    Resolved [RESOLVED] How do I turn off auto scroll in Win7?

    How do I turn off this annoying scroll feature in Win7? Both for Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer.

    I just went into the control panel and mouse properties and unchecked "enable vertical scrolling" in the device setting.

    I'll see if that does it.

    Looks like it worked. I just went into Win Explorer and scrolled manually looking at photos.

    If you're talking a laptop, scrolling control is always under the touchpad adjustments/properties. For me, I constantly use the vertical scrolling. But horizontal is always off!

    I am interested in this. I went to mouse and found properties under HARDWARE
    only. I did not find "enable vertical scrolling" in the device setting.
    How do you find this setting? I am using win 7 prof. I also have win XP home
    on another computer and a laptop with win XP home.

    Correct. (I didn't have time to post them in here). Some of them will be showing you where the "enable vertical scrolling" option is in Windows.

    Note that this option is usually for a touchpad, [on a laptop], not a mouse.
