Scrollr is a free software to scroll background windows or inactive windows without losing focus from the active window.

Normally, it is not possible in Windows PC to scroll inactive windows (except Windows 10 that comes with built-in feature to scroll background windows) using the mouse wheel. We have to first click on the background window to make it active window and then we can scroll that particular window. But using this software, you can scroll down/up background windows. Any window, where your mouse pointer is located can be scrolled easily.

Scrollr doesn’t provide any user interface and silently runs in system tray. In the below screen recording, you can see how easily I was able to scroll background windows using this software.

Here are other free software that lets you make foreground window transparent: see through windows, chaos crystal, and Peek Through.

It is just a tiny software, but can come in handy when you are watching some video or working on a particular application and don’t want to lose focus from that window just because you need to use background window(s) for a few seconds.
