This is the only app on Windows that works perfectly for me. Carnac has bugs supporting multiple monitor and has stopped maintaining for years. KeycastOW has observable lagging in showing mouse click ripples in open-source version, and the latest version is not free. Other alternatives has ugly UI.

Great FLOSS software that does what it says it does very well. Used it for some game debugging and figured out my problem immediately!

The only really free SW I found so far for visualizing mouse clicking and showing pressed keys on keyboard at the same time, which I was needed for my presentation videos :)
