    I've hooked up two mice to my computer before, and then both mice move the same cursor. Pretty useless.

    Is there any way, or program, to make two cursors so one mouse controls one cursor and another mouse controls another cursor?

    Wow are you so good and ambidextrous that you could handle two cursors???!!!

    The only thing i could imagine be able to work that -
    is some kind of split screen system
    or
    making the usb ports seperate from each other -cause if you put in 2 mouse it only recognizes the first one.
    or
    something like two Seperate entire Windows running at the same time (in split screen)

    i have no clue - post if you find a solution

    Everything is possible - this probably hasnt been made yet.
    on a simple level - if you can have two controllers in a game - and then if u imagine windows as a game(which it is).....i cant program so cant help
    but i can imagine alot of reasons why this would could be benificial (but not right now) it should nt be to complex to make.
    What controls the cursor? How to make windows seperate 2 mice+usb ports?

    On a Laptop- it recognizes the mouse and the mouse pady thing at the same time... thats one step

    I know it's kinda useless but just wanted to know how to do it. lol.

    I have lots of mice. I can plug in a ps2 or serial one, start computer, then plug in usb one and then both of them control the one cursor. I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to make a second cursor for one of the mice.


    Peat, im reading your link now.
