Tips for Windowed Games

< Back

If you like to have your game displayed in a window instead of full-screen, you need to ensure the ControlMyJoystick sends it’s commands (keystrokes, mouse movements and clicks) to the game window and not some other window such as your web browser.  You can use Profile App Targets to accomplish this.

Note: Once you have set the target app and enabled targets, all ControlMyJoystick commands will be sent to the target window.  For easy testing, open Notepad and set it as the target.

To set an app target
– Right-click on the active profile to bring up the popup menu.  Put a check-mark beside ‘Enable Targets’.  Now we just need to define the target.
– On the same menu, select Edit Target.  A window will appear where you need to select the name of the window that you want to receive the commands.

That’s it.  All configured and ready to go.

Check out the tutorial video below to see how it is done.
