I've optimised my monitor / mouse / keyboard / zoom camera / phone charger / other phone charger / watch charger / headphone charger / zoom lamp setup so it's all neatly cabled to the back of my monitor. To do this I needed a USB-C extension cable.

It mostly worked. Except for the mouse. OK: everything except the mouse. I tested the plugs, I swapped things in and out, I checked the mouse worked when plugged into the laptop directly. Nothing worked.

Until I unplugged the USB-C extension cord, twisted it 180 degrees, and plugged it back in.

Now it works.

This makes no sense to me.
cheers
Chris Maunder
