ShareMouse - Mouse and Keyboard Sharing Software Screenshot

Please note folks, a separate ShareMouse license is required for each individual PC. So, if ShareMouse is used with 3 PCs, you'll need to pick up 3 licenses.

Your desk space is limited as it is - so why clutter it even further with additional peripherals? While it may be necessary to use more than one computer, what's not necessary is to have stacks of different keyboards and multiple mice for different hardware setups. That's where today's discount software promotion, ShareMouse, comes into play.

ShareMouse lets you share a mouse and keyboard with multiple networked computers. With ShareMouse, you don't ever have to swap out different sets of peripherals when you switch from one machine to another. In fact, with ShareMouse, all you need to do is just move your mouse pointer to the computer that you wish to control, then resume working as usual! There's no button to push, no switch to toggle. Just glide your mouse over to the border of a monitor, and BAM, your mouse jumps to the next monitor and is automatically linked to that corresponding computer.

You can even use ShareMouse for file transfers between computers, even between different Macs and Windows PCs. Just drag files from one computer over to another - it's that easy! Plus, all of your input is encrypted and transmitted over your existing LAN connection. And, as you would expect, you can even share the clipboard between computers, so stuff you copy on one machine is immediately available for pasting on any other machine.

Chris Wilson So will this offer cover the soon to be released version 2 (in Beta) ShareMouse?

...or when v2 is released will it still be an extra 50% of the full cost as an upgrade fee (per computer/licence) as well?

And, as they can support keyboards and mice as well, are there any plans to include Android computers and tablets as well?

Bartels Media The promotion is offering the current version ShareMouse v1. Release of v2 is not scheduled yet.

Please check the tab "fine print" here or our shop page at regarding the update/upgrade policy.

Android computers are not yet supported.

Phred E I notice that you depend on a hardware signature.
That sig may be established at purchase - but if Bartels Media goes out of business, or is bought by Google, how does that leave us with a hardware-locked/Bartels-dependent piece of software? Can we change hardware components, deauthorise and reauthorise, uninstall and move to another computer?
These 'phone home' systems protect publishers but can leave buyers with severely malfunctional software purchases.
(A single licence for a multiple-computer software package seems a bit of a contradiction..)

Bertie Brummel This software may be of interest for users with two or more separate monitors. However, according to the FAQ it is impossible to replace a hardware KVM switch in the standard situation:
2 or more computers but only 1 monitor, keyboard and mouse.
Apr 9 2013 at 1:37am Copy Link
Bartels Media @Bertie: Actually, a user reported, that he uses ShareMouse with just a single monitor, but indeed, this would require a monitor with two inputs or a hardware monitor switch. In such special case, you can also use a kvm to switch mouse/keyboard as well.

Susan Goodhart I'm confused on the licensing. Does this mean if I want to control 2 other computers from my main computer that I have to buy 3 licenses? I sure hope not.

Noggin The Nog I gather from the video that no licence has to be purchased to use this software for non-business use. Is that correct?
Apr 9 2013 at 4:48am Copy Link
Bartels Media @Susan: We are very sorry, that our licensing seems to be confusing. Please let me explain: ShareMouse requires a separate license for each computer. As one license is required for each of your computers (see above) and as you have three computers, you would need three licenses. So, you can apply one license for each of your three computers. One per computer. Three computers - Three licenses.

Jesse Hall I am not at all trying to be difficult however why should I spend 10.00 per workstation with this software then say utilize Synergy which is free and has been for the last 10 years I have used it. I am trying to see the benefit of this over that open source software.

frank castle I believe I said it before there are free apps out there for this, plus there is hardware - j5 create wormhole cable from
Cost 24.99 for '2 computers' vs 49.90 for 2 pcs with some DRM thrown in there.

If you want to go pro look at the blackbox ServSwitch Freedom

I do own a few wormhole cables and I do not get paid for any endorsements.

Bartels Media @Jesse: This is a very good question and we kindly ask you to check out http://www.keyboard-and-m...native.htm

@Frank: You probably have missed, that ShareMouse is $10 per computer today and not $25

Also, those cables are for max two computers and the Mac-Windows version cost $40 and not $25. Additionally, why would anyone occupy a USB port if ShareMouse can do the same trick via your existing network connection and even cable-free via WLAN?

Loco Driver I purchased this application the last time ShareMouse was offered on BitsDuJour. At first I was hesitant because I'd have to buy 3 licences (Two desktops and a laptop) but I'm glad I did. I probably use this software more than any other that I've purchased. It has become the replacement for "sneaker-net". No more plugging & unplugging memory chips or thumb-drives.

