MouseButtonPointer is a lightweight piece of software that enables you to visualize the mouse pointer along with other various button combinations from your keyboard.

The program does not require installation, but rather you can start using it as soon as you decompress the archive in the desired location on your hard drive. The app does not come with an interface, but rather includes a small mouse-shaped image that highlights the buttons that are pressed.

It is worth mentioning that the tool does not work with mice alone but also displays when the Control, Alt and Shift keys are pressed on your computer. Depending on your needs and preferences, you can configure the app to make the UI barely visible or without any transparency. At the same time, you can change the size of the image, enable it to follow the mouse pointer and keep it hidden until it is clicked from the Settings window.

The application can come in handy if you are regularly making tutorials where you are explaining users how to troubleshoot various aspects or where it is necessary they preview the buttons that are pushed. At the same time, the tool can help you determine whether the buttons and the scrolling wheel are working properly on your mouse.

Then again, you should bear in mind that the program works with regular mice and hence, it may not be a suitable choice for a gaming mouse that includes several other buttons. Therefore, you may need to try out other third-party tools to test more advanced mice.

Irrespective of whether you want to view the buttons and keys that you press when you are performing various tasks or perhaps creating a tutorial and need viewers to learn the exact presses, MouseButtonPointer could come in handy.
