  • Suggested by risk

X-Mouse Button Control (XMBC) allows you to set a variety of controls for your mouse. For example, you can set a button copy, paste, undo, volume up/down, forward-backward (in browser), scrolling background windows, and many more.

Changes can be application-specific, meaning simply changing applications will automatically swap mouse controls, but they can also be user-managed and based on a hot-key. So your mouse can work as basic volume controls for your music player as well as back and forward buttons for your browser.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: A mouse and driver that supports 5 buttons (e.g. Windows default mouse driver).
Stealth: ? No. Creates empty registry key.
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Depending on your operating system, choose the 32bit (x86) or 64bit (x64) folder (if you're not sure, go with the 32bit)
  3. Launch XMouseButtonControl.exe

Must have indeed!

@billon: There is no "working" EXE file within the 32bit (x86) folder. That's why I presently didn't update to v2.12.

v2.12.1 has a "working" EXE again.

lintalist on 10 Jun 2017
  • 895KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by Jon Pajela

AutoHotkey is a powerful automation and scripting tool with an option to export to a self-contained executable. Possible uses include assigning the hotkey "Ctrl-Alt-F" to launch Firefox, making abbreviations expand to their full definition as you type them, or saving time by setting the computer to auto-click a confirmation screen.

The program can create entire applications and has been used to create many hosted here on PortableFreeware including 7plus, WallPaper Randomizer, Gridy and many more.

Note: Pulover's Macro Creator can be used as a macro recorder and includes an "Export to AHK" function.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if you download the installer and extract, you get all the exes (32/64 unicode and ansi), Window Spy, the help chm, a template and the ahk2exe compiler.

QiPress Lite v1.071 Updated

billon on 10 Jun 2017
  • 917KB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by billon

QiPress is a monitor for the system keyboard and mouse, describing activity in a small, semi-transparent black box in the corner of your screen. Ideal for presentations, screencasts, and program howtos, the program can also behave as a diagnosis tool for keyboard problems, describe unlabeled keys, or provide feedback show when an application is ignoring input.

Settings are available to ignore key-sets to exclude for example mouse or keypad activity, as well as window color, transparency, fade-out, and more.

The program is stealth again.

@utilfreak

Thank you.

Also, QiPress triggers a User Account Control (UAC) prompt. What does it need it for?

utilfreak on 2015-06-03 16:09

@I am Baas
Thank you for your note, I wasn't aware of it as I have set UAC to the lowest level. QiPress 1.064 Build 6 will now trigger UAC only if it is running within:
a) C:\Program Files*\* OR
b) Root of a drive
This is generally required by programs that need to dynamically update their resources within those paths.

  • 32KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by donald

TinyTask is a small, simple mouse and keyboard macro recorder. Anything you do with the mouse or type on the keyboard while the program is running can be replayed as many times as you choose. Recordings can even be compiled into an executable file.

Notes:

  1. Recordings are not editable (perhaps in a theoretical v2).
  2. May not record mouse wheel movement on some mice.

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download tinytask.exe to a folder of your choice and launch.

Optionally, click the Tool icon on the right side of the window and choose "Remember Settings in .INI".

Issue: If the program does not record mouse clicks, restart.

For simple, repetitive tasks that you don't need a big program to fully automate, this can be a surprising time saver. Two caveats: 1. Do not touch the keyboard or mouse while the macro is running. 2. If you want to stop a process in the middle, hit ctrl+shift+alt+P. Very, very happy with it.

Ruby on 2011-02-15 18:56

Updated: Creation of ini is not needed as there's a setting in "Options" > 'Remember Settings in .INI'

stisev on 2017-04-22 07:06

I really love this app, but it doesn't come with multiline support. (You can only automate 1 line at a time and can't do paragraphs

I was forced to use a custom-version of Breevy that is 100% portable.
