    Question External mouse for use with VivoTabRT?

    Hi

    Does anyone have experience with an external mouse for use with Asus VivoTabRT when in dock?

    It has to be able to install and be used without requiring driver install (as this is Windows RT).
    I know there is a Microsoft Surface RT Wireless mouse however I am unsure if this is compatible with Windows 8 RT in general or Microsoft has just prepared the surface device with drivers for this accessory.

    So any experience with external mouse and VivoTab RT out there?

    Best regards

    Welcome to the forum
    A USB mouse, the Microsoft Mouse or a bluetooth mouse should all work with RT. No drivers should be needed.

    Thank you. Just tried it with my Microsoft BlueTooth mouse and it Works just as you said.

    No problem, RT is more limited than regular Windows 8 but it still has a fairly substantial driver database and the only things I know you would have problems with is with adding external webcams and scanners...

    MS also has a compatibility list on their site for you to check what has been tried so far or to give you a better idea of what would work or won't...