Windows allows you to "share" folders, but this is SO much easier. Say my wife creates or downloads a file and I want to take a closer look, I just move my mouse cursor to her screen, click and drag it to my screen.

Also, my wife isn't the most technically inclined, so if she hits a snag I don't have to grab her keyboard & mouse, I just move my mouse into her video and fix the problem while she watches.

Thanks Bartels -

Roger Thomasson @ Everybody

There's been some confusion about the ShareMouse licensing setup. In a nutshell, ShareMouse is a la carte. And we think that's a nice thing.

Say you want to pay for 3 licenses instead of 4? With this setup, you can do it! Say you already have four ShareMouse licenses and simply want to pick a 5th? With this setup, you can do it.

Hope that clears it up.

van zan Use multiplicity from Stardock, old but reliable and not hardware keying etc. Running windows 7 and 8 swapping around no problem including clipboard swapping. Up to 9 pc's including audio too, free for personal use to boot, does it get better than that??
Apr 9 2013 at 3:40pm Copy Link
Bartels Media @van: - The other "free" solution does not support 9 computers but is limited to 2 computers , it does not include clipboard sync and it does not support audio. Compared to ShareMouse, it lacks cross-platform Mac support, auto-detection and fine-tuning of monitor positions, data encryption and many more features.

Marc Beisner I just bought 5 licenses of ShareMouse. Duing the last years I tested a lot of different solutions and dedicated software for this purpose. Problem with the other solution is the lack of features in terms of supporting platforms and usability. InputDirector is fine if you only use Windows bases systems. Synergy is good for a mix of different operating systems, but can be a real pain to set up. For me, ShareMouse seems to be the best overall solution.

BTW. I am also interested in your MultiMouse Software, any chance to see a discount an that?
Apr 10 2013 at 8:42am Copy Link
Bartels Media @Marc, thanks for the kind words. The price for MultiMouse has been significantly reduced just recently, so there is not much headroom for an additional promotion at this time. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Louis H I like this, and am thankful it was extended for another day. At $75 for three licenses it would not be going into my toolbox, but for the price of one license plus 5$, I'm in.

It is not that it is not worth the $75, it is simply a matter of budget.

I have three systems that I use and have wanted to set them up next to each other, but the space I have to work in has not been very conducive to this due to needing three keyboards and three mice, and so I have three separate workstation areas.

This utility will allow me to restructure my workstations down to one. Which is really nice, since I desperately need some more room for bookshelves!

Thank you to Bartels and BDJ for the discount and additional day for taking advantage of the deal.

Faisal Humayun This was such a tempting offer. Unfortunately, my secondary workstations are linux (ubuntu) boxes and will have to keep settled with a KVM solution (which doesn't offer the very fine copy/paste, and drag/drop features of this program). I hope Bartels Media would consider making a client for linux PC's ( debian based ones are supremely popular ).

Emil Kucera Tried on XP desktop with W7 laptop, unfortunately the Settings and the monitor setup screen only worked on the laptop, on the desktop the window showed up on the monitor as inactive (gray titlebar) and neither accepted input, nor was it possible to close it without exiting the entire program. Pity, the dragging of files is a nice feature. So now I am back to Multiplicity and BeyondShare, two programs instead of share mouse. But they at least work as advertised, on my systems.

Thanks. I am glad my posts made it here now, and thank you for the response. There is probably something specific to my desktop system, as I get similar problem with (of all things!) Skype. Maybe too much customization on my part.

HJ B Using this program on two ms windows 8 64bit computers. There is no explicit statement in the materials that says this program supports Windows 8.

1. Move to edge of screen is not a sufficiently controllable feature. In normal course, on a busing computer, one has to be more alert to the position of the cursor in order to avoid shift to another computer. That is easier said than done. Also, if one moves toward the close window (X) button, it is easy to overshoot and find oneself on the the other computer. Also, in windows 8, the right side of the monitor is the means by which one gets to the windows 8 basic system controls.

2. I would, nevertheless, like this program if I could disable to mouse-window edge control, and use only a key combination to achieve the same result. However, nothing I have read in the sort of manual or on the company website tells me how to disable the window edge control without also disabling the key combination. In addition, I have tried to create key combination controls on both computers, and the selected key combinations produce no result, whatsoover. Perhaps the program is not compatible with Windows 8

Steve Glass I would like to use ShareMouse at my office between my work PC and my personal laptop over our office`s small network. In order to successfully use ShareMouse, do I need to have admin rights on my work PC? If so (and I do not have such rights) can I instead run the program on my work PC from a USB flash drive in order to bypass not having admin rights?

Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter.
