Thanks to Rick Teale for the tip: Pointix has created a cool new mouse utility that may be of interest. Called Pop-Mouse Lite 3.10, this innovative little utility turns your screen borders into hot zones that can be programmed to trigger pop-up menus and toolbars to execute commands. Pop-Mouse Lite can be used to launch applications, open Web pages, open email, or almost anything else you could imagine. It works in Windows 95, 98, and NT 4.0, and best of all, it's free.
