The first step toward integrating the elegance and precision of an Apple Magic Mouse with your Windows 10 PC is to establish a connection – a bridge between two worlds of technology. This seemingly simple task of connecting via Bluetooth is the cornerstone of your enhanced navigation experience.

Turning on Bluetooth is just the beginning; initiating the pairing process with a flourish of clicks leads you to select the Magic Mouse from a list of available devices. Should a PIN be requested, fear not, for ‘0000’ or simply a void may be the key to unlocking the connection.

With no additional software needed, the mouse is now at one with your PC, ready to obey its master’s gestures.

  1. Begin by banishing the Magic Mouse from the Bluetooth devices list to avoid any conflicts.
  2. Then, beckon the driver file to run and watch as the installation wizard conjures the necessary magic.
  3. Upon completion, reconnect your mouse to the Bluetooth settings and let it be reborn with newfound powers.
  4. A system restart might be the final step in ensuring a seamless integration.
