You are a multi monitor user or a presenter who is forced to use different projectors? Ever fiddled around with your mouse because your cursor got stuck somewhere in between your screens?

MouseBeam is going to be your new best friend! It is a minimalistic, background application assuring your cursor is just one hotkey-press away: It beams your cursor to the desired screen for you.

It also moves your cursor to the next screen if it touches your screenedge (optional), assuring a reliable workflow. It enables you to connect your displays in a circle! (optional)

This can reduce your total mouse movement by more than half by beaming the cursor to the middle of your screen (optional).

If you have two or more displays, give it a try. Especially interesting for Video- / Audioeditors or developers using huge screen estate.


- Beams your mouse to the next screen (Optional)
- Beam your cursor to the exact screen you need it
- Connects all yours screens in circles (Continuity - Optional)
- If you approach the edge slowly, it won't interfere
- Beams either to the edge or right to the middle (Optional)
- Support for hot corners
- Autostart

If you have any suggestions, wishes or questions, don't hesitate to drop me an email.

Ratings and Reviews

Did just what I needed


Super simple tool. I really only needed it to bounce my mouse cursor to another monitor without having to move my mouse around. Jumps the mouse from screen to screen as needed and puts it right in the middle. So for $2 this solved an annoying problem. You would think that this would be something built into the Mac but maybe not. For the person who said it was a hoax, you need to click on type shortcut and make sure your mouse clicks again in the box and as you make your key selections, they will show up in the box. Save it and you’re done.

Awful experience


No Document at all. Not able to add any shortcut. I think this is a hoax application

If you have multiple monitors you should try this out


I have four monitors arranged in two rows and moving the cursor between them has always been frustrating.

MouseBeam is a great little app that does just what it claims.

My favorite capability is that it lets me move the cursor from monitor to monitor along the bottom edge of my screens even though my monitors are all different heights!
No more bumping against a wall at the corners. It’s worth it for this feature alone.

Thanks for a great app for those of us lucky enough to have more than one monitor attached to our Macs!
