Finding Wireless Mouse Drivers on Microsoft's Website
Finding drivers on Microsoft.com is no different than finding Windows hardware drivers on other websites except that microsoft.com can be a very big place with lots of pages. In order to keep up with all of the information posted and removed on a daily basis from the Microsoft website, the company uses a wide array of page names including dynamically generated URLs that sometimes change after publication. For this reason, linking to Microsoft mouse drivers for Windows 7 or any other accessories, for that matter, is a game of chance. Therefore, it is usually best to start by searching the Microsoft website directly, and if that fails, move on to clicking though the variety of microsoft.com navigation.
Also, although Microsoft's website does work with any web browser, it does seem to work best with Internet Explorer. You are less likely to hit a dead-end due to a missing plugin or a requirement to download new software if you use IE 8 to browse Microsoft.com. Don't worry, you can go back to Firefox or Chrome after you download your drivers.
As of the writing of this article, you can skip the steps for finding the drivers below and use this link. However, as noted above, the URI is subject to change at anytime by Microsoft.
On the Download Mouse and Keyboard Software screen, select Mouse for the Type of product, the specific model such as Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 as the product, and then the operating system and language. The supported OS types and languages are all included. If you are looking for a different operating system or language, then it is not supported. There is no "other place" for you to look. Also, be sure to watch out for similarly named products. For example, there is both a Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 and a Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 3000. Read all the choices, don't just pick the first one that is close.
