Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is software that provides drivers for most Microsoft mice and keyboards. It allows the user to set up and configure both mice and keyboards from within the same program.


Whereas Microsoft mice and Microsoft keyboards were previously controlled from two separate programs - IntelliPoint and IntelliType - the Mouse and Keyboard Centre is responsible for both kinds of devices. 32- and 64-bit versions of the software are available, and the program integrates with Windows 8's "Modern UI" interface. When the program is launched after installation it will automatically detect the user's compatible mice and keyboards if they are connected to the PC.

Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center supports USB devices; it does not support - automatically detect and configure - PS/2, Bluetooth, and some older USB devices,[1] as detailed in the following sections.
