A mouse is a type of pointing device used with a windowing system. As you move it around with your hand, it changes the position of a cursor on your display.
Mice come with one, two or three pushbuttons. The buttons on a three-button mouse are referred to as the left, middle, and right buttons.
See also: `click', `drag', and `pointing device'.
