    What does the HID in HID-compliant mouse stand for? I had a Logitech Mouse
    that went bad so replaced it with an HP USB 3-button optical one. My MS XP
    Home Edition desktop lists the new mouse as an HID etc. mouse. Manufacturer
    Microsoft. Any suggestions, anyone?

    HID = human interface device

    Search for HID to get more info. Wikipedia has an interesting article.

    Does it work ok? If not you could install Intellipoint from Microsoft if
    yo want.

    Thanks, Jim. Don't know why I didn't have brains enough to Google it first.
    Yes, that was very interesting.
