Summary: HP really should update the driver/software/firmware to make the mouse more compatible with Windows 8/8.1. As it is the only downside is the Back button doesn't work. The plus is that it works MUCH better than any of the Bluetooth mice/devices I've used. It has a more reliable connection than with Bluetooth. I bought this to free up a USB port on my laptop. Quality build, as good or better than any other Microsoft or Logitech mouse I've owned.
Summary: I can't say if this is the best way to do it, but it worked for me. Here's how: The issue I think has to do with the fact that in Windows 8 and 8.1 the ad hoc networking (softAP) has been discontinued. When you install the Software and drivers (downloaded from HP website, version 2.3 I believe), it will create two folders with the actual installation files in your temp directory (C:\Users\yourusernamehere\AppData\Local\Temp), one for the 32bit application and one for the...
Summary: I recently, finally, upgraded to Windows 7 ~ I like the format better than I thought would because of all of the WiFi applications ~ my computer is a laptop. We travel south in winter, and travel north for the summer; so convenient to have everything WiFi ~ don't miss the cords. Even though there were some negative reviews for the HP WiFi Mouse, I haven't had any problems with it, and very happy with it.
Summary: This is one of the better mice from HP. This mouse is great for gaming and everyday use. The only thing I didn't like was the feel. It has a very smooth feel, when I like more rubbery feels to the side. This makes me feel as if I have a strong grip on the mouse. Besides that, it works great and looks great.
Summary: HP wireless mouse works. I have a compatible hp laptop but the mouse disconnects often and have to go through a process in order to reconnect. More frustration than what I thought it would be. I would have been better off with a usb dongle mouse!
Summary: Like others, I bought this mouse because it didn't require a dongle. My computer does not have built in Bluetooth so a Bluetooth mouse was not an option. The mouse worked fine but when coming out of sleep mode, the mouse took FOREVER to reconnect. I went to the HP site and looked for updates to the driver and firmware. There was a firmware upgrade that addressed that specific problem - slow to connect out of sleep mode.
