Default Mouse used in DOS programs?

Wouldent you like to use your mouse in DOS. Well this is how

You have to load the DOS mouse driver to use the mouse in DOS. Type MOUSE at the command prompt to load the driver once or add it to AUTOEXEC.BAT to load it every time.
You can also use DOSSTART.BAT (saved in your Windows directory) instead of AUTOEXEC.BAT if you don't want these drivers loaded all the time.

Note: the following caveats do apply to this solution; certain limitations prevent environment variables to be used effectively, and DOSSTART.BAT isn't used at all with the Command Prompt shortcut found in your Start Menu.

Works With:
Windows Xp(should but I have not tried it)
Windows Me
Windows 98
Windows 95
