Picture of Make your mouse scroll wheel move like butter
Hate that stiff, clicky wheel on your mouse? Give your mouse wheel a super slick, butter smooth spinning action in 10 minutes.

Since every mouse is different, this hack is mainly about the idea. If you can operate a tiny screwdriver, you should be able to do this whichever way your mouse is put together.

1 computer mouse
1 #00 Phillips head screwdriver (small)
1 X-Acto or utility knife

I am going to do this with both a Logitech USB Mouse and an HP Wireless Elite Desktop Mouse.

Step 1: Find how to open it

Most mice use a combination of click-together and screw attachments.  To find any screws, look for screws under pads, stickers, and behind the batteries.  

Under pads: using an exacto top, carefully pry these up and keep in a safe place to reattach later.
Behind stickers: rub your philips head screwdriver over the sticker looking for indentations.  These indentations may be a sign of a hidden screw.

The logitech was simple: one screw and the whole thing came apart.  The HP will take some tricky moves...

Step 2: Pry open the case

Find a seam that looks like where it separates the important parts and pry it open carefully.  I prefer a stiff plastic hotel keycard as it does less damage to the soft plastic.  

Be very gentle, you don't want to break off any of the plastic tabs in the process.

So now that both cases are open, we can look inside.

I just want to thank you. Cuz it worked. However if you disassemble before scrolling down to where it says View All Steps then you're stuck lol
