Mouse Without Borders, a must-have productivity tool for power users

Consider this, you’re sitting at your desk. On it, you’ve got a desktop PC, a laptop and a Surface. Haven’t you ever wished that you could use a single keyboard and mouse to control all of those devices without having to fiddle with any cables?

While you could invest in additional hardware to do just that, there is an easier, simpler solution; enter Mouse Without Borders. This nifty piece of software came as a result of the Microsoft Garage initiative which set out to inspire developers to create innovative software applications.

Getting Mouse Without Borders set up is a fairly easy process; simply install it on all the PC’s you want to connect and follow the on-screen instructions. As long as all your devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you’ll be up and running in seconds. If you’re looking for even more flexibility, you could install the Windows Phone or Windows Store versions of the app. You’re completely covered.

Mouse Without Borders is an absolute must-have for power-users, and as a bonus, the app also allows you to drag and drop files across PC screens as easily as you would on a single PC running multiple displays. Copy pasting text works just the same too. It’s an easy, convenient, yet powerful solution that frankly should be built right into Windows.
