I once had something similar (not a W10 update). The mouse was cordless and the dongle was in an additional USB port rather than the main one. It turned out the additional port was not recognised at the start and moving it to the 'main' port instead resolved the problem.

No, the thing Jim is seeing, has happened before. Many releases of Windows 10 have had the problem.
I've had different mice on the Test Machine and the serial (RS232) mouse always worked. Occasionally one or both USB mice would disappear.
This used to be traceable, to leaving your "allow Windows Update to mess up your drivers" tick box. If stuff like that is unticked, there's less trouble afoot.

But I don't have a particularly magical method of restoring mouse. Not a "surgical" method. The mouse is broken, and not everyone has an extra mouse to plug in and try and tip things upright.
Jim would not like the other methods I have in mind.

Summary: Multiple mice can be plugged into the computer. Each mouse can move the cursor for you. If you have multiple mice, you might well get lucky and have a working mouse again.

This is the update with all the improvements and plugs the millions of security leaks.
The last time MS did a major update on my machine it was unusable for around an hour with update processes working in the background.

You set your PC to remind you that updates are available and you choose to install them.
My Windows Update page says "Feature update to Win 10 release 2004, blah blah , click here to download and install"

Jim did W10 Install only recently, new media used, no crusty older disc. So "winver" dialog box should say 19041.

At the mains socket or on the PSU switch (if it has one), not just shutting it down?

WTF are you going on about now Crazy Jim?
Is it because I said you *could* be the first person I ever killfiled, before I concluded you were not worthy of such effort?
Initially, I thought you were just a wind-up, then I decided you were just stupid ... and you can't really blame stupid. ;-(

But it's the usual problem. How do you use a Troubleshooter, when all your HID devices are busted ?
