Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center
Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is a simple program for Windows that allows you to customize your Microsoft mouse or keyboard and configure the key associations.
When you purchase a new keyboard or mouse, you know what to expect in terms of functionality. However, if you have a Microsoft input peripheral and you want to customize it, you may try Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. Once you install the software, it automatically detects compatible devices connected to the PC and helps you to configure them.
Depending on the type of equipment you want to personalize, you will be able to tweak the behavior of the keys located on your keyboard so that they open different items from your taskbar or launch a preselected application, website or file. In addition, you have the ability to adjust the timing in macros. This means, you can add delay to events such as key presses or mouse clicks.
Another convenient function of this utility is that you are able to make customizations active only in predefined programs. This is especially useful if you want to speed up the tasks in Microsoft Access or within various games like Deluxe Ski Jump. Thanks to this feature, the same key can be used for a particular function within Explorer, a different one within your browser and another one while playing.
