Do you have a pointing device whose middle button is unsupported under Windows 95? If you do, you'll want to try Cool Mouse 97.
When I recently installed an older Logitech three-button trackball, Windows was able to detect the device and install the correct drivers, but the middle button was completely useless. I then installed CoolMouse and it brought that middle button back to life. It can now be used for double-clicking and a whole lot more. It gives your middle button powerful window management features which are lacking in Windows 95. These include "rolling" up a program into its title bar, quickly minimizing any program to the system tray and automatically scrolling a window by simply holding down the middle button.
There was an unexpected surprise with this program, I was able to minimize the Desktop to the system tray.
Although Cool Mouse can be run like a conventional programs, I recommend setting it to run automatically from startup. The program is well behaved as it runs minimized in the system tray. Features can be easily changed by simply right clicking on the Cool Mouse icon. Online help is quite thorough and also includes a troubleshooting guide.
