    Hello,

    Not sure what happened but I'm unable to remove my Bluetooth mouse adapter from the USB port of my Surface 3. Any suggestions????

    Welcome to the forum

    I've had that problem in the past on laptops using those really sort dongles. All I can say is try try again. I had to take a pair of pliers to one as I couldn't get a good grip but make sure you pull straight out or you may damage the port.

    Moving this out of FAQs and Guides as it's neither.

    Yes, or very small steps per side! Just parts if a millimeter on one side and parts of a millimeter on the other side. You should be good!

    But euh.... why use a bluetooth adapter anyway?

    It probably not a a bluetooth. Typically if it's specific for the mouse and not a universal Bluetooth adapter it called a USB receiver that won't have to be paired like bluetooth. The advantage of a Bluetooth mouse is it doesn't need a USB port and it free it up if your PC has bluetooth build in.

    Yeah, that type of mouse is usually reserved for desktops that don't have built in BT.
