Layout Profiles

ShareMouse can store different display layouts in case you use the same set of computers and displays in different arrangements or if you use a shared display in your setup that has multiple computers connected to different hardware inputs.

  4. Enter a meaningful name in the layout drop-down box.
  5. Move the display icons to match the physical display arrangement.
