    I usually just plug it in and wait for a second.

    Should be plug and play. I've not had a problem adding one and it recognizes every time I plug the dongle in.

    Go to your Device Manger and make sure the device drivers are correct.

    Is your TouchPad active? I don't know if you have one as you do not say what device is experiencing the issue.

    A few more details might help like type of device running 10 and any other HIDs that might be causing conflict.

    have you ever used it before? If not and this is your first time, it could also be a defective unit or a counterfeit one
