The mouse is a computer peripheral that has been around since the late 1970s. It was initially developed by Douglas Engelbart, who wanted to make it easier for people to use computers. However, it wasn’t until 1980, when Apple released its first commercial mouse, that it became mainstream. Since then, mouse have become an essential part of computing and evolved with technological advancements.

The Different Types of Connectors on the Back of a Computer
The back of a PC usually has several types of ports and connectors. Some are basics, like the monitor port, and some are for more specific hardware, like a serial port. Here’s a look at the different types of ports and connectors you might find on the back of your computer.
Monitor port: Also known as a DisplayPort, this is where you connect your monitor.
DVI port: Stands for “Digital Visual Interface.” This is another type of video connector. You might use this if your monitor doesn’t have a DisplayPort.
HDMI port: This high-definition multimedia interface lets you connect to HDTVs and other AV equipment.
USB ports: There are usually several USB ports on the back of a PC. You can use them to connect devices like printers, scanners, and digital cameras.
FireWire port: Sometimes called an IEEE 1394 port, this lets you connect high-speed devices like digital video cameras.
Ethernet port: This is where you connect a cable for wired Internet access.
Audio input/output jacks are for connecting speakers, microphones, and headphones.
The Advantages of Using a Mouse Connector
There are several advantages to using a mouse connector. First, it frees up one of the USB ports on the back of the computer. Second, it allows using an older-style mouse that does not have a USB connection. Lastly, some people find that a wired mouse feels more responsive than a wireless one.
The Disadvantages of Using a Mouse Connector
The disadvantages of using a mouse connector port include the following:
-It is not as widely compatible as other ports such as USB.
-It is not as fast as other ports such as USB.
-It uses more power than other ports such as USB.
The Different Ways to Connect a Mouse to a Computer
Most modern PCs come with a couple of different ports you can use to connect a mouse, and each type has its advantages and disadvantages. This will cover the three most common types of ports to decide which is right for you.
USB: USB is the most common port for connecting a mouse to a computer. It’s also one of the easiest for us since you have to plug the USB cable into the port, and you’re good to go. One downside of USB is that it can sometimes be selective about which devices it will work with; if you’re having trouble getting your mouse to work with your computer, it might be because it’s incompatible with the USB standard.
PS/2: PS/2 ports are the older ports that connect mouse (and other input devices) to computers. They look similar to USB ports but are usually a different color and are not as widely used anymore. One advantage of PS/2 ports is that they tend to be more compatible with a broader range of devices than USB ports; if you’re having trouble getting your USB mouse to work with your computer, try plugging it into a PS/2 port instead.
Serial: Serial ports are even older than PS/2 ports and are not used nearly as often anymore. If your mouse has a serial port, you’ll need an adapter to use it with most modern computers. One advantage of serial mice is that they often have very high polling rates, making them more responsive than mice that use other ports.
