I keep trying to disable smooth scroll list boxes and even though I uncheck it in Advanced Settings, it remains on. What's the deal? I even go to the registry setting to change that and it doesn't work. I don't want smooth scrolling in list boxes. GR.

Answer:Smooth Scrolling won't disable.

Figured this out. Ran TweakUI for XP in compatibility mode, disabled Smooth Scrolling and it worked! Nice.

The latest system update installed UltraNav driver of 4/6/2012.  This apparently implements smooth scrolling which is very nice to use BUT it significantly reduces my battery life.  I'd like to optimise battery life and return to my previous scrolling functionality.  I'd appreciate advice on how to determine which version of the driver I was running before this update, and how can I restore that version of the driver.  (I tried using the roll-back function in Windows Device Manager but that installed version of 7/6/2007 which disbaled scrolling altogether.) T617658CTO Windows XP SP3 

Answer:Restoring previous UltraNav driver to disable smooth scrolling

I stumbled onto the Fn-F8 facility for managing UltraNav and realise that I was confusing the smooth-scrolling function introduced in recent versions of FireFox with the EdgeMotion function in UltraNav which was presumable introduced on my system when I upgraded UltraNav from to  I have disabled smooth-scrolling in FireFox but enabled EdgeMotion in UltraNav which seems like a nice compromise between convenience and power consumption. I still have minor quibbles with UltraNav, specifically, when I try to scroll within drop-down boxes in my usual Web applications (like Redmine, for example) the drop-down pane immediately disappears.  I have to drag the pane control on the right (sorry, don't know the correct name for this) to find the option to select.  Before the upgrade I could scroll within dropdowns on the trackpad.  I also have a little block with up and down marks appearing to the left of the pointer arrow when I scroll which wasn't there before.  I'd appreciate any advice about addressing these issues.

I have just installed a new HDD and re-installed windows XP sp 3 on it and since doing so I have lost my smooth scrolling in both vertical and horizontal planes.

So far I have:

*checked the smooth scrolling box in IE & Mozilla
*unchecked the smooth scrolling restarted and rechecked smooth scrolling
*Installed latest drivers for ATI card
*Undated motherboard drivers
*Installed earlier ATI drivers

I have searched forums and the net for a week now and nothing other than those solutions (or re-install windows) have been offered.

Any help would be a miracle!


Answer:Smooth Scrolling not working (I have checked the boxes in IE & firefox)

Update on problem:
Say I want to browse the "post your workstation" thread, and I get to it by clicking on a link to the thread under "Last Post". Of course, the thread opens with the page scrolled to the last post, because that's what you clicked on. So, you hit the Home key to scroll to the top of the thread, because you want to read the whole thing. The images are loading, and there's no problem, but as soon as the LAST image finishs loading, the page jumps to the very last post, which is annoying when you have to go back and find your place again. That's what's driving me insane.

So, is there any way that you guys know of to disable it? Thanks

--------------- Original Post --------------

You know how if you go to, say, the 2005 Post your Workstation thread, and while the images are loading, you scroll down the page to read posts / look at the pictures, and once the images are done loading, it automatically scrolls the page to the last picture posted on said page?

I find this really annoying, so is there any way to disable it? Did some googling, and all I could find was stuff on "autoscrolling", which isn't this... Thanks!

Question: Smooth scrolling

Hi folks, a small problem you can maybe help me with.
On my XP computer I upgraded Internet Explorer from version 6, to IE8 a few days ago. Everything went fine, however I instantly noticed that web page scrolling has been affected, and is now very jumpy. Using the mouse wheel, the page scrolls in several jumps even after I let go of the wheel.
In IE I've looked at tools> Internet options> advanced, and under the browsing list have made sure that "use smooth scrolling" is ticked. Also in control panel mouse properties buttons, autoscroll, scrolling size is set to one line, and "use MS office compatible scroll only" is ticked. However, when I close the mouse properties box, I get a warning .... Run a DLL as an app has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.... Not sure what this means?
Funny thing is, I also runs Firefox on the same PC, and scrolling web pages on that is absolutely fine, perfectly smooth, no jerks, and one line at a time. So it's definitely IE8 related
As always, any help proffered is gratefully received.

Again, it sounds like drivers. Make sure the motherboard drivers are installed and up-to-date - espcially if it's a Via chipset board - and make sure you have the latest drivers for the graphics.Slow scrolling is almost always down to a system that can't cope with the load - your basic specs should be more than adequate, but drivers and other applications/viruses/Anti-Viruses/etc can slow things down.

