WizMouse – awesome freeware speeds up mouse scrolling majestically


WizMouse is one of those MUST HAVE freeware Windows utilities that once used can never be uninstalled. The software automatically focuses any window or pane on your desktop ready for mouse wheel scrolling by hovering over it. No clicking needed.

Huh? I hear you say. Well think this. You know how in your email client you need to click on a pane to grab focus in order to scroll with the mouse wheel? Or how you have to click on an open background window to scroll up or down to see something when you’re working on a foreground document? Well now you don’t.


Just hover the cursor over the pane or window and the mouse wheel will be live, so you can scroll as you need. It sounds really silly, but it’s blindingly useful and if you’re a power user it really really makes life so much smoother. And smooth, silky is the goal when you’re really trying to get stuff done on a computer, right? So here’s the word –  grab this immediately! And leave the developer a donation to say thanks. He deserves it!

 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.
