Introduction

ShareMouse allows you to control multiple Macs or Windows computers with the mouse or keyboard of any other computer:

Moving the mouse to the screen of another computer, causes the mouse pointer to jump to that screen, allowing you to control a remote computer:

ShareMouse transmits mouse/keyboard actions through the existing network connection.

  • Each computer can control the cursor of any other computer within the network, in any direction. There is no static "master" or "slave" role.
  • You can drag & drop files and copy & paste the clipboard between Mac and Windows computers.
  • The monitor manager allows you to visually adjust monitor positions for seamless mouse transitions.
  • ShareMouse creates profiles for each work place and automatically switches the monitor layout.
  • Unused displays can be optionally dimmed. Arrow trails help finding the mouse cursor in large monitor arrays.
  • Advanced options prevent accidental monitor switching when operating near the edges of a monitor.
  • ShareMouse can synchronize screensaver, login/logout and shutdown between computers.
  • Multiple workplaces can be isolated from each other by enabling the password protection.
  • Network traffic is securely AES encrpyted.
