Using two mouses at once

This may sound crazy however.
Could using a mouse with cable connection to my computer plus a cordless mouse at the same time have any effect on the computer. Damage etc?

You can have two connected at the same time, but only use a single mouse at any given time.

Using Two Mice

In reply to: You can have

You can use two mice simultaneously (although, I can't think why you would want to!). My laptop has a trackpad with a switch to disable it.
I use a wireless-USB mouse 99% of the time.
If I switch the trackpad on, they both work. Only difference is that the speed of the trackpad is slower than the mouse and I see no way of setting them independently.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
