In allot of Microsoft products, and ones based on that.
There is another use for the Wheel on your mouse.
If you hold down CTRL and use the Wheel you can either

in Word: Zoom from 10 - 500 in Intervals of 10
in Excel: Zoom from 10-100 in Intervals of 15
in Outlook: in a Mail Zooms Unknown
IrfanView: Zoom from 64X48 - 6336X4752 in Intervals of 64 (may Very with Pictures)
in IE: Change Text Size from Smallest to Largest

Also in IE, if you hold down Shift and use the mouse it is same as clicking back and forward or Backspace/Alt+Left arrow Key and Alt + Right arrow key

Not sure if any of these have been said before if so please feel free to delete mine.

Those are some wonderful tips!

Thanks for sharing.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

There is a similar option in Mozilla, so you can use the wheel to scroll up and down a page, and/or zoom.

Edit/Preferences/ Advanced/Mousewheel.

There maybe something similar in FF.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
