All of the Mouse support products are memory resident
executable .COM files that must be loaded prior to the
execution of the software they are designed to support. The
software has been compiled with the Microsoft Expert Menus
Compiler and requires the use of the Microsoft Mouse driver
version 6.1x or later. Other compatible mouse drivers and
mice may be used however there may be slight variations in
the operation of the software due to variations in the mouse
driver. Please refer to the notes regarding your particular

To use the mouse software you should create a batch
file following this format:

MenuName ON Example: PCPMOUSE ON
SoftwareName PCPLUS

If your mouse driver is correct and the mouse is
functional the menu software will respond with it's name and
the message "Installed". If there is an error in loading the
software will respond "Mouse Driver not found." The latter
of the two messages can indicated that your mouse driver is
not compatible with the Microsoft Mouse driver 6.1x and that
you should try and update your driver.


Once installed the menu software is transparent and
inactive until activated by movement of the mouse or the
click of a mouse button. Each piece of software has it's own
help screen which will explain details of it's operation. In
general the following conventions will apply to all mouse
menu products;

LEFT BUTTON - Activates On Screen Menus
RIGHT BUTTON - Selects from Menu or continues
operations selected.
BOTH BUTTONS - Cancels an operation.
MID BUTTON - Same as Both Buttons

The MSMOUSE.COM software is an exception to this
standard. This software is LEFT BUTTON oriented for menus
and selections. The RIGHT button is used to invoke the
online help system.

When in use the menu software may reassign the function
of the mouse for compatibility with the software. When this
occurs a message will be placed on the screen indicating the
functions that each button will perform. Cursor movement is
controlled by the mouse in all cases.

All software functions are controlled by the mouse when
the menu software is installed. Pressing the LEFT button
will always activate a menu that is appropriate to the
current function of the software you are using. Screen
colors are automatic and the menus appear to be part of the
software rather than an overlayed window to it.


TC-Mouse and TurboMouse both use a multi-menu system
that allows for control of both the environment and the
editor commands. Both of these products also contain a full
set of programmers macros that are designed for the language
they are used with. Selecting one of the macros will display
a Dialog box on the screen which will prompt you for some
variable information for the Macro that you have selected.
You may cancel a Dialog box, and the macro, by pressing the
ESCAPE key. Pressing the RETURN key or clicking the LEFT or
RIGHT mouse button will complete the action of the Dialog
box and the Macro.

LOGITECH mouse users will find that the Microsoft
versions may not function as they should. This is due to the
incompatibility of the Logitech mouse driver to the
Microsoft mouse driver. You will find that the versions
designated for the Logitech mouse will compensate for these
slight differences in the drivers. The Logitech versions
will prove to be incompatible and will function erratically
with the Microsoft mouse. For this reason they are
considered different products and must be registered

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
