Joystick-To-Mouse is a Windows software program that allows any joystick to point & click just like a mouse.

Joystick-To-Mouse allows the joystick to position the mouse cursor and enables the joystick buttons to operate as mouse buttons. Joystick-To-Mouse has been widely acclaimed in the Assistive Technology community because it provides computer access and control via joystick to physically challenged users on a Windows platform. Joystick-To-Mouse has been widely accepted by children, recreational users, and other users who prefer the joystick over the mouse or trackball.

Technical Information

Joystick-To-Mouse is a standard Windows Application and does not require any special drivers, and should work with all keyboard and mouse emulation drivers that are compatible with the ones that ship with Microsoft Windows.

Joystick-To-Mouse will work with any gaming device or controller that is installed and seen within the Windows Control panel as a joystick / gamepad / gaming option / game controller. In simple terms, the software transforms game controller (USB device) events into mouse and keyboard events. The software allows a user on a joystick to completely control windows, but can also turn a driving wheel into a computer interface device, or allow an intra-oral camera to take pictures.

Games and other software that use DirectX or operate outside of the normal Windows Desktop will not work with Joystick-To-Mouse. User Account Control and the secure desktop / logon desktop are not supported. Version 2.80 works with the Windows 11 / 10 / 8.1 / 8 Start Screen and Windows Store Apps.
