Two mice - one cursor - two monitors

Jump to solution

I have connected my XPS desktop to a Sony tv in the next room and have found that my wireless mouse will work in both locations. I would like to watch videos on one side of the screen on the tv while someone in the next room will use the left side of the screen for email or whatever at the same time. So I would like to have a mouse in each room both using the one cursor. Leaving aside practical usage issues, technically is it possible just to buy another mouse to use with the original mouse setup?

Thanks

Windows 7 Does not support multiple mice with 2 monitors as in 2 independent mice.   You can add many mice, 1,2,3,4

But they will all be the same cursor.  So if you have 2 mice whoever moves the mouse last will have control of the mouse until the other person starts moving the mouse.  Then it will vary between the 2.  Just as you can add a mouse to a laptop with a trackpad etc.
