Mice with scroll wheels came years after WFW 3.11 release, so they can't be supported out-of-the-box.
I don't know about any third-party software for that, but I've never been looking...
Back in the mid-90s when I used Windows 3.1 on my 286 PC I always wondered.. :
"What is that third mouse button for?"
I mean, at the time, I barely used the button on the right, even.
On my father's PC running Win95, sure.. It was used for this strange "new" context menu that could be summoned by right clicking on that desktop..
But a scroll wheel, an all-optical mouse (no ball), PS/2 (Mini-DIN) connectors.. My goodness, that was unusual to me.
I mean, it was not totally unheard of. But it was as rare as one of these trackball mice.
Maybe even more so, not sure.
By the time Win98 came out, *I think* mice with scroll wheels were all over the place, though.
The Microsoft IntelliMouse or how it was called seemed quite popular for a while.
