You don't reset the mouse. You need to go into the Bluetooth preferences and delete the profile for the mouse when you initially paired it with your Mac.

My Apple mouse was connected to an old MacBook Pro and was never removed. I recently had trouble connecting it to my new MacBook Pro. This worked for me:

1) turn off your Apple mouse
2) open system preferences [cmd+spc, "system preferences", enter].
3) navigate to "Bluetooth", make sure Bluetooth is on.
4) hold down 'click' action on Apple mouse then turn on the mouse. Make sure you hold down the 'click' while it turns on.
5) You should now be able to `pair` your Apple mouse to your Mac.

Fantastic tip Jason, thanks so much - this worked for me, having tried every other method with no success.

Thank you!. This is the best solution for any time and especially when the old computer the mouse was associate with is no longer being used.

This is a copy/paste from another forum - it worked for me!


Lets try to fix the BT
Hold Shift + Option and click on BT in the menu bar.
Then select Debug.



Then do the obvious.

[doublepost=1547665138][/doublepost]Is it obvious to reset the BT module? Or the "connected Apple devices"? I'm guessing you mean the latter, but I'd like to be sure. (Neither worked for me.)

The magic mouse doesn't have a "click" command, it has a "left click" and a "right click". Which one does one press? Or do you just mash down the entire cover generally and hope for the best?
