    "Useless For 2-Screen Setup"

    October 16, 2014  |   By MrNewsMedia

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Lightweight, installs easily (from Antibody Software site, NOT cnet), realatively straightforward.

    Cons

    Does absolutely nothing on my 2-screen (extended, not cloned) set-up on Win 8.1. Worked when open windows were all on the same screen, but that's why I use two monitors. WizMouse did NOT work when windows were open on the other screen.

    Summary

    Waste of time. Could save you a few parsecs and a click or two (out of billions). Don't bother.

    "Nifty Utility"

    June 12, 2014  |   By That_Guy_in_CB

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Does exactly what it's supposed to.

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Summary

    This handy utility installed easily and lets me scroll any open window without changing the focus. Streamlines my work procedures. I particularly like the option of reverse scrolling that Mac uses.

    "more practical"

    May 14, 2013  |   By mido_x

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    The program runs smooth and easy.
    I believe ut will be more useful when one is accustomed to use it.
    It saves time and has no adversary effects.

    Cons

    None is all I can say

    Summary

    Good

    "Does what it does perfectly"

    May 14, 2013  |   By DaDreamWizard

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Been using this since 2009. Saves clicks, scrolling background windows never fails to make me think why it's not built in to a windows OS.

    Cons

    Deducted 1/2 star for that bogus large menu. Total overkill and detracts from the true intelligence of a utility as this.

    Summary

    Takes zilch for space, no ram guzzler, won't impede your start up.

    There is another like this from SoftwareOK that I haven't tried, but am a fan of their software.

    "A Must-Have For Windows"

    April 24, 2013  |   By BearPuppy

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    I'm sorry to see this rated as only "good" as I can't compute without this wonderful piece of software! Whether you are simply scrolling within a window, or cutting across sub-windows, this software gives you full functionality to your scroll wheel

    Cons

    Absolutely none.

    Summary

    This should be built into Windows.

    "Works as advertized"

    April 14, 2013  |   By hk2000

    Version: WizMouse 1.6.0.2

    Pros

    Works very well. I haven't experienced any issues with it interfering with other software. I can remote into my other computers and the mouse switches to the remote computer when you move to the remote display. it's really perfect.

    Cons

    None what so ever.

    Summary

    Here's the scenario that got me to use this tool: You're watching a video or listening to a radio program, an obnoxious commercial comes on, you hit mute on the volume mixer and go back to the webpage you were on and try to scroll down, but instead you reactivate the annoying commercial sound you just muted because you forgot to click before scrolling. I do this a lot, and for that this program is god sent for me.
