    Looks like there's some fun and useful stuff in there; thanks for the link Alan.

    I noticed that one of the PowerToys is:
    <hr>Tweak UI

    This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more.<hr>
    I'm wondering if this will help me to make progress on <!post=this little idea,531166>this little idea<!/post> - do you think it's worth a try?

    Although TweakUI XP is a very handy tool, it doesn't have a setting to use the middle button to close windows; I think that's really mouse specific.
