"One of my favorites. I use it everywhere!"

October 17, 2012  |  By antonrykheer

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

- Scroll and it works. That simple!
- Adding additional classes that aren't initially recognised. That's what makes this app even better.
- It always works. On old and new operating systems.

Cons

None. Its perfect through simplicity

Summary

Do you ever have multiple windows open alongside eachother.. or overlapping.. or one in front of another.. or docked frames in the same parent window? But you use them all... and you want to just view any of those window or frame's hidden contents quick and easy without having to click on it before scrolling? If you're a developer and working with and IDE, this fits your description.

Use KatMouse. Take the mouse pointer anywhere on the screen and scroll and see how the hidden data displays as it should. No clicking and activating windows and frames first. Add inknown classes and custom controls by using the built in class spy.

"Golden Oldie still better even under W7-64"

September 24, 2012  |  By Frank1608

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

For certain Progs. (e.g. KMPlayer) Whizmouse kept failing rather frequently to also RAISE the scrolled background window.
Subsequent keystrokes therefore ended up 'outside' the Player...

Only scrolling or in the case of a Media Player typically Jump Forward/Backwards always performed without a hitch though.

Tried a few other similar utilities but all seem to be somewhat buggy (Win7-64 on Laptop with Touchpad & Logitech Mouse).

To my surprise this rather dated utility still works perfect under Win7-64 Ultimate.
Any troublesome Apps like again KMPLayer are quickly added under "classes" and problem is gone.
A previous reviewer citing issues with the Middle-Click did somehow overlook the assignment of the middle-click in the settings called "Wheel Button".... ;-)
Quick Fix for that.

Cons

None so far

Summary

Oldie but Goldi :-)

Updated on Sep 28, 2012

In the Desktop-Organizer 'Fences' this little App (or say myself) has met its Nemesis - any fix applied for Fences breaks most other Apps.

Whilst searching for solutions/more specific classes I came across a lesser known but recently updated tool from a ***. Dev. which -so far and a first- simply works without exception for all Apps.
No manual App-specific settings though.
Google for "Wheel Here 1.4.3" (current revision Sep.'12)

Updated on Mar 3, 2013

Update March 2013:
New Beta-version released in January 2013 (following file dates), fixed all my previous issues & works so far flawlessly with Win7-64.

"Ruined Middle Click"

June 14, 2011  |  By derpppp

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

Unfocused windows scrolling works

Cons

Rendered all other functions of middle click unusable

Summary

I found out about this from Lifehacker and made an account JUST to review this. It does what it says, and more. I could no longer middle click to close tabs, programs, or do ANYTHING other than scrolling with the scroll wheel.

I uninstalled this program and I recommend anyone else having this problem to download WizMouse. It works without these downsides for me.

"Works perfectly well"

January 09, 2011  |  By peterwirtth

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

As promised

Cons

non .............

Summary

Really improves the windows experience. So often a click to activate an application starts an unwanted process. That's over.

"Mmmhhh......"

November 26, 2010  |  By deltazero

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

Works almost as advertised.

Cons

No "set and forget application", see summary.

Summary

I had problems with multiple application: Firefox 3 and 4 Beta, FeedDemon 4 Beta ... There problems could be resolved by configuring them manually. The problem is that I always forget that the problem could be KatMouse... ;) Now trying Wizmouse.

"Works brilliantly with Windows 7!"

October 22, 2010  |  By themasterchief26

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

simple, free and does exactly what it claims, that is, makes it possible to scroll whichever window you mouse over without having to click to activate it first.

Cons

nothing yet

Summary

A must have app, especially for anybody that also uses Mac OS X, where this functionality is integrated into the operating system, and taken for granted until you encounter a machine where 'click to activate' is necessary. I expect Microsoft will catch up eventually and incorporate with functionality into Windows.

"Intuitive, efficient use of mouse!! --saves clicks"

December 02, 2009  |  By caakc0dwi

 |  Version: KatMouse 1.04

Pros

1. Simple to install, no instructions needed.
2. Saves unnecessary clicking to give Windows focus just to scroll down to view information
3. Consistent with Apple systems.

Cons

None yet after two weeks usage.

Summary

If you have many overlapping windows and simply like to scroll another window to get some information while typing in another window without actually changing the focus back and forth many times, this is the tool.

Surprising simple to install and use, no instructions needed nor wanted.

Saves clicks--we all only have a given number of clicks before we pass out!

I am told this is how the Apples OS X works with mouse. Why isn't this built into Windows? Perhaps I have done this unknowingly on the Mac platform and have been frustrated in Windows without knowing why. Now I know why, and feel an efficiency improvement has been made! Kudos to Katmouse, not MS.
