And keyboards and webcams

Software king of the world Microsoft will no longer manufacture mice, keyboards, and webcams that are Microsoft-branded.

Instead, Microsoft is now focusing on its Surface-branded PC accessories, which include mice, keyboards, and pens.

While it is still making the gear, all this brings to an end Microsoft-branded PC hardware after the company first launched its first mouse in 1983 and bundled it with Microsoft Word and Notepad.

Microsoft spokesperson Dan Laycock said that the company was focusing on our Windows PC accessories portfolio under the Surface brand.

"We will continue to offer a range of Surface-branded PC Accessories -- including mice, keyboards, pens, docks, adaptive accessories, and more. Existing Microsoft branded PC accessories like mice, keyboards, and webcams will continue to be sold in existing markets at existing sell-in prices while supplies last."
