Using the mouse, the user interacts with various objects on the monitor screen: moves, selects, deletes and changes files and folders. The mouse is ready for use as soon as the operating system boots. The operation of this type of device can be adjusted using the settings.

How to block the mouse


Step 1

If you need to disable the mouse, a lot will depend on the model of the mouse itself. In the event that you use a regular mouse connected to the computer via a cable (wired mouse), physically disconnect it from the system unit. If a wireless mouse is connected to the computer, check the device cover. There is a switch that allows you to turn the mouse on and off. Move the toggle switch to the Off position.

Step 2

There is another method that is suitable for turning on and off all devices on the computer, not just the mouse. Call the "System" component. To do this, right-click on the "My Computer" item on the "Desktop". Select Properties from the context menu. The required window will open.

Step 3

You can call it in another way: in the "Start" menu, right-click on the "My Computer" item in the main menu and select the "Properties" command from the drop-down menu. Or open the "Control Panel" and in the "Performance and Maintenance" category, left-click on the "System" icon.

Step 4

In the dialog box that opens, go to the "Hardware" tab. Click on the "Device Manager" button in the group of the same name. This action will bring up an additional dialog box. Find the "Mice and other pointing devices" branch in the list of devices.

Step 5

Expand the branch by clicking on the [+] icon to the left of the line, or by double-clicking. Select the name of your mouse in the expanded tree and right-click on it. In the context menu, select the Disable command.

Step 6

Alternatively, open the device properties window by double-clicking on the line with its name. In the Properties window, go to the General tab and set the Device Application group to This device is not in use (disabled). Click OK to apply the new settings.

Step 7

If the branch "Mice and other pointing devices" displays several devices with identical names, repeat the described steps for each of the devices. The mouse will be locked. Then use the keys on the keyboard to perform the action.
