X-Mouse Button Control 2.17
X-Mouse Button Control is a free tool for Windows that allows you to re-configure and expand the capabilities of your mouse.


XMouse Button Control (XMBC) allows you to create application and window specific profiles. This in turn, allows you to re-configure your mouse behaviour for individual applications or windows. For each profile you can also configure up to 5 'layers' of different button configurations which you can switch between using hot-keys or mouse buttons.

By default, profiles are automatically activated as the mouse moves over the defined window or application.
This has many uses, for example:

Changing the behaviour of the mouse over certain windows, such as making the mouse wheel change volume when hovering over the system tray or you-tube video.
In games which do not natively support the extended, 4th and 5th mouse buttons, you can map keys to each button.

XMBC allows you to change the behaviour of the mouse buttons and scroll wheel. The extensive list of functions available to map to your mouse buttons includes options such as:

Send any keys using the 'simulated keystrokes' editor
Launch any windows application
Clipboard control (Copy/Cut/Paste)
Media control (Play/Pause/Stop/Volume/Mute etc.)
Capture screen (or active window) image to clipboard
Click-Drag [Sticky buttons/keys]
Click-Drag [Sticky buttons/keys]
Various support for specific Windows operating systems, such as Flip3D in Vista, ModernUI/Metro in Windows 8 and Virtual Desktops in Windows 10!
And much, much more!

Installation/Upgrade Information:

The installer will automatically close an existing instance of XMBC so you do not need to close or un-install an old version before installing the latest.

XMouse Button Control is configured to run automatically when you log on to Windows.
This can be changed using MSConfig or the start-up tab in Task Manager on Windows 8 or later.


A mouse and driver that supports 5 buttons.
NOTE: If your mouse has 5 buttons but the 4th and 5th buttons don't do anything in by default - then XMBC may not be for you. This software relies on the driver to send the default 4th and 5th mouse button messages which usually default to BACK/NEXT in browsers and other programs. Having said that you can still remap the standard 2 buttons and scroll wheel.
A compatible version of Microsoft Windows.
X-Mouse Button Control supports all 32bit (x86) and 64bit (x64) editions of Windows from Windows XP to 10, including Windows Server editions!
