Which mouse can I get for my Chromebook?

Your Chromebook includes a touchpad, and the newer Lenovo staff Chromebooks have a touchscreen. But if you would also like to use a mouse with your Chromebook:

  • Just about any mouse should work fine.
  • A wired mouse is simplest and most reliable.
  • For wireless mice, a Bluetooth mouse is recommended as they seem to be less draining on your Chromebook’s battery life than a cordless mouse with a radio dongle.
  • However, Bluetooth mice do have to be paired with your Chromebook, and the connection can falter. So if you want fewer hassles, you could use a basic wireless mouse with dongle.
  • Technology Services does NOT provide mice for Chromebooks, but the first three belts of the Kung Fu Canvas program for Canvas LMS training are now open to teachers in grades 6-8, and teachers in grades 6-12 who complete the first three belts in Kung Fu Canvas earn a Bluetooth mouse.
