How to Use Mouse Scroll Wheel in Inactive Windows
Mouse Scroll Wheel, the little wheel in the center of the two mouse buttons is a blessing when it comes to dealing with vertically oriented websites and applications. It becomes very convenient to just scroll up and down without having to go the scroll bar on the right side of your window.
But, have you ever got annoyed when you have to click on an inactive window to make it active, before you can use that mouse wheel in it. I know that it is a trivial thing, and just a matter of one single click, which you have to do in order to make that window active and use the mouse wheel.
There is a small freeware utility, which just let you get rid of this requirement of clicking on the inactive window first.
WizMouse is a mouse enhancement utility that makes your mouse wheel work on the window currently under the mouse pointer, instead of the currently focused window. This means you no longer have to click on a window before being able to scroll it with the mouse wheel. This is a far more comfortable and practical way to make use of the mouse wheel.
WizMouse can also optionally enable the mouse wheel in applications that don’t support it. It does this by translating mouse wheel commands into scroll bar commands that all applications can understand and process.
