With a name that's quite obvious once you realize what it does, JoyToKey is a type of joystick emulator, in other words a program that converts a joystick into a keyboard or mouse. This means that the user can use joysticks in programs that don`t usually support this type of control. As unusual as it seems, the program`s authors assure us that the joystick will even work with Word and Excel.
These are some of the characteristics of JoyToKey: you can configure a maximum of 16 joysticks, multiple configuration files, automatic firing buttons, mouse emulation (including the wheel) mouse movement adjustment functions, etc. Thus you can create multiple configuration files to switch across different key/mouse assignments.
In JoyToKey to create a new configuration, just click on Create, choose the joystick button from a list and click on Enter, as the configuration file (CFG) is a normal text file. This program is very easy to download, install and then use, through its friendly and intuitive user interface. You don't need any technical experience at all to get the most out of it.
So there you have it. If you want to convert your joystick into a keyboard or mouse, then you need a program like this JoyToKey. And best of all is that you can download it for free! What are you waiting for?
