Getting started

  1. Launch ShareMouse on all computers.
  2. The ShareMouse symbol shows up in the lower right of the Windows task bar (in the upper right menu bar on a Mac):

    Windows hides icons of newly installed programs in a task bar sub menu by default. To make it visible in the task bar, click the rectangle icon and drag the ShareMouse symbol into the task bar:

  3. All computers must be connected to the same local network. ShareMouse must pass the firewall. ShareMouse does not work over the internet. If using a VPN, make sure that it doesn't cut/route local network traffic over the internet.
  4. A successful connection is indicated by a green circle with a check mark in the ShareMouse icon:

    Perfect! If you see this icon on all computers, ShareMouse is ready to use!

If you do not see this icon, check out the troubleshooting section.