This is actually a hardware problem, I think. At least it was in my case. I had to install the graphics driver for my video card and one for my monitor. And all my scrolling problems went away.

What kind of video card do you have and what kind of monitor? If you don't have a cd (which I didn't in the case of my monitor), go to the web site and download the file. The only reason I had the cd for the graphics card was that my husband had just bought the same card for his system. Liz

It's a waste for me to have 120hz monitor when I can only trully enjoy it during gaming or dragging and dropping files, icons, active windows etc.
When I scroll down using the mouse button or just dragging the slide bar, I get this very jerky motion, which is really annoying especially when you want to scroll through lines of text while trying to read them at the same time, looking for specific word.
I googled the problem but no solution came up. Luckily for Chrome I did find an extension called "Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller", its made by the same people who made "Yet Another Smooth Scroller" for Firefox. This extension works flawless and exactly what I wanted to achieve. Unfortunately now when I look at the rest of my desktop, scrolling through Total Commander, IRC, Foobar2000 makes it really painfully obvious how shitty the scrolling in Windows is.

My apologies if this has already been answered somewhere, I did a search but could not find it....

I have smooth scolling enabled for my web browser and it is nice, however for local windows when working on my computer I can't seem to make it happen. I found something called tweak ui that was suggested on another forum but it's "enable smooth scrolling" feature does not seem to affect local windows.

When the list moves in large jerky increments it's very difficult to keep track of where you are in the list.

Hi all

I like to work on my Word docs zoomed to 74% so I can see two pages at once, but very annoyingly Word decides that it would be just too easy if I could then use smooth scrolling when dragging the scroll bar! It reverts to a state of me dragging the scroll bar and seeing no change until I release the scroll bar. Very unuseful.

I'm on windows 7 Home premoium 32-bit, in case that matters. And I'm on a laptop so not using a mouse and its scroll wheel, and the scroll on the trackpad isn't working at the moment.

Surely there's a simple answer! But neither Word Help nor google revealed anything.

First of all, I'm not sure which forum I should use for this question, so if you're a moderator, please move it to the correct forum if appropriate.

Fortunately, I am able able to engage a form of smooth scrolling by clicking on my scroll wheel (I am a Windows 10 user) . It changes the cursor indicator to show that the "smooth scroll" is now engaged, and to initiate the scrolling I just move the mouse slightly. Acceleration, deceleration, or stoppage of the scrolling is accomplished with the degree of movement of the mouse (not the scroll wheel, in other words).

My neighbor, who also uses Windows 10, does not have this feature when he clicks on his scroll wheel. To see if it was an issue with his mouse I transferred my Logitech mouse and receiver dongle to his computer, but it didn't work either, so the smooth scrolling feature is apparently a software or perhaps a driver feature, but not a mouse hardware issue.

Does anyone know how to engage, enable, install (or whatever the appropriate term is) this form of smooth scrolling on a/any Windows PC?

I didn't find a good answer to that question by Googling it, even though I found one posting on how to engage an experimental feature by Google for the Chrome browser, which both my neighbor and myself use. I would think there's a broader, less specific and risky application available somewhere, somehow, but I haven't found it thus far.

I have this problem with my Tecra 9100 that after moving my cursor for a few seconds it 'leaps' to whatever direction I was pointing to. This is very annoying. Aswell as this, when I scroll, it is not smooth at all but like the cursor, it 'leaps'. So when I try scrolling down a page I've gotta be careful because it might just leap to the bottom! Thought I should also mention that dragging Windows is jumpy too.

I am almost certain that these three problems are all related to each other.

Before, my laptop was fine with none of the problems above. This was until error messages saying 'Delayed Write Failed' popped up out of the blue. Such errors I have found to be related to the hardrive not functioning correctly.

Optimisticly, I formated Drive C and put a fresh installation of Windows on to see if this would fix my problem. Surely it would?... Nope. How about I download the MouseWare driver that my laptop came with?... Still doesn't fix the problem.

I've run out of ideas and don't think a software update will fix my problem. I believe it's to do with my hardware (namely speaking, hard disks). I've got 2 hard disks. Coincidently, 'Delayed Write Failed' error messages shows up on both my hard disks.

In windows 7 and windows 10 preview this works fine.

I clean installed win 8.1 PRO for testing on my spare rig.

Used IE11 a small amount and smooth scrolling was working.
I Installed all cricitial and reccomended updates via windows update. Included was also a nvidia driver update. Rebooted of course/
Now in IE11 the smooth scrolling is always off, even with the box ticked.

