|UltraMouse User Guide|
What is UltraMouse and what can it do for you?
We use the mouse anytime when we are using a computer. Therefore, anything that makes the mouse easier to use can help users a lot. If we can simplify the operations that we need to do thousands of times every day, we will benefit from less movement of the hands and eyes, and to a great extent avoid computer stress.
UltraMouse was designed to accomplish this. By manipulating the mouse in different ways, UltraMouse can perform over 20 different actions. This ability to attach significance to hand movements make operating the computer faster, easier and more convenient.
How does UltraMouse work?
UltraMouse can recognize more than 20 mouse actions as the Activations. An activation is something that the mouse can do, such as a button click, that causes something else (a Function) to happen. Users can set one or more Functions to happen as the result of an Activation. When these Activations occur, UltraMouse can perform the corresponding functions. For instance, with UltraMouse running, if you move the mouse cursor to the bottom-left corner of screen, the default Function is to open the Start Menu. If you press the left mouse button then click the right mouse button, the default Function is to maximize/restore the window under the mouse cursor.
Defining an Item
Each UltraMouse Item must contain one Activation and one Function. When the user causes the Activation to occur with the mouse, the specified Function will be triggered.
After UltraMouse is installed on your computer, there will be more than ten default Items. Click the UltraMouse icon in the system tray (on the task bar, opposite the Start Menu) and the option window will appear. In the Mouse Action page, which lists the Items, user may create an Item by clicking the New button, or modify an Item by double-clicking it.
In the Item Definition dialog-box, choose an Activation from the dropdown-list of Activation types. (The dropdown-list shows tips while the mouse is over each entry.) Then select a Function for this Item, which may be a Shortkey (simulated keystroke input), Launch File (open a file) or Internal (a pre-defined function).
UltraMouse has the unique feature of associating a rule with a Window Title. That is, an item is triggered or not depending on the title of the foreground application. For instance, users can specify an Activation in Internet Explorer to open a new window, whereas the same Activation is defined to open a file in Notepad. Simply enter the title in the Specify the Title Rule dialog box.
After an Item is defined, you will notice that the first thing on each line of the Mouse Action tab is a Check Box. If the Check Box of the Item is checked, the Item is enabled. Otherwise, it is disabled. This will allow you to experiment with similar items without deleting them.
The window under the mouse cursor will be made the focus after performing the Activations following an asterisk (*)

How to implement more than one function from one Activation
User can define 2 or more items with the same Activation. These items will be launched in the order in which they are inserted. For example, if an item is Left+Right Click to maximize a window, and the next item is Left+Right Click to sound a beep, then after performing Left+Right Click, the foreground window will be maximized and the system will sound a beep.
Many users would like to assign a double-click to the middle mouse button. To do this, select Click - MiddleButton as the Activation, and Mouse: Click Left Button in the Function dialog boxes. Then, do the same with the next Item. When the middle-button of the mouse is pressed, the system will see a double-click.
Why doesn't my Item work?
There are 4 possibilities:
