Mighty Mouse’s scroll ball
July 28, 2009
Mighty Mouses have a single debilitating flaw. Over time, that little tiny scroll ball, (reminicent of the ball that used to be underneath the mouse) stops working. I don’t know about you, but I might as well pack it up when this happens, because I am not effective without my scroll ball!
It turns out that there’s an easy fix for this, which I just sought out after being crippled with a mouse that wouldn’t scroll down. Here’s what you do:
- Lay a piece of paper on a desk
- Flip your Mighty Mouse upside down
- Press the little ball down firmly on the piece of paper and roll the ball around
- Do this a couple of times, flipping rightside up every so often to blow of the gunk that comes out
It’s that easy!
