SteadyMouse free edition is over ten years old! After a multi-year effort and a few thousand hours, a new commercial version is almost ready with all kinds of advanced features, fixes, and improvements for you. The price has even been set based on two years of surveyed user feedback, and you're welcome to check out the preview here. If you like the free version and want to go even further, the new release will be out shortly. Thank you all for your feedback and for hanging in there patiently. It has been incredibly fun making this happen for you. You'll still find the free version on this page below. It's not going anywhere, since I know not everyone can afford the commercial upgrade. Whichever you go with, may you leave this site in better shape than you arrived. I hope you enjoy!

We have liftoff!

Tremor Removal from Cursor Motion

Today I'm releasing SteadyMouse 2 to the world, and especially to all of you who asked over the years and patiently waited. I've put everything into this for you, and I know it's going to get many of you back on track. I can't wait for that part. Special thanks as well to my grandfather, Dr. James Gottemoller who started it all. This one's especially for you!

SteadyMouse - Free Versions from 2005 to 2006

(Please note that since the free versions are over a decade old, there's no need to report bugs anymore. These issues are all fixed in version 2 and later.)

WARNING: Regarding bugs in the original free version

The free version is old and has some known bugs. 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 is written for SteadyMouse 2 (and later), but incidentally helps in mitigating some issues with the free version.

NOTE: These issues are all fixed in SteadyMouse 2 and later.
