Great! Must have! Just would be nice to have more options for keys combinations. Thanks.

AlwaysMouseWheel allows you to scroll (via mouse wheel) any window under the mouse, even if that window is not in the foreground. This is especially useful when referencing multiple windows without losing focus on the primary window (e.g. taking notes).

@boby_toss: No, I'm not the developer and I'm not gonna lie, I just realized that both my Nick and the WizMouse app start with WIZ, that's a funny coincidence :) There's another freeware app called MouseHunter it's a good one too.

1. Who the fxxk is boby?
2. WizKey is by the same developer... a remarkable coincidence, is it not?
3 WizMouse writes to the registry.

Win 10 now includes this by default, for people who have upgraded and still thought they had to use this app :)

  • Released on 5 Mar 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.

X-Mouse Button Control v2.15 Updated

billon on 8 Feb 2017
  • 7MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Feb 2017
  • 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.

Checker on 2015-10-19 11:46

v2.12.1 has a "working" EXE again.

skwire, you are too quick releasing your apps, its better you thoroughly test them first.

Napiophelios on 2013-06-07 21:58

Seems to work fine on WinXPSP2

no error messages or oversized feilds in the gui (like your screengrabs indicate)
what OS you using Ganmyde?

webfork on 2013-12-26 21:09

Got a new keyboard for my system the other day and once again this program came through for me to make the pause/play button work with VLC and Foobar. Win.
