There are many users who are skeptical about the lack of Start button in Windows 8. Well, Microsoft have come up with a solution.

Microsoft just announced two mice with Start Button in it – for the first time in the history of mouse designing. The Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse marks the first time Redmond has made a pointing device with a hotkey for the Windows 8 Start screen. It will work just as the Windows Button present in the keyboard.



It can also be used to return to the desktop. That Comfort Mouse’s Start button is at the left – making it perfectly designed for right handed users, which might cause a problem for left handed users.

For connectivity, the Mobile Mouse requires a dongle, whereas the Comfort uses Bluetooth.
