Microsoft Mouse Without Borders

"Allows you to control up to 4 computers from a single mouse and keyboard. This means that with Mouse w/o Borders you can drag and drop or copy and paste text, screen capture and file across computers."

Fantastic piece of kit, simple setup, works out the box and its free...

I was hoping for more information. I found this link which did but barely:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/garage/profiles/mouse-without-borders/

The thing I'm not clear on is the hardware used. Does the keyboard and/or mouse
have to be wireless? Bluetooth? USB wireless? I have a keyboard I'm not willing
to replace with a more modern one that is hard wired usb plug-in. It's really
surprising how lacking Microsoft information is on their website. Its like
they want you to download and install it and then read about it later.

Its a software alternative to a KVM switch which I had but was causing drop-out problems and wires everywhere..
It links the pc's together over I.P. The only thing I stupidly didn't appreciate was that both PC's have to be on; this is the advantage of a KVM switch.
Once setup [any] the mouse moves from one PC screen to the next and whatever screen the mouse is on has the keyboard.
I used these links before installing.

I've had good luck with KVM switches in the past. However the one I
have is kind of dated being VGA and I'm probably going to get a DVI
one. I'm leaning towards the same brand I had before but I'm certainly
open to any brands or experiences that anyone else might be using now.
