Mouse without Borders–Excellent tool I ever seen

From last couple of months I always use to think how if I can use my two laptops just like as extended desktop? How if I can use one single mouse and use it on both screens? how if I can I can just drag and drop some file from one laptop/desktop to other? but I never thought that there could be some tool which can allow me to do this.

And today the dream came true, I got this excellent tool called as “Mouse without Borders”. The tool developed as part of Garage projects program in Microsoft. Initially this tool was available only for internal use but now its available publically.

I downloaded it and tested it on my two laptops, its Excellent!!! simply great that’s why I can say. Trust me this is one of the best tool I even came to know.

Watch following video which explains “Mouse without Borders” and some of its key features.

by the way this is just half story, till now I just told you about using 1 mouse for 2 or more machines (current version supports 4 machines) but how if you can use your “Windows Phone” device as wireless mouse and keyboard. ???
