JoyToKey  enables PC game controllers to emulate the keyboard and mouse input, so that windows applications and web games can be controlled with your joysticks. Whenever buttons and sticks are pressed on the controllers, JoyToKey converts them into keyboard strokes and/or mouse movements so that the target application will work as if a real keyboard and a mouse were used.

  • Experimental support for a "Share" button on the XBox Series X/S controller when it's connected over Bluetooth Wireless.By default, Windows doesn't seem to recognize the newly introduced "Share" button on XBox Series X/S controller when it's connected over Bluetooth Wireless. Even in that case, you may be able to use a "Share" button through JoyToKey, by enabling the experimental mode from menu "Settings" -> "Preferences", and change "Input device types" to "Experimental Logic (Beta)".

  • Improved the automatic detection when an additional joystick is connected.
