Do I need mouse drivers?

Updated: 01/24/2018 by Computer Hope


Computer MouseToday's operating systems no longer require drivers for standard mouse interoperability. If your computer has a standard one or two button mouse and you are using a current version of your operating system, you do not need to install any special drivers to use your mouse.


Although drivers are not necessary, if you have a mouse with additional features (e.g., extra buttons or trackball), you need to download the software for that mouse to access all of its features.
