Mac2Win: Making the scroll wheel scroll like OSX

To kick-start my mac2window transition series i’ll be talking about a feature that most full time OSX users use but probebly dont realise its not in windows. Scrolling the mouse wheel on OSX makes the window under the mouse scroll. However in windows this doesn’t happen. Instead it makes the window/view with the keyboard focus scroll. I have found this to be very frustrating indeed!

To make the scroll focus follow your mouse pointer, there is a windows plugin/utility called WizMouse. Incase you come across any unexpected behavior in your applications, you can easily disable the plugin from the system tray. Simple enough. What is the catch?.. Ummm… nothing!… Its even FREE!… w00t!
