If your Microsoft Mobile Mouse (or other USB wireless mouse) stops working, yet you’ve not changed any settings, installed any additional software or otherwise there is one fix that may work for you, as I discovered.

Simply change your location! I was experiencing interference from some device local to me – by moving 3 feet the interference stopped and my device started working again.

If that doesn’t resolve it, Microsoft recommend un-installing the device through the “Devices” Control panel then replugging the device again.
