plugging mouse into docking station

HP 2013 Ultra Slim Docking Station

Man it is so hard to ask a simple question from customer support so I'll ask you all. I just want to know which "port" do I plug my simple old mouse into on my docking station? I'm teleworking and have no clue. At my office our tech team set everything up.  I bought a docking station for home and I'm lost! Help please

I don't know your definition of standard mouse - I am guessing you are referring to a mouse that uses a tiny USB receiver.


Using this dock does not appear to block the regular ports on the computer - you can use the ports on the computer as you have done in the past. 


If you need help with the computer (for example, to understand available ports), Open Support Home, Open Category Manuals > Find and Open the User Guide


Docking Station Help

Oddly, the first part of the first page in this user setup guide is upside down.

The rest of the document is right-way reading and can help you decide where to plug in your mouse receiver.

For example, use one of the three USB SS ports for the receiver.
