If you have a large monitor or even a dual-display set up, then you probably have lots of windows open at one time. Managing them all can be a pain, and constantly switching the window that is in focus can be a tremendous waste of time. Macs have the ability to scroll in an inactive window out of the box; for PCs, this is not the case. Instead, any time you want to scroll one of the windows, you need to make that window focus, scroll, and then move back to the window on which you are currently working. With Mouse Hunter, that issue is solved.

scroll inactive windows

Mouse Hunter makes it easy to scroll inactive Windows with minimal effort on your part. It makes it so you can scroll a window that is not running in the foreground simply by placing your cursor over it and activating your mouse’s scroll wheel. If you are reading from one screen and working in another, this helps you keep the important window in focus and move through the other windows with ease.


On first launch, the app will ask you to set it up to your liking. You can choose whether the program starts automatically when Windows starts, whether to start Mouse Hunter as disabled, and if the app should show the information balloon on start. It also allows you to tweak some settings about the way the app works once running. You can even enable horisontal scrolling by using the scroll wheel with Shift and Control.


  • Scroll through inactive Windows on a PC.
  • Control the settings for how the program works.
  • Runs silently in the system tray.
  • Works on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
