“Control multiple PCs with one mouse” MS adds new features to Power Toy

A nice addition to Microsoft’s utility software toolbox. It is ‘Mouse Without Borders’. With this, you can control multiple PCs with one mouse. A new ‘Peek’ function has been added to preview multiple files that Windows’ File Explorer does not support. This function PowerToys 0.70.0 (PowerToys 0.70.0) versioncan be used in

In fact, the beginnings of the Borderless Mouse feature go back quite a while. It was unveiled as part of the Microsoft Garage incubator project in 2018. Microsoft refined the app five years later, added it to the .NET 7 standard, and eventually made it to Power Toys. Power Toy is an integrated app that includes dozens of small features that Windows doesn’t support on its own.

The Borderless Mouse function is useful for workers who work from home using both a work PC and a personal PC. The concept itself is very simple. The idea is to allow both PCs to run both the Borderless Mouse apps. Users can then simply switch from one PC to the other. After dragging the mouse cursor to the end of one PC screen, you can move to the other PC screen. It’s so simple that it doesn’t need a long explanation. In addition, with this app, you can share the clipboard between two PCs and send and receive files up to 100MB in size.

To use Mouse Without Borders, you first need to set up a security key on one PC. Just enter this security key into another PC and reposition it like multiple monitors. In some cases, you may need to modify your firewall settings.

In fact, the Borderless Mouse feature itself isn’t new. Samsung Flow, for example, not only supports something similar to this feature, but also covers phones and tablets in addition to PCs. Logitech also has its own app with similar functionality called Logitech Flow. Still, Mouse Without Borders is well worth installing. It’s a particularly satisfying app for lazy people, as you just need to turn on two PCs and connect them to the same wireless network, and you’re ready to go.

Peak, on the other hand, is also a simple feature. Many Windows users will be familiar with the File Explorer preview pane, but Pitt is also a simple preview pane. Tap the activation shortcut (Ctrl+Space) to preview the image or file contents. Unfortunately, Microsoft’s documentation doesn’t yet support it, but it looks like it’ll be added soon.
