Obviously the easiest way to rid yourself of a mousepad is by tossing the mouse trying out another type of input device. Multi-touch trackpads are the rage and as our operating systems evolve they could very well take over the mouse for many people. From Apple's Magic Trackpad to Wacom's Bamboo Tablets, options abound for those willing to take that route. In many instances though, a mouse and therefore a mouse pad is a necessity.
Using contact paper is an easy fix we discovered when switching to a glass desk, replacing the traditional mouse pad. Getting our mouse to work on contact paper over glass was much easier than finding a mouse that worked on glossy surfaces. The real benefit here is that you can choose a piece to your desired size, shape and color to work with. The possibilities are endless but the concept is so simple. If you don't like the look of that mouse pad on your desk or you're tired of having to reposition, ditch it! Contact paper just made your life better!
