ShareMouse is a free application that allows us to use a single keyboard and mouse to control multiple computers . With this tool we can mount our workstation with a desktop and laptop for example and easily manage between both without the need to change keyboard and mouse. The latest version available of ShareMouse is beta 1.0.52 . We tell you the details and we provide you with the download link at the end of the article.
Using ShareMouse is really easy. The first step is to install it on the computers that we want to associate with the same mouse and keyboard . These computers must be connected by network (wireless or cable). With the program running on both computers, you simply have to move the mouse to the edge of the screen . It will go dark and the mouse will appear on the other computer's screen. Now we can control the other equipment, in addition to using the same keyboard on both.
With this application we can share files between computers easily. We can drag a file from one screen to another and drop it in the destination folder of the other computer. It also allows you to share the files copied to the clipboard (giving it to copy on one computer, and paste on the other). The speed of data transmission will depend on the capacity of the network in which the computers are. We can configure the order of the screens, use a combination of keys to switch to the other computer quickly or set a password so that unauthorized equipment does not use your computer.
Other ShareMouse options are to change the paste keys to share files between computers (by default it is Ctrl + v), choose the network port and update to new versions directly from the program settings . Another aspect of this program that stands out is its compatibility with different operating systems ( Windows XP, Vista and 7, as well as Mac OSX ), and being able to control a Mac from a PC and vice versa. In short, we are faced with a very useful and easy-to-use tool that allows us to work with several computers at the same time with the convenience of not having to continuously change keyboard and mouse.
