Back in 2011 Microsoft opened their Garage and let out some software that enables you to control up to 4 PC’s from a single mouse and keyboard. Its called Mouse Without Borders and it’s very cool! Now they have updated it to support Windows 8.


Mouse Without Borders is a Microsoft Garage project by Truong Do. Garage projects are side projects that Microsoft employees like Truong build for fun on their nights and weekends. Mouse Without Borders was designed for people who use many computers in the same room. For example, a laptop or tablet that you take to meetings might sit right alongside the desktop PC in your office.

New in this release: Work better with Windows 8; Remote control from Windows Phone 7, Windows 8 tablet; New features and bug fixes.

    Interesting, never heard of it. I wonder if it’s as good or better than Synergy? Synergy works but is a bit buggy. I want to control my HTPC from my Laptop mouse easily/seemlessly

      Yup! Love it, you can still disable corners just like Syergy. It no longer locks up during UAC popups as well. It just keeps going and going. I like how I can control both machines from each’s mouse now as well. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the Microsoft Wedge BT Mouse or the Logitech Touch t400 Mouse for the HTPC vs my Laptop. Now I have both next to each other and can pick the one I want. Keyboard shares perfect. Copy and Paste is sweet. Bye Bye Synergy, Hello Mouse without borders.
