    You can't, mice are not supported on the iPad - there is no cursor for a mouse to control, there is only an insertion point when entering or editing text.

    Actually, there is a mouse like function.  If you pair to a wireless keyboard, the cursor control keys (up, down, right and left arrows) will move the text insertion point around the text field. It's a bit primitive, almost retro, but it does act like a mouse in the sense of moving your insertion point around inside a block of text. But you should return that mouse, or buy a MacBook Air for it. ;-)
