ABOUT MX ANYWHERE 2

Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless mobile mouse is a lightweight wireless mouse that sets new standards for performance and precision in a mouse you can take with you.

Connect with up to three devices using Logitech’s tiniest receiver—the Pico Unifying™ receiver—or Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology; then switch between your Mac, PC, or Microsoft Surface with the touch of a button.

Use the scroll wheel to navigate in click-to-click mode or in a hyperfast mode that’s perfect for long documents or web pages. Convenient back and forward buttons give you even greater control.

The compact MX Anywhere 2 is the ideal combination of comfort and portability—at home, at work, and on the go. Darkfield™ Laser Tracking gives you flawless control on virtually any surface, including glass (4 mm minimum thickness) and other high-gloss materials.

Unlock all the possibilities MX Anywhere 2 offers by installing Logitech Options™ software. In addition to optimizing the mouse for your operating system, the software lets you customize MX Anywhere 2 buttons and actions to fit your needs.

Installation of Logitech Options transforms the middle button into a gesture button you can use to trigger gestures that simplify desktop and application management, media control, document viewing, and personalization of common tasks.

Perform a gesture

Hold down the middle button while moving the mouse left, right, up, or down.

The figure below shows gesture sets available for managing windows in Windows (7, 8, or later) and Mac OS X (10.8 or later).

Tip: Use Logitech Options to view available gesture sets and assign gestures to the middle button or to other mouse controls.

Power Management

Check battery level

The LED on top of the mouse turns red to indicate that battery power is low and it’s time to change batteries.

After glowing green for 5 seconds when the mouse is powered on or waking from sleep, the LED indicates battery status.

LED color Means
Green 20–100% charge
Red Less than 20% charge;
recharge now!

Tip: Install Logitech Options to set up and receive battery status notifications.

 

Recharge MX Anywhere 2

Connect one end of the provided charging cable to the Micro-USB port on the mouse and the other end to a USB power source.

The LED blinks slowly until fully charged, when it is lit steadily. (The LED shuts off when you remove the cable.)

One minute of charging gives you enough power for two hours of use. Depending on how you use the mouse, a full charge can last up to 40 days.*

* Based on six hours of daily use. Battery life may vary depending on user and operating condition.


 
Tracks virtually anywhere
 

The Darkfield™ laser sensor tracks flawlessly on virtually any surface, including glass* and other high-gloss materials.
