Microsoft Adds Windows Button On new Mice


Microsoft is offering two new mice designed specifically for Windows. These are the first mice from Microsoft to include a Windows button on them, giving you quick and easy access to specific features in the OS.

The Sculpt Comfort Mouse follows the release of the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard Microsoft announced last fall. The Sculpt Comfort Mouse has a touch-sensitive blue strip on its side called the Windows touch tab that makes it easy to navigate Windows 8 with just the touch or swipe of a finger. When pressed, it of course takes you to your Start screen, just like the Windows buttons on keyboards, PCs and tablets.

If you swipe up on the blue strip, it cycles through all your open Windows Store apps in Windows 8. And if you swipe down, it will reveal all the open apps (on the left side of your screen) for you to select the one you want. The Sculpt Comfort Mouse uses Bluetooth to connect to your Windows PC or tablet. Microsoft's BlueTrack technology also ensures the mouse can be used on pretty much any surface.

The Sculpt Comfort Mouse will be available in June for an estimated retail price of $39.95 (U.S.).



The Sculpt Mobile Mouse ialso comes with a Windows button which works on Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Like the Sculpt Comfort Mouse, it also has four-way scrolling ? meaning you can scroll sideways by tilting the scroll wheel to the right or left in addition to the vertical scrolling you?re used to. This makes navigating the Start screen in Windows 8 or apps that scroll horizontally easy. The Sculpt Mobile Mouse has a compact design, a tiny wireless USB transceiver, and BlueTrack technology.

The Sculpt Mobile Mouse will be available in May for an estimated retail price of $29.95 (U.S.).
