    "almost awesome"

    January 29, 2014  |   By Turyco

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    A regular old wireless laser notebook mouse turns into a gaming mouse (I get 35 commands out of 7 buttons using hotkeys, or 45 if I include scroll up and down). I also use it a lot for Acrobat Pro to map highlighting and editing tools for reviewing academic articles.

    Cons

    Bug with MS Word where it first causes pc to type whatever button is being pressed repeatedly, and then crashes. I don't even have an X-Mouse profile for Word, really not sure why this happens. Sticky hotkeys sometimes get activated for no reason. Mapping doesn't work for some games with launchers (the buttons get mapped to the launcher not the game).

    Summary

    Version 2.6 has been out for a while now on the publisher's website. Definitely knocks the socks off most native software. Really makes your mouse much more versatile, but it's still buggy and I'm looking for an alternative. BTW, for those complaining of bloatware, check again it may well be C|NET's not X-Mouse.

    "Simple to pick up. A must have for any PC owner."

    September 25, 2013  |   By MattyJackman

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    Simple
    Powerful
    Think of about 10 more pros of your own, chances are they are true of this product.
    IT'S FREE!

    Cons

    Literally, none, and I don't say that often.

    Summary

    An incredible piece of software, I have multiple profiles for gaming, work, browsing etc. It is one of the first things I download on a new PC. This little guy is a software partner for life.

    "Fantastic, simple, yet flexible"

    July 18, 2013  |   By BrerBunny

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    This program is great, it allows you to tweak your mouse in all sorts of ways and also allows you to save 5 profiles, which is fantastic if you also use your mouse for gaming.

    Cons

    I would say the only con I found is that page up and page down are not apparent in the drop down lists for mouse buttons, but you can still set them with the simulated keys option.

    Summary

    Great and simple to use, expanding the flexibility of your mouse.

    "Installs lots of adware"

    May 24, 2013  |   By sdjaber

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    I hope it's worth the time it took to uninstall all the adware and hijacks.

    Cons

    I tried to be careful to NOT click the "OK to install software buttons," but even so it installed something called We care, Sweet packs, and Top arcade hits, as well as changing my browser search default and home page. Be warned that you will have to uninstall all of these, which took me 15-20 minutes because it kept being difficult. I hoped using CNet would make this less of a problem, but apparently they like to mess with your computer, too.

    "Works perfectly on Win8"

    January 14, 2013  |   By sfazen

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    All I really needed was my center button to work as a back button since my Logitech software crapped out and won't reinstall properly. I just don't have time to figure out why it is not working, but now I don't need to because X-Mouse does the job.

    Cons

    none that I can think of.

    "Very useful"

    October 18, 2012  |   By jamestodd96

    Version: X-Mouse Button Control 2.5

    Pros

    I downloaded this program because I had to upgrade to System 7 when I got a new computer. My older wireless keyboard and mouse from Microsoft worked but the Intellimpouse program didn't. X-mouse fills the gap and more

    Cons

    none that I hve found yet
