Looking for mouse that can be used on two computers

I'm looking for a wireless mouse (that connects with a USB transceiver or with Bluetooth) that I can connect to two different Windows 10 computers and that will allow me to move the mouse pointer between and use the mouse on the two computers.

What kinds of wireless mice are available that will allow me to do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The two I am aware of are the Surface Precision Mouse and one of the high end Razer mice.  Logitech discontinued the one they made a few years back and, last I checked, hadn't offered a new version.

Can you please provide me with the model numbers of these mice (including the Logitech mouse) so I can search for them on Amazon and eBay?

Are there any mouse/keyboard combinations that can do this?

I would like to be able to move the mouse pointer to a particular computer and then use the wireless keyboard on whatever computer/monitor is made active with the mouse pointer.

Are there any mouse/keyboard combinations that can do this?

If your computer connected with LAN there is a way to use single mouse with 2-3 & more systems.

Yes software solutions will be fine.

Do I need to use any kind of special mice with these software solutions or are these software solutions fully compatible with all mice?

Shaun,

Do these solutions you have mentioned work as long as all computers are on the same Wi-Fi network or do the computers have to be connected with a Local Area Network (LAN) cable?

Hi Knowledgeable,
Software name already shared by Shaun Vermaak, you can download & install. You have to configure main system which have Keyboard & mouse as a primary/master/server computer & another computer which is connected with LAN set as secondary/slave/client computer. I am using Synergy from 4-5 years & InputDirector from 2-3 years to windows & Ubuntu systems in my network computers . I am going to share some print screen for the same.
