Getting a joystick’s path in Windows

Posted on

Problem :

On Linux, I can access my joystick with the following path: /dev/input/js0

Is there a similar way I can access my joystick on Windows?

Solution :

It might be accessible under the \?Device tree, check with WinObj. However, not all Windows APIs are able to access “files” under \. and \?, so this won’t help much.

AutoHotkey can access the joystick which you can use to trigger keyboard shortcuts and macros etc.
