Spot on the Mouse shows visual representation of all the mouse and keyboard action on your computer screen. It shows a large circle or cross-hair whenever you move your mouse to show the position of the mouse cursor.

If you enable Mouse-Image feature, then instead of the concentric circles, a real mouse image is used as mouse-click and mouse-wheel action indicator. You can choose the mouse image to be white or black. The Halo feature shows a filled circle to indicate the position of the mouse pointer. The Cross-Hair will indicate the position of the cursor on your screen using large cross-hair. You can customize the color of both the halo and the large cross-hair.

The Keyboard feature can be used to indicate keyboard keys. By default it works only for the modifier keys (Ctrl, Shift, and Alt), but you can change the settings to include all the keyboard keys or a special set of keys. When you press any of these keys, a small key icon appears on the screen near the mouse cursor itself.
