    I recently got a nice Kensington Slimblade Media Mouse (72286) that has a nice scroll ball like the mighty mouse and I read that the more expensive slimblade can use their scroll ball as a cursor. I would've went with a moar expensive one but they all had fugly colors and I needed black to match the rest of my comp. By the way this isn't bluetooth.

    So, the expensive version is the one that has the ability to use the scroll wheel as a cursor, but you didn't get the expensive one? According to what you just said, you can't use the scroll wheel as a cursor unless there is some program out there that lets you do it.

    Is that what you're looking for? Some software that will let you do it?

    The more expensive one actually has a slider on the bottom I think so downloading its driver wouldn't work.
    Edit: A program like joy2key would work. However joy2key specifically wouldn't work because my mouse doesn't show up as a joystick.

    Edit again: Okay I think I might have found something that will do it. Autohotkey. Does anyone know of a script for it that will do what I described?
