    Thanks!! – this works and runs on my locked-down work laptop; the other solutions (macros or using regedit) are blocked. Hooray!

    Any chance of updating this .exe to allow a higher #MaxHotKeysPerInterval or a lower #HotKeyInterval? I’m getting warning dialogue boxes every once in a while when I scroll too aggressively.

    Here’s the relevant documentation:

    I would install AutoHotKey and my own script, but my work computer is unfortunately locked down by IT. Your .exe works like a charm, so I’m hoping it can easily be updated!

    Awesome utility. Thanks man.

    Wow, always looked for that program!

    I use Windows 8 Pro, and noticed only one error while using Internet Explorer, in moving the scroll bar below. Much remains, but very little to be perfect!

    Thank you and congratulations!

  5. is there a way to get the scroll effect where the window continues to scroll on based on the speed you spun the scroll wheel, like the mac using the trackpad

    Works on Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Yay!

      Yes it does, I’m using it on my Windows 8 machine. It fails from time to time though, and has to be “restarted” manually. And it doesn’t work in things like Task Manager.

    I think Mooga’s problem was due to a logitech mouse with freewheel scrolling. srry bout the bump, but i know people are still migrating to natural scroll
