This is the ultimate tool for managing your Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard. Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center allows you to change the functions of keys as you like. Each button can have a Basic Setting that works with all programs included in the Windows Operating System, and multiple Application Specific Settings for particular cases.

Similar to other programs from Microsoft, this tool is designed to be user friendly with a neat interface. It automatically detects the type of keyboard and mouse that are connected to your computer, and arranges the main window accordingly. An image of the connected keyboard is shown, along with the keys, whose functions can be customized. You just have to click on a button to change its function. Hence, there is no confusion about what key you are editing.

Another feature I like is the guide on healthy-computing. It explains you how to position yourself while using the computer with images that are easy to understand. Right posture ensures that you do not develop any fatigue or pain while using a PC. Overall, it is the perfect device manager for a Keyboard/Mouse combination.
