Magic Mouse won't connect to Win 10

The Magic Mouse from Apple is one of the most high-tech mouse peripherals in the world, but many users reported that Apple Magic Mouse won’t connect to Windows 10. This can be a big problem, but, there’s a way to fix this issue.

When we installed windows 10 the wireless Apple mouse and keyboard installed fine. I accidentally removed the mouse in the Bluetooth devices in settings. Now I can only use my keyboard and I’m unable to get the mouse to successfully pair again. Sometimes windows finds it, but when I attempt to pair it, it says it didn’t work, and then it doesn’t display again. I then reboot windows and try again. It will only display the first time and then it just keeps searching without locating it. I’ve changed the batteries and I’m totally frustrated!
Please HELP!!
