Microsoft Touch Mouse

Microsoft has updated the driver of their original Touch Mouse to make it more Windows 8 friendly.

The update now adds the ability to use multi-touch gestures, including two fingers to manage apps and display charms.

With the update the need to use keyboard shortcuts or screen edges/corners are mostly eliminated.

The full list of new supported gestures include:
