Wizmouse is a free utility that lets you scroll in any window by putting the mouse pointer over any open application instead of having to click to change the focus to a different window. No more clicking on a window before being able to scroll inside the window with the mouse wheel, saving you extra clicks and time.
Wizmouse is a small Windows program that makes your mouse wheel work on the window that's under the mouse pointer instead of the current active window. It might seem that having to click on a window to scroll in it isn't a big issue, but if you do much copying and pasting from program to program, have more than one window open and need to read or work in another, or use multiple monitors this little gem saves time and clicks. If you use it for a while you'll wonder what you ever did without it and why it isn't a native Windows function.
Wizmouse has a basic interface so it's easy to use and options are easy to configure. You can choose to enable or disable it, have it start with Windows, enable it for applications without mouse wheel support, and choose how many lines the mouse will scroll. Wizmouse is a little different from similar apps in that it can optionally enable the mouse wheel in applications that don't support it.
Wizmouse is a free utility that runs on 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7/8/10. It's a small download (551 KB) and is free of malware according to VirusTotal and both portable and installable versions are available for download.
