The humble mouse can do a lot more than just point and click, and X-Mouse Button Control intends to unlock its full potential. This free utility allows you to map new functions to mouse buttons. Not only can it assign each button new tasks, it can also make these context-dependent, so that a button's function in one piece of software may not be the same in another.

Getting picky about buttons

Using X-Mouse Button Control can be a little daunting at first: there are a lot of options, and the interface, although clean and easy to understand, doesn't hold your hand through the process of assigning them. What it lacks in ease, however, it makes up in versatility: you can create multiple profiles, each of which has its own set of functions. You can even create "layers" or sets of new commands within each profile, allowing you to use your mouse for different functions at different times.

Useful for advanced users

X-Mouse Button Control is a very powerful interface-customization tool for people who want to be able to perform a wide range of different functions with just a click of a button or tap of their scroll wheel. It might be a little intimidating for new users, but it more than makes up for it with its wealth of options.
