Welcome to the Mouse Manager home page! Since the middle of 2010, Mouse Manager has been making mice more useful. How? By letting you control what the extra buttons on your mouse do.

Most mice today have five Buttons: Left, Right, Wheel, and two more which usually are functionally the same as hitting the Back or Forward Buttons. Some games call these buttons Mouse 4 and Mouse 5. Mouse Manager takes advantage of the general disuse of these two extra buttons by letting you reconfigure what happens when you press them. Namely, it allows you to set these buttons to any keyboard key or series of keys you choose. So, if you set the Fifth Button to the letters H, E, L, L, and O, every time you press the Fifth Button on your mouse, your computer will think you typed "hello" on the keyboard.

Each set of replacement commands, or macro instructions, for the Fourth and Fifth mouse Buttons are stored in a profile, and each profile can be enabled through the handy Tray icon. Want to assign profiles to specific applications? Try Advanced Mouse Manager

The interface of Mouse Manager is extremely simple. Most of the time, you probably won't even pay attention to it after you've configured it, but the Tray icon will always be there in case you want to toggle a profile or turn off the program for a moment. The actual interface is opened with a single left-click on the Tray icon, which contains three simple tabs: Settings, Profiles, and About. The Settings tab is fairly simple: The top checkbox, labeled "Enable Mouse Manager" simply turns the functionality of the program on or off without having to stop and restart the program. If you ever need to go back to the normal use of your mouse, you can just uncheck this box and hit the "Save" button. Below that is the all-important "Start with Windows" checkbox: chances are you'll want this checked so you don't have to open Mouse Manager yourself every time your computer starts.

The Profiles tab is where the "meat" of Mouse Manager resides, containing another deceptively simple interface. To create a new profile, simply hit the "Add" button. A new profile will appear in the Profile List at the top, and you'll be able to begin setting up the profile immediately. First, click in the textbox marked as "Mouse Button 4" and hit the keyboard key or series of keys you want to occur when you press the Fourth mouse Button. If you want to disable the Fourth mouse Button entirely, just hit the "X" button next to the textbox; the mouse button will do nothing when pressed. Make your selections the same way for "Mouse Button 5" to assign commands to the Fifth mouse Button. When you've set the profile up the way you want, simply hit the "Save" button and close the Mouse Manager window.

You may have noticed that each profile in the Profile List has a checkbox next to it. This checkbox lets you choose between the profiles you create. The same list is available through the Tray icon via the right-click menu: simply open the "Profiles" menu item and all of the profiles you've made will be listed. Click on one of these menu items to choose profile you want to use, or click "No Profile" to turn all profiles off.

 I sorta don't think so. Mouse click emulation is way different from keyboard. It would likely add cursor stuttering and possibly cause major lag, clicks getting "stuck", and other weird and unwanted behavior.

 It works for some applications (Notepad, Thunderbird, browsers, etc), but not the ones I need (Starcraft 2). Any idea why? I tried other similar apps, and I get the very same issue with all of them. Using windows 7 Ultimate.

 Please check your System Tray (next to the clock) for an icon that looks like a white mouse. It may be hidden from the main Tray icons behind an arrow. You can access Mouse Manager's interface by left-clicking on the icon once or right-clicking and selecting "Management...". The right-click menu also provides access to different profiles quickly for your convenience.
