In this instance, I'm using a Windows 10 laptop and Logitech mouse M235. Let's see the steps to do this task.
First, grab the wireless mouse you want if you haven't already.
Now, open the tray in the back of the mouse.
Pull the USB Receiver from the mouse. Insert the battery (or batteries) if the mouse is not already come with it (I got the mouse with the battery). Close the tray.
You can notice a switch in the back of the mouse. Slide it to the right side to turn it on if not already (I got the mouse turned on).
Insert the USB Receiver into the USB port of your laptop.
Windows 10 will begin setting up the USB Receiver.
You will get notified once the process is complete.
That's all. Your wireless mouse is successfully connected to your laptop.

Enable or Disable ClickLock in Windows 10
Usually, you hold down the mouse button while highlighting or dragging items.
If you don't want to hold down the mouse button during these tasks, you need to enable the "ClickLock" feature.
"ClickLock" lets you highlight or drag items without holding down the mouse button. Without any delay, let's see the steps to enable it.

Go to the location where the items you want to highlight or drag are.

Note that you can also use the above steps to highlight text.
To Drag: Hold down the mouse button for few seconds (OR for the duration you set) on the highlighted items. Now, release the hold, and then drag the items. Click the mouse button on the location you want, and it will drop the items there.
