Hi, I am looking for a good remote control for the keyboard and mouse on Windows 8. I had an Android app that I was using under Windows 7 but the mouse won't work under Windows 8. The developer said this is not possible on Windows 8 touch screen devices. I am now considering hardware remote controls but I'm concerned about the mouse issue before purchasing. Any input on keyboard and mouse remote controls that work under Windows 8/8.1 would be very welcome. Thanks!

Hi, if you still have your Android phone or tablet you can use Vectir Remote Control. I am successfully using this for controlling the mouse and keyboard on a Windows 8 touch screen computer. It has a dedicated keyboard and mouse driver which will make it work on any Windows PC. It also works really well as a VLC and iTunes remote control.

Android remote control app download:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=incendo.vectir.androidclient

Vectir PC remote control download:
Vectir - IR, WiFi and Bluetooth Remote Control, Mobile Phone PC Media Player Controller

Hope I've helped!

Wow - I didn't expect such a fast reply!!! Vectir remote control looks promising, I had given up on the Android PC remote control idea. I am going to install this now and see how it goes thanks again!

Vectir remote control works! I am now controlling the mouse and keyboard on my Windows 8 PC from my Nexus S Android tablet. This will save a few $$$. Thanks a million!
