The SteadyMouse free edition (v1) is over ten years old. After a multi-year effort and a few thousand hours, the new commercial version is available with many advanced features, bug-fixes, and improvements for you. After you try the free version further down, if you want to go even further, or wish to avoid all of the old nuisance bugs, you are invited to return and purchase the upgrade to SteadyMouse 2. There's a 30 day money back guarantee so all the risk is on us while you take it for a spin.

In any event, you'll find the free version on this page below. It's not going anywhere, since it's good enough for some and not everyone can afford the commercial upgrade. Whichever you go with, may you leave this site in better shape than you arrived.

SteadyMouse - Free Versions from 2005 to 2006

WARNING: Regarding bugs in the original free version

No need to report bugs in the free version. These issues are all fixed in SteadyMouse 2 and later.

The free version is old and has some known issues. Please be aware that it does NOT always work on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 and Vista. As a precaution, during installation do not set SteadyMouse to start automatically with Windows. If the cursor freezes or disappears, you can reboot to get back to normal.

There's a possible workaround for aspects of this if you read through the troubleshooting guide. This guide was written for SteadyMouse 2 (and later), but incidentally helps in mitigating some issues with the free version.
