    First off, sorry if this is the wrong forum, I wasn't sure where to post it.

    I purchased the Microsoft Wedge Mouse for use with my primary desktop and for my Surface Pro. Is there a way to easily switch connection of the mouse between my desktop and SP? The problem I have is, when I switch connectivity to my SP it's fairly easy to do because I can touch the screen and go to devices to get it connected. But when I try to switch back to my desktop it's a pain because I have to try to navigate to devices using only the keyboard.

    Is there an easier way?

    Also, while using the wedge mouse with my laptop, it just seems to disconnect and I have to power the mouse down and on again before it starts working again. Kind of frustrating. Anyone experiencing this?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would say the quickest way would be to turn off BT on your Surface, and then the mouse should look for a new connection and find the desktop

    Are you using the surface edition or the regular one?

    How about using a program to create a script. Then you can run the script using the keyboard shortcut you assign. You should look into 'AutoHotKey'.

    Thanks guys for your replies.

    @Kevin2577 - I have tried disabling Bluetooth on my surface and the mice wouldn't re-connect to my laptop until I re-paired it.
    @unstoppablekem - I just bought the regular wedge mouse since I found out they are the same, mine just has the silver sides.
    @Rising Mos - I'll have to look into the AutoHotKey. Scripting it seems like a good option.

    I guess in the end, it's not a huge deal. I will primarily use the mouse with my laptop and then when I travel I can take the mouse and pair it to my surface. Luckily I don't travel to often to have to worry about it.
