How do you get the battery door open (without breaking it) on the HP Wireless mouse x3000?

You should be able to use a fingernail underneath the curved edge in the indentation to remove the cover.

LOL - minimal language diagrams. 
The slot in the cover provides flexibility. You actually need to get the fingernail between the right edge (as seen when looking at the mouse upside-down as shown in the images) of the cover and the mouse bottom (as pointed to in the illustartation by the arrow labeled 'here') and push left towards the slot (not indicated on the diagram). The right side of the cover flexes and disengages a tab and the cover pops up and out.

Would you mind telling me if there was an actual purpose for the post you made that asked the question?

Was it an excercise designed, out of boredom, to waste someone else's time?

That is certainly what it seems to be, given the tone of your response. We are here to help people, not play mind games.

Yes. It was specifically NOT to waste someone elses time.


Provost's answer was correct and he was kind enough to supply the diagram which came with the mouse. 
One without the other would not have gotten the little door open - and HP would have gotten the mouse returned (possibly with a broken door).


Regarding the text, 'Curved edge' was confusing and 'Indentation' does not exist on my version of the mouse.  As for the diagram, what/when the 'here' label and arrow apply was unclear. Taken together and figuring out to push sideways - not pry up - was the key.


I simply re-stated what I finaly figured out in what I hoped would be more easily understood by others who find themselves with a frustrating purchase.

 

Unless product design is reading this post I'm not sure we are helping anyone at this point.

 

Thanks.

OK. That works for me.

 

Sorry, The chatroom  term LOL always has a tendancy to spool  me up a bit.  😉
