Has  anyone installed the Microsoft keyboard and mouse drivers today?  I have Win 8.1  after starting up the computer today, I see I have one new security update, and two optional.  Neither the keyboard, or either of my two mice are Microsoft.  I am not sure whether to install them or not.  The security update keeps saying preparing to install, but it is taking much much longer than normal to install.  I decided to do it first, then ask about these other two.  I don't want to mess up my keyboard and mouse with an update not meant for their brand.  Thoughts please?

The drivers are not specifically for a Microsoft mouse, it's aimed at a HID - compliant mouse.

 

A mouse is a plug and play device, unless it is a specialized gaming mouse you shouldn't need anything other than the native Windows driver in the operating system.  That is what the updated drivers for the mouse are.

So if I get what you are saying right, I don't need it.  My keyboard is your basic Dell keyboard.  My main mouse is a Logitech marble mouse.  It is wireless.  Then for a backup I have that basic mouse they send you from Dell, with your computer.  Thank you for helping me.  :guitar:
