The selection of a computer mouse is probably one of the most personal tech choices to be made. The fit of the device in the hand, the click of the buttons, and the flick of the scroll wheel all must be perfect. If not, your productivity on the desktop computer is shot.

In this age of tablets for on-the-go computing, computer mice are all but ignored in favor of touch screens and sketch pens. But what if you want to utilize your tablet while also working on a desktop project?

Logitech has a solution, and it is as small as … well, a mouse.

The MX series of wireless computer mice utilizes a feature called Logitech FLOW, which allows one mouse to control everything on up to three screens on three distinct computers. Open programs that are native to each computer and share the results among them.

MX Master 2S

Logitech’s MX Master 2S provides a comfortable, natural position for your hand with contours that will please ergonomically inclined users. I used it for hours without any issues of fatigue.

The rechargeable battery reportedly holds up to 70 days of power, probably longer if you are like me and turn off the mouse when not in use. The Master uses high-precision tracking on nearly any flat surface, including glass. And if black’s not your thing, it also comes in navy and stone.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is more compact, but still has a sculpted shape for comfortable use. Small enough to tuck into a backpack pocket, the Anywhere lives up to its name and works well with any PC tablet.

It has the same battery and high-precision tracking as its larger counterpart. The Master has two scroll wheels, one on the top for vertical scrolling and a thumb scroll for horizontal scrolling. Anywhere has the top wheel only. It also comes in the same colors as the MX Master.

A push of the center button on both mice reveals all open windows and programs in Windows 10. The mice connect to computer either using Bluetooth or with a dongle that plugs into a USB port.

The FLOW technology sets these mice apart from others devices. All I did was download the FLOW program on each computer, pairing up the mouse to each. I had three computer screens at my command with just one cursor and less clutter on my desk.

Copying and pasting text and sharing images or moving files around was a breeze. No more uploading and downloading through a cloud server to get one project to work with another. It also came in very handy when the power went out and I had no internet service to work from the cloud.

The FLOW program lets users set up button selections for specific applications. Whether is it a Microsoft Office document, a graphics program or a web browser, the mouse can be configured to respond to whatever button clicks you want for that program.

Working off of two (or three) computers for the office or school should not require multiple mice and cloud computing to get them to work together. The MX mice put the solution in the palm of your hand.
