A utility that will enable the mouse wheel in Windows Explorer?



This is an image of what I want to enable in Windows Explorer, it is a feature in web browsers and some other programs but it doesn't seem to be available in Windows Explorer. I am wondering if there's a utility that will let you use this when pressing the mouse wheel.

While the mouse pointer is on a blank spot on the screen or window, try pressing down on the mouse wheel until you hear or feel a click.

Yes I did and all of the results were about the actual wheel of the mouse not working, nothing about that things which pops up in Firefox.

I did but it does nothing, is this a problem or have I got something disabled? I don't see anything about it in mouse settings.

Curious. I couldn't find anything in Windows or IE settings, either. One possibility is your mouse has its own driver and you have change your settings there. The other possibility is your wheel click is broken. An easy way to check that is to open a new tab in IE and try to wheel click on it. If the wheel click is working, that will delete the tab.

Mine doesn`t work in explorer, I don`t think it`s supposed to. But I don`t need it to anyway.

I thought it was only used for web pages or programs that need a lot of scrolling.

It works perfectly in any web browser.
