The Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center doesn't work with Windows 10 PCs in S Mode and didn't work with Windows 10 PCs powered by ARM processors until this update. Now, more Windows 10 PC owners can customize their mouse and keyboard experience.

In addition to adding support for Windows 10 on ARM PCs, the latest update also adds support for the Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard, Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse. Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard, Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse, Surface Pro X, and other Windows 10 ARM-based PCs.
