Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center now supports ARM64 PCs like the Surface Pro X

If you use Microsoft's Surface Precision Mouse, or a variety of other peripherals from the company, then you're probably familiar with Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. A couple of days ago, the firm introduced Mouse and Keyboard Center 12, and there's a big new feature: support for ARM64 PCs, such as the Surface Pro X.

The utility offers a range of customization options for Microsoft peripherals, which depend on the device. You'll usually be able to customize what buttons do on mice, and so on. With a Surface Precision Mouse, you can actually set it so that dragging the pointer to one side of the display will let you start controlling a second PC that the mouse is paired with, similar to how it would work dragging the pointer between screens on a dual-monitor setup.

But even though the Surface Pro X is a Surface product, users weren't able to use this Surface peripheral to its full potential. Now, they can, with the latest version of Mouse and Keyboard Center.

Microsoft also added support for a few new peripherals:

  • Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard
  • Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse
  • Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard
  • Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse

It seems as though the update was published on January 15, three days ago. If you want to download the ARM64 version (or any version), you can grab Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center here.
