KatMouse is a simple software that can change the way Windows NT handles scrolling with the mouse wheel. It basically provides a way to customize the way the scroll wheel is utilized in Windows and adds scrolling support even in applications that seem to be somewhat resistant.
Three global settings are provided by KatMouse. The first is the default wheel scroll speed which is set to 3 lines at a time, the second the ability to scroll page-wise by pressing the wheel button and the left (down) or right (up) mouse button and finally the option to push down windows in the desktop Z-order with the Wheel button when the window is active.
Custom scroll settings can be defined for applications and classes. Applications have to be added by browsing to the application's executable while Classes are added by dragging and dropping files into the program window of KatMouse.