I tried toggling the tick.
Tried using the reset settings option in IE11.
Still no smooth scrolling.
This is a clean install, no 3rd party software, no imported data.
No customisation of the ISO other than to add a EI.CFG to disable the requirement of a key.

Any ideas?

Answer:IE 11, clean install, smooth scrolling doesnt work.

Roll back the driver or get one from the manufacturer's website.

Microsoft drivers have a bad reputation.

edit--- I'm lazy when it comes to driver updates & use a program to find them for me.

While smooth scrolling works fine with my Chrome browser when I engage it by pressing down once on my scroll wheel, my neighbor, who is also using Chrome (We both use Windows 10 also), does not get smooth scrolling when you press down on his mouse's scroll wheel. Is that possibly because of his mouse's features /capabilities, a Chrome issue, or something else?

Thanks for looking

Answer:Pressing on scroll wheel does not engage smooth scrolling

Pressing the mouse wheel enables scrolling by moving the mouse (notice the mouse cursor changes). It's a Windows function and should work in all browsers. If it's not enabling, it's most likely a mouse issue. Could be a faulty mouse, or there is mouse software installed and the mouse button has been remapped.

As suggested per this bug-report at the Google Chrome forums...
BUG: hitting CTRL while the window is still scrolling zooms it
...I am now posting here as it turns out to be a driver related issue.I am running on a Y580, Win 10, got Lenovo Touchpad drivers installed via Windows Update.This has bugged me for a veeery long time and I finally figured out what causes it.The problem is this:
In any application where I scroll content, the "smooth" scrolling of the touchpad makes the display scroll even after I am done performing scroll gestures. In itself that ain't a bad thing, if only the application wasn't thinking I am still performing the gesture. Well, they all do. And that is a problem, because the second I touch the CTRL key, and I do that often, a ZOOM-EVENT fires and so I am constantly forced to reset the zoomlevel.Note that the current driver ui doesn't give me an option to disable smooth scrolling.In general, on the level of touchpad drivers, there needs to be a clear difference between "user is actually performing a scroll action" and "driver is still busy firing scroll events thanks to some smoothifying algorithmagic".
I now disabled scrolling in the driver settings alltogether and use TwoFingerScroll to do the scrolling; it allows me to set scrolling to "compatible" rather than "smooth". Scrolling now feels a wee more staccato but seeing an end to all the unwanted zooming that ain't a bad thing, at all.~FWIW, apart from some more tou...

Answer:Y580 - Problem: leftover momentum of "smooth" touchpad scrolling triggers zooming

I had this same problem when using Google Chrome on my T440s (under both Windows 7 and Windows 10). The continual zooming had been annoying me for months, until yesterday I figured out that I was pressing the control key while there was some still some scrolling momentum. Thankfully in my case the fix is simple: I have turned down the "scrolling intertia" in the Synaptics control panel, and I am no longer experiencing unintentional zooming.

Hello all,

I dislike smooth fonts and want to disable them completely.
I already have done this :

1. Disabled ClearType via Display / Adjust ClearType and unchecking the check box here
2. Disabled font smoothing via System / Advanced parameters / Performances / Parameters / Uncheck "Smooth fonts"
3. Select Tahoma instead of Segoe for all elements inside the advanced parameters for my them.

With this, most of the UI elements are not smooth anymore but some still are. Namely, the taskbar, the window bar, the control panel and even some parts of the basic "open dialog". You can see an example in the attached screenshot.

Is there a way to completely disable smoothing everywhere?
If so, what would you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

I was using Firefox 40 Beta 64bit version in Windows 7 but it was not so smooth.

But Firefox 40 Beta 64bit version in Windows 10 is so smooth. Its feels so crisp & responsive and does not feel like a beta version at all. I think Firefox 64bit version is going to be a great release and I can't wait to see the new appearance for Windows 10.

So if you are using Windows 10, then I strongly suggest you to try the 64bit version of Firefox.

Ublock Origin (Adblocker for power users) or Ublock (Adblocker for average users)

Its better to install Privacy Badger & HTTPS-Everywhere add-ons from as they provide the most up-to-date versions. Don't worry about installing software from as they are one of the few organizations that care about user privacy in the Internet.
PS: Beta version may have security holes, so think thrice before installing beta softwares.

