This allows you to select which joystick you want to configure.

Block Keys

When a key is pressed on the keyboard without the block keys option set Windows will register a key press as well as joystick input the key is assigned to. To block the keyboard input turn this option on and the key input will not reach a Windows application. Only key inputs that are assigned to joystick input will be blocked.

Launch on Startup

This allows VJoy to start when Windows is launched.

Open / Save Ini

This allows you to load and save configuration files used in VJoy.


VJoy is designed to run in the Icon Tray. When you close the configuration window it will minimize to the Icon Tray. To exit VJoy and remove it from memory, either right-click the joystick icon in the Icon Tray and select Close or use the [X] button and accept the dialog prompt to close.

Command Line Options

VJoy supports command line arguments sent to it either while running from the Icon Tray or as a stand-alone application. Sending command line arguments allows you to configure VJoy for application specific tasks. You can also send commands to toggle options or close VJoy.
