Windows 7: Mouse Scrolling Program

Mouse Scrolling Program

I'm looking for a 64-bit compatible mouse button scrolling program that does Adobe Acrobat style grab and drag to scroll. Simulating scrollbar dragging, except anywhere within a window, instead of having to actually grab the scroll bar button.

Programs I've tried:
Grab and Drag - the absolute best. It can do an exact one-to-one simulation of the scroll bar!! [just a FireFox add-on]

MouseIMP Pro Live! - what I used to use, works smoothly. Loved it on 32-bit XP doesn't work in x64 [free but no longer developed]

Pointix Scroll++
- x64 compatible, good program but performs exactly like a scroll wheel (I already have scroll wheels on my mice). [old pay program, now abandonware]

Scroll Navigator - x64 compatible, very buggy, mouse cursor inadvertently jumps over to the scroll bar plus it interferes with middle/right-clicks depending on which button you choose. [modern pay program]

MoScroll - x64 compatible, can only use right-click button, can't adjust scrolling rate & operation not the smoothest. [free but no longer developed]

Various extensions for Google Chrome, [they're only extensions]

No, pushing the middle button in explorer doesn't do diddly .

Some programs like word/excel give a similar type of function with the four-arrow drag lock and maybe you have a mouse with that built-in function, but that's still not what I'm talking about.

Just open a PDF file in Adobe Acrobat, choose the hand tool and use your mouse left-click button to drag up and down. That's the easiest way to see exactly what I'm talking about. You can also try any of the programs in the OP, most are free .

You could try this AHK script. It claims to work similar to Adobe action:

DragToScroll.ahk - Scroll via click-drag with momentum

Thanks, I'll check that out. It sounds a lot like the Grab & Drag extension (my favorite implementation of this function ) from a quick glimpse at the web page.

Cool. If you're that enthusiastic maybe I'll snap up the script myself.

Yeah it's more responsive and feels quicker than the scroll wheel (+ any other scrolling options) when done properly.
