Well I can tell you what it’s not ;
It’s not a mouse that runs around the world healing other mice in war-torn nations.
Mouse without borders (MWB) is a little software program built by Microsoft so a computer user can have two computers running separately -but- with one mouse and one keyboard controlling both. Once you experience it, you’ll wonder how you got along without it for so long.
As far as I can tell this little -but- tuff program has been out since the early 2000’s, and its talked about very little since then. The program doesn’t appear to need any improvements and or bug fixes. Its perfect just as it is.
Here’s what it does: First you have to install it onto both computers at the same time.
(make sure you’re connected to the Internet)
-mouse without borders works with a smartphone’s hotspot connection as well-
Once installed follow the instructions, the last step you enter a security code and the computer name you want to share the keyboard and mouse with.
From your secondary computer close that window.
Now from the system tray find (MWB) right-click on it, choose setting’s, a window will pop up with the security code you need. From your main computer enter that code, if the computer name isn’t correct on each computer MWB will not connect.
Click apply, and close the window.
That’s it, you should now be able to move your mouse from one computer to the other, and share the clipboard between the two, plus share the keyboard.
The setup process isn’t really that hard. Just keep trying if you miss the connection the first time. I love this program.
You can also follow MWB on Twitter.
Great to see Microsoft still keeping this lovely tool updated.
