If you have problems using the Microsoft Mouse with Chronologic's Instant Recall version 1.1, try loading the Mouse driver with the /Y switch.

This information applies to Microsoft Mouse driver versions 7.04 and later.


Instant Recall is a memory-resident information manager that comes with mouse support. The mouse cursor appears as a dot in Instant Recall, even though the program is a text-based application. The Microsoft Mouse driver command line switch /Y disables hardware cursor support provided by some video graphics adapter cards, which may cause conflicts. Using the /Y mouse driver command line switch does not change the shape of the mouse cursor in Instant Recall, but does eliminate a conflict if there is one occurring.

NOTE: The Microsoft Mouse driver command line switch /Y was introduced with Mouse driver version 7.04. If you have an earlier version of the Microsoft Mouse driver, contact Microsoft End User Sales at (800) 426-9400 to obtain an update.
