The Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse

Microsoft launched the first IntelliMouse 23 years ago in 1996 (a year before “Twister” was the first DVD released in the United States). That first IntelliMouse was a game changer, and each subsequent update has brought additional performance. The last major update came in 2017 with the Classic IntelliMouse, a fantastic everyday desk mouse, which brought a faster tracking sensor, improvements to the feel of the buttons, and the return of the iconic tail light.

There was still room to do more, however, and the upgrades to the Pro IntelliMouse make it not only great for work, but also a best-in-class, gaming-ready mouse. It has an upgraded tracking sensor to capture everything from the smallest flicks to the largest gestures with greater speed. In a nod to modern gaming, there are subtle design updates inspired by the shadow and gradients that are popular on Xbox accessories. It features improved key actuation, a textured finish and a braided cable to stand up to the most demanding users. Its buttons feel more responsive and are more reliable than ever and are easy to customize in the Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center*. You can even customize the color of the taillight to match your mood, your surroundings, or your custom setup.

The fundamentals of the IntelliMouse all remain. You’ll appreciate the ergonomic design that has been a vital part of every IntelliMouse. With its wired design, you’ll never wait for it to pair or need to search for a dongle before getting down to work or play. The Pro IntelliMouse is easy to maneuver, with carefully calculated weight, stability and control. The longevity and influence of this iconic mouse have outlived most of the products launched when the first version appeared, and we’re excited to bring these latest innovations to a proven design.

The Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse is available for sale now through Microsoft Store in Canada and the United States with additional markets and retailers in Europe and Asia beginning in July. It will be available in Dark Shadow and Light Shadow.

*Customization available through the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Center. Customization not available on devices running Windows 10 in S mode.
