Very useful, thank you!
IMPORTANT: when you use Logitech SetPoint software AND run your Visual Studio as Administrator, this extension will not work out of the box.
WORKAROUND for Windows 10 (other OS should be similar):
1. Open Task Manager
2. Startup tab
3. Right-click "Logitech SetPoint Event Manager"
=> Properties => Compatibility => Change Settings for All Users
Check "Run as Administrator".

After restarting Logitech SetPoint as Administrator, the extension will work.

Works great in Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. Just installed it, restarted visual studio, and it worked.

Does not work when Visual Studio in opened as Administrator. I actually have the mouse back and forward working without this plugin when opening Visual Studio normally, but this plugin did not help the mentioned situation when Visual Studio is opened as Administrator.

Hi Mörre,

Please consider filing an issue on the project so we can work to resolve this. Thanks!

Simple and perfect. You'll sorely miss it when moving to a computer where it's not installed. It lets one wonder why Microsoft didn't build that in.

Works as expected and something I don't see why MS doesn't include by default. Thanks for creating this.

Just a note this also works in vmware workstation if you have your dev env in workstation.

Love it. I got a new Logitech mouse (formerly MS mouse) and for whatever reason the back/forward navigation stopped working. This extension got it working again! Thanks much.

So glad that the Back button now works with VS 2013, so I can use this extension again. Forward button still has some issues, but Back is what I use 90% of the time, so I'm good.
