Microsoft has provided many great applications that cater to the users’ needs. That’s one of the reasons why Windows has been so successful all these years. One such application is the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center.
This application has gone under the radar of many, which is sad as it provides ultimate customizability for Microsoft mouse and keyboards. In this article, I have given a detailed review of this app and provided the download links of it.
Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center
Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is an application that helps you get the most out of the Microsoft mouse and keyboards. This application allows customization options for Microsoft mouse and keyboards.
When you buy and use the Microsoft mouse and keyboards on Windows, you will realize that they only work as default and generic drivers. This doesn’t allow users to use many of the special functionality of these devices. Generally, before the mouse and keyboard center application came, users had to install certain Microsoft keyboard and mouse drivers to access those special functionalities.
These Microsoft keyboard and mouse drivers were IntelliPoint and IntelliType Pro. This obviously was a much more round-about away as users had to install to separate drivers. Now, with the release of the Mouse and Keyboard Center app, which is the successor of both the IntelliPoint and IntelliType Pro combined, there is no need to install other extra drivers.
This utility helps the Microsoft keyboard and mouse users bring the best out of the peripherals. Overall, this app is extremely useful for anyone who uses a Microsoft mouse or keyboard.
New Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center ARM64 Support
Microsoft has recently updated the mouse and keyboard center app and released a separate version for ARM64 processors. Till this update, the Mouse and Keyboard Center app didn’t work on ARM64 processors. With this new update, Mouse and Keyboard Center supports the following new devices:
- Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse
- Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard
- Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard
- Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse
- Surface Pro X and other Windows 10 ARM-based PCs.
Sadly, the Mouse and Keyboard Center is still unavailable in the Windows 10- S mode that Microsoft developed for low specs laptops.
