Windows 10 is off to a very successful start. All around the world, users of Windows 7 and 8 are upgrading to the new version at a furious pace. This is a very smart move, as for the first time ever, a major update to Microsoft's operating system is being offered to the masses at no charge.
While Windows 10 should run absolutely fine on existing computers and current accessories, that doesn't mean there can't be improvements. Today, Microsoft announces updates to its well-respected line of mice and keyboards, with a focus on Windows 10. Will you upgrade your keyboard and mouse to its new offerings?
"Following the launch of Windows 10 last week, we're excited to announce new and updated PC accessories that take advantage of the latest Windows 10 features and functionality. Don't forget to download our Mouse and Keyboard Center to further customize your keyboard and mouse settings and take advantage of all Windows has to offers", says Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft.
LeBlanc further explains, "the Sculpt Comfort Desktop and Sculpt Comfort Mouse will be available via Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com on July 29. The Wireless Desktop/Keyboard 850 will be available via Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com on September 23. The Wireless Desktop 3050 and 5050 will be available via Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com on October 7, 2015".

Security-minded individuals will particularly love the Wireless Desktop 900, Wireless Desktop 850, Wireless Desktop 3050 and Wireless Comfort Desktop 5050 as the keyboards feature AES encryption. Businesses working with sensitive data in particular should take special notice, as this can potentially protect against keyloggers.
If you just need a mouse, the Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 looks like a winner, as it has a 4-way scroll wheel -- a much appreciated feature for Excel users. It looks very comfortable too.
