ShareMouse is an easy-to-use application that allows you to remotely control two or more computers at the same time with the same mouse and keyboard. Besides that, you can drag and drop files and synchronize the clipboard among your computers.

To operate the program you just need to install the application on each computer that you want to control remotely. You can also configure the Windows firewall and install the application as a Windows service for UAC support (User Account Control). The advantage is that each computer where the program is installed can remotely control the others.

Another advantage is that the program automatically detects when the program is installed on another computer, so you just move the mouse into the direction of the other monitor to remotely control the other computer. If the direction is the opposite, you can open the Monitor Manager and drag the monitor to the correct position. By default the inactive monitors are dimmed.

In the Settings window you can adjust different parameters. You can use hotkeys to quickly jump to the other monitor(s); change the lightness of the inactive monitors; set a panic hot key; set a UDP port for the program's communication; add a password for accessing the remote computers; and encrypt the network traffic to avoid intrusions - this option may slow down the performance.
