The repetitive clicking sound of a mouse can become pretty irritating. If you want to silence your mouse for your own peace — and the peace of others around you — a little memory foam can do the trick with no soldering required.

If you’re tired of the click, click, click, there are some options. You can buy a “silent” mouse, but there’s no telling how silent they will actually be. Or you can do a little work on your favourite mouse.
You will need to open up your mouse — and be somewhat comfortable with small electronics — but R. Anderson’s guide on HubPages explains everything you need to know. The internals of every mouse aren’t identical, but the mechanical parts you’ll be working with will be similar. Once you cut a few tiny pieces of memory foam and follow all of the instructions, you’ll be stealth clicking in no time. You can find the complete guide at the link below.
