    I was wondering if it was possible to hook up a mouse to my screen since the screen isn't responsive any longer.

    No touch response?

    That is a good question -- I haven't tried it, but it may work.
    I would suspect it would not because the Pi is running Raspbian with a dedicated extension to OctoPi that runs the LCD menu so I doubt it will acknowledge a mouse BUT you might give it a try. If Raspbian desktop sees the mouse then the LCD might
    You could SSH into the Pi (or VNC) and see if the mouse works there and if so it may work on the LCD -- big if, but I have no clue :)

    Might be easier to just buy a replacement LCD :) They are available on Amazon for not a lot... We should have the details in the FAQ
