I'm going to go down memory lane here... On windows 3.1 (!) we bought the shareware "squeaky mouse" - it did several things that are now taken for granted
- had a cute dancing mouse icon (ok, that is not nowadays taken for granted but if you wanted one there are many ways. PS:"the squeaky mouse dance" is still a family staple)
- move cursor to buttons and popups (not as friendly as moving the dialog to the cursor, I'll admit)
- fast scroll
- recycling bin (was "cheek pouch")
- jump by letter in selection lists and menus
I still have the executable here and must have the reg code somewhere, but I am afraid it doesnt fully work - on XP it only shows on the taskbar, makes noise, and works with any old apps one might run - for example it will move the cursor between the task bar and its option windows. Which is kind of an amazing sign of backwards compatibility... It does still squeak and now and then you catch a glimpse of a mouse running...