Answer:Firefox 40 Beta 64bit version is so smooth in Windows 10

Your not kidding here. It is smooth on Windows 10. Also as fast as Chrome x64 (in my opinion anyway - every system is different). I always prefer using the parent instead of a child/build off like Cyberfox since you get faster patches, better support, etc. so now I have an excuse to use Firefox proper again. Never heard of Privacy Badger but will check it out.

Thank you for the post. Didn't know Firefox was actually planning a stable release for x64 of Firefox. I also see that version 40 added full support for Windows 10. It's great that they didn't rush the support as that normally results in problems.

Smooth Key Scroll - Chrome Web Store

My new Samsung 850 ssd scrolls too fast with the arrow keys on my keyboards, Samsung says noway. No matter what I try to adjust on my computer or ssd, it scrolls/jumps too fast and gives me headaches. My WD and Toshiba Disk drives are both normal scrolling speed, and fairly smooth with a little stutter. After three days of frustration I finally found this little app to control the scroll. I rarely use a mouse, just keyboards, one is wired and one is not. My computer must be weird, because as soon as the ssd goes in the scrolling becomes painful to look at. Plus I still get a some jitter just as I press the arrow key, then it smooths out, I have no idea what that could be.

Hello, I have been using Windows XP for a very long time and have customized Windows 7 taskbar to mimic most of XP's behavior with the aid of "7 Taskbar Tweaker" (custom groups, never combine tasks, etc.)

However, as I run 21 or more tasks, I expected the tasks in the taskbar to shrink in size like in Windows XP. However, a scrollbar has been added to the bottom of the taskbar, which makes task management very cumbersome. I have attached a screenshot to illustrate.

Is there a way to disable the scrollbar in the taskbar (see red rectangle selection)? I'd like the tasks to shrink in size or create multiple columns in the same taskbar space like in Windows XP.

Answer:Disable Scrolling in Windows 7 Taskbar?

With taskbar on left, the problem is that you don't get more columns for new tabs when you drag the taskbar to the right, you just get longer tabs. This seems like a bug, or maybe it's a "feature" I don't understand...

When using taskbar on the bottom, I can get 20 tabs per row without scrolling kicking in, but have to manually drag the edge of the taskbar up to make more rows. I just had 60 separate tabs open, way more than I ever need...

I was playing GTA 3 without any problems on my old system, then a got a new one and well the game goes smooth, then its jerky and then all of a sudden its smooth again.
I use the games capability to play MP3's during game play that my old system never had a problem with, but with the current one sometime the audio (even the games built-in ones) goes a bit funny and skips like a scratched CD. (the actual CD is fine)
My old system was:

AMD K6-2 500MHz CPU
384MB-RAM (PC133)
Gigabyte GA-5AX Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 Video
Creative "Something" PCI sound
Windows XP Home

My current system is:

AMD Duron 1.3GHz
256MB-RAM (DDR 2700)
MSI KT3 Ultra2 Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 (the same card)
on board 6 channel surround sound (all but the front channels are disabled)
Windows XP Home

On both systems I am running GTA at: 640x480 32bit as thats all the old system could handle. I assume the new one should be able to cope with a lot better, but it doesn't.
Of course on the new system everything is cleanly installed, so I don't know where GTA is getting this problem from.

Example: You have a folder open with pictures in it. The Explorer window for said window is in List view mode, and at least 2 rows are visible. The file you want to open is in the 2nd row. When you click the file, it automatically scrolls the list so that the file you selected is in the left-most row, rendering any double-click on the 2nd or subsequent rows ineffective. Instead of opening the file, it selects the file, immediately scrolls it's row back, selects the new file that has scrolled into that row in the same position and scrolls it back as well. 

Is it possible to institute a small delay on the automatic scrolling to allow for double-clicking or disable the behavior entirely?

Sorry if this has been covered before, I couldn't find any relevant info through searching.

sometimes when a page is loading feels like it gets stuck for a half a second while scrolling, and that doesnt seem to happen on an XP machine i have. Am i the only one with that problem? it does not happen all the time but i def notice it.

Answer:firefox loading scrolling

If you have a slow internet connection, it can feel like that because while you're scrolling the page is putting new images into the screen which make the total size of the page larger, therefore even though you're scrolling down you end up going up instead of down.

Think about it this way:

Firefox sees your position as absolute.
I.E. If you're 3000 pixels down the page, even if the page gets longer you'll stay 3000 pixels down.
That means that if the page goes from 6000 pixels to 9000 pixels you'll end up going from 1/2 down the page to 1/3 down the page. When scrolling it happens in much smaller increments.
