Basic Features of JoyToKey

Main Window

You can create multiple profiles in the left panel. Right panel shows the button-key assignments for the selected profile.

In the example below,

  • Sticks are assigned to arrow keys
  • When "Button 1" is pressed, key input "X" will be emulated

Button Assignment Window

For each joystick button, you can assign a keyboard input or a mouse input. For keyboard emulation, it can be a single keyboard input (e.g. 'X' key in the example below), or it can be a combination of multiple keys like Alt+F4, or it can be a special purpose key such as "PRINT SCREEN" key. Similarly, mouse emulation mode will enable you to assign mouse cursor movement, or wheel movement, or left/middle/right click.
