"scroll windows under the mouse cursor" doesn't work quite right.

The feature "Allow the mouse wheel to scroll windows under the mouse cursor that are not in focus" doesn't work quite right.

When I scroll in an unfocused application, it'll scroll the active pane rather than the pane my mouse cursor is over. For example, if I have a file explorer window open, but not focused, it may scroll the list of folders on the left rather than the list of files. This is what happens if the last thing I did in that window was select a folder.

An alternative that I've been using since before I discovered DisplayFusion, WizMouse, does what I expect when scrolling focused or unfocused windows... Whatever the mouse is over, that's what scrolls.

If this is working as designed, please consider this a feature request.

Thank you.

This is initially how it was designed, but we have gotten this feedback from others as well. I've added your info to the feature request and we'll be sure to let you know when we're able to implement it :)

Thanks!

Hello, I am also missing this feature. I have tried DisplayFusion, UltraMon and Actual Multiple Monitors, and while I like the interface, function range and speed of DisplayFusion best, I will probably end up buying AMM instead since it is the only tool that does non-focus mouse scrolling in Windows 8.1 as I need it (specifically in Windows Explorer).

Have you made any progress on adding non-focus Explorer menu scrolling? I can wait another month or two.

Not yet, sorry. I don't have an ETA on this feature but we'll see what we can do

Last Monday we released a new DisplayFusion beta version (http://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/) and this issue should be all fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

I downloaded the new version and wanted to test it, but unfortunately my trial is expired and since I already bought Actual Multiple Monitors (the non-focus scrolling decided mostly), I don't really feel like buying the full DisplayFusion license just to test whether scrolling works properly everywhere now.

It'd be great if someone else could write in-detail where the new version works now, though.
