ok what button if i dont have a bluetooth button
Hi, I have had intermittent issues with my Arc mouse and Surface Pro X dropping connection to each other. I looked in the Bluetooth Control Panel, and the Arc mouse was listed twice. I have removed both, and since rebooted the computer. Pressing the pairing button does not seem to want to make the light flash on the mouse, and when I click add device under bluetooth, the mouse is not coming up on the list of available devices, however the light on the mouse starts to flash. I have taken the batteries out of the mouse, and put them back in and retried on several occasions. Any suggestions, as I just bought this stuff less than a month ago, and it was working. Thanks
