For its new Touch Mouse


Microsoft has already made it clear that Windows 8 will have additional gesture functionality and the outfit has now detailed some of those new gestures, provided you have Microsoft's Touch Mouse sitting next to your keyboard.

Once Windows 8 kicks off, Touch Mouse will feature one finger slide and flick gestures for scrolling, two fingers slide for apps management as well as three fingers slide for zooming. Microsoft also threw in a thumb gesture to navigate back and forward through apps.

Microsoft also claims that these will greatly improve Windows 8 navigation, "making it a breeze".

The good news is that Microsoft's Touch Mouse got a price cut and can be found for as low as US $30 at Amazon.com, if you hurry that is.

You can check out more details over at the Microsoft Windows blog.
