AlwaysMouseWheel 3.24
Scroll any window, no need to select it first

If you need to scroll an application window on a PC then spinning the mouse wheel is probably the simplest route. This only works on the foreground window, though, the one where you're currently working. And so if you want to scroll some other window, you must click it first.

AlwaysMouseWheel is a tiny portable tool which changes all this. Once running, you can switch to and scroll any window just by moving the mouse cursor over it, and spinning the wheel - no extra click required.

While this is plainly a very small enhancement, if you regularly work with lots of open applications then it really can make your life a little easier (which is probably why some Linux distros support the same functionality).

There is also one important configuration option. By default AlwaysMouseWheel performs two steps when you spin the mouse wheel; it switches to the window under the mouse cursor, then scrolls it. But if you check "Just forwarding the Wheel command", the first step is dropped. It just scrolls the window you're pointing at, without bringing it to the foreground first.

Verdict:

It may only save one click per operation, but AlwaysMouseWheel still makes it easier and more natural to switch between and scroll multiple application windows

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
