intellipoint instant viewer

Reading time: 1 min

New version of Intellipoint mouse software from Microsoft comes with Instant Viewer, a ‘sort of’ Alt+Tab replacement. I’ve switched it to my unused right side button of my Intellimouse Optical and it’s proving very handy (by default it’s added to the scroll wheel). Download it here.

  1. YOu know MS makes great mice and great software for them. And then codes them in such a way as they can’t work with Macs properly.

    Meh. I wish I knew before I bought two new MS mice.

  2. Have they Jann, I have a Logitech at home. Hmmmm.

    Adrian – I have to admit that I’m a fan of Microsoft hardware… well mice and keyboards at least. I’ve had this intellipoint optical for years, and think I’m going to buy a reserve one for future use!

  3. That looks like a cut down verison of Expose (http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/expose/) on the Mac. But that’s me mentioning Apple nonsense on a Windows post so I’ll say no more.

    Does look slick though. My Logitech at work has a quick switch type functionality which will list the current running apps and allow you to switch quickly. I’ve been looking for an Expose app for Windows (that doesn’t cost) as I really miss it at work.

  4. This Instant Viewer looks a lot like the Expose feaure from Apple. I’ve had this mapped to the ‘depress’ of the scroll wheel on my mouse since I got my MacBook, and I find it incredibly useful when switching between apps.

  5. Duh! Guess I should have viewed the link first. I just read the “alt+tab replacement” bit (which Logitech mice have had for years). I wonder if the existing Logitech alt+tab function button will produce the same effects with Vista, seeing as it has a similar(ish) Exposé style ting?

    I’ll check.
