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...
<p>Thanks a lot! my mouse wheel was jittery. I identified the problem to be the teeth (notches) which would make the mouse wheel automatically move to a direction (so that a metal bump would fit in between those teeth). However, I could not figure out how to make that metal piece (which had the bump) go flat. quick searches landed me here and after I saw that image where you used the knife..... boom! no jitters anymore!!!</p>
<p>I actually didn't have an Instructables account before this, here's the story:</p><p>1. I went to a store and tried out all the gaming mice</p><p>2. Loved them because they were freespin and not ratchet</p><p>3. Wanted to get a gaming freespin mouse, but it was too expensive.</p><p>4. Followed this tutorial for free! :) Thank you so much! I am enjoying it thoroughly!</p>
<p>Thank you for the tips! I just bought a Genius mouse whose wheel was unbearably hard to turn, that's why I searched and I found this page. I disabled the spring almost fully, and it works now perfectly!</p>
<p>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</p>
