With its fantastic touch screen you might not see the point in using a USB mouse with your Nexus 7 tablet, but from time to time there might be certain tasks that are a little bit easier to perform with a mouse.

The good news is that getting a mouse up and running on your tablet is incredibly easy. There are two simple steps to follow:
- Get hold of an OTG USB cable, this will allow you to plug in your mouse (and a range of other USB connected things!)
- Plug it in!
And that’s it, start moving the mouse and the cursor will appear. You can click, drag and even use the mouse wheel – clever stuff.
