower resolution setting.
To adjust the resolution, hold the main left, right, and Facebook mouse buttons down simultaneously for three seconds. The resolution will change from the default value to the next highest resolution. Hold these three mouse buttons again, and the resolution will change to the next available resolution value. Each time the buttons are held for three seconds, the resolution will change to the next available setting.
The available resolutions are: 400 DPI, 800 DPI, 1200 DPI (default), and 1600 DPI. When the resolution changes, the LED will blink as follows:
- 400 DPI: one blink
- 800 DPI: two blinks
- 1200 DPI: three blinks
- 1600 DPI: four blinks

Uploading to Facebook
Your HP mouse includes software that lets you easily upload pictures to your Facebook account.
By default, the Facebook upload feature is associated with the mouse button that is located in the upper-left portion of your mouse, just to the left of the left-click button.
Uploading Pictures to Facebook
Before you can begin uploading pictures to your Facebook account, you must configure settings so that the software can access your Facebook account. During the software installation process, you were asked for your Facebook user name and password. If you provided this login information, you are ready to begin uploading pictures to Facebook. If you skipped this step of the installation process, you can access the settings by right-clicking the taskbar icon and then selecting Settings .
The Facebook upload software lets you upload any image that is currently displayed on your computer monitor. You can upload photos, portions of text, or any other on-screen image.
When you are ready to begin uploading pictures, position the mouse pointer on one corner of the on-screen image that you want to upload. Click and hold the Facebook button on your mouse, and then drag the mouse pointer to the opposite corner of the image. During this process, you are drawing a box around the image that you want to upload.
When you release the mouse button, the area inside the box that you drew is captured (saved), and a preview window shows you the image that you captured. If you want to upload that image to Facebook, it's as easy as selecting the check box next to the image in the preview window, selecting the name of the Facebook album where you want the image to go, and then clicking the Upload button.
If you want to select a different Facebook album, click the drop-down arrow to display a list of the albums that are currently associated with your Facebook account. You can then select any album in the list.
If you want to upload multiple pictures at the same time, close the preview window, and then select more images by drawing a box around each on-screen image. When you are done, you can select multiple images in the preview window, and the software uploads all the pictures that you selected.
Configuring Your Facebook Software Settings
You can access the Facebook upload software settings by right-clicking the taskbar icon and then selecting Settings .
A window opens, where you can configure all the settings associated with the Facebook upload software.
The Facebook credentials section lets you change your Facebook user name and password. This feature is useful if you need to change your Facebook settings after you install your mouse software, if you accidentally typed the wrong Facebook login information during the software installation process, or if you want to use a different Facebook account. To change your Facebook login information, type your Facebook user name (typically, your e-mail address) and your Facebook password, and then click the Save button.
The Create new Facebook album section lets you create a new Facebook album. To access this feature, you must first provide your Facebook user name and password, and then click the Login button. The Albums Created field displays a list of your existing Facebook albums. You can then type a new album name and album description, and then click the Create button.
The Image path/name section lets advanced users configure the location where the temporary files (created by the software) are stored on your computer. To change the default location of the temporary files, click the Browse button, and then select a new hard disk drive or path where you want to store the files. The temporary files have a prefix appended to the file name, and you can use the File prefix name field to change this prefix.
The General Settings section contains two check boxes:
- Discard images after upload: If you select this check box, the temporary image files are automatically deleted from your computer after you successfully upload pictures to Facebook. If you clear this check box, temporary image files are kept, so that you can access the images again later.
- Show preview window after each capture: If you select this check box, a preview window opens each time that you release the Facebook button on your mouse after drawing a box around an image. If you typically capture multiple images, you may want to clear this check box. If you clear the check box, the preview window does not open after each image is captured, so you can more easily select multiple images. When you are done and are ready to upload pictures, you can right-click the taskbar icon and then select Upload photos .
Mouse Sensor Technology
The HP mouse uses either optical or laser sensor technology.
An optical mouse uses an LED light to track movement.
A laser mouse is typically much more sensitive than an optical mouse. Also, a laser mouse works on surfaces on which an optical mouse performs poorly, such as black or shiny surfaces.
|During the software installation process, I am receiving an error message that my operating system is not supported.||Your PC must be running the Windows 7 operating system in order to communicate with the HP
Wi-Fi Mouse. |
Additionally, your PC's Wi-Fi adapter must be Windows 7 certified.
|My mouse is not detected by the pairing wizard.||Before pairing your mouse to your PC, make sure that your PC's Wi-Fi is turned on. Many notebook computers have a switch or button that turns the Wi-Fi function off/on.|
|I am having problems pairing the HP Wi-Fi Mouse with my PC, or the mouse behaves erratically after it is paired.||Since your PC communicates with the mouse using wireless communication, please use Windows Update or check your Wi-Fi manufacturer’s website to make sure that you have the latest drivers for your PC’s wireless network adapter.|
|During the pairing process, the wizard displays more than one mouse. How do I know which one to select?||You can identify your specific mouse from the "Mouse ID" which is found on the bottom of your mouse.|
|My mouse is turned off, but it is still detected by the pairing wizard.||The PC system keeps a cache of previously discovered mice. This cache does expire, but it can take up to 5 minutes depending upon your PC's wireless adapter.|
|When I turn my mouse off and back on again, it takes my PC a long time to redetect the mouse.||When the mouse is turned off and then turned back on, the PC has to go through the mouse disconnection process followed by the mouse connection process. It can take between 5 and 10 seconds to complete both of these processes.|
|The mouse pointer is not moving. What should I do?||Ensure that all setup procedures have been followed correctly. If the software has already been
installed, uninstall it, reboot your computer, and then re-install.|
Clean the mouse lens with a cotton swab. Do not use any other materials or solvents to clean the mouse lens as this may result in damage to the lens.
Because this is an optical device, it is important to use it on an appropriate surface. If the surface you are using your mouse on is highly reflective, the surface may be the source of the problem. Use a mouse pad or change to a more neutral-colored surface.
|The mouse pointer is moving abnormally. What should I do?||This can be caused by debris around or on the lens that is interfering with the optical signal. Clean the mouse lens with a cotton swab. Do not use any other materials or solvents to clean the mouse lens as this may result in damage to the lens.|
