How do you get smooth scrolling by clicking the scroll wheel?

Question: How do you get smooth scrolling by clicking the scroll wheel?

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.

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.

I'm sorry if that's more like a support issue, I do realize it's a silly little problem, but I'm switching to Firefox (cuz I'm already sick of Google and Chrome) and this really bugs me.
When you're on a reasonably long page and you want to quickly scroll through it, you can either grab the scroll bar (I think it's called the "thumb") and move it around as you wish OR you can do it by clicking the negative space of the scroll bar (above and below the thumb).
And with the second option you can hold your left mouse button so that the page will scroll until you let go. But after switching to Firefox, I realized that as you are holding the LMB on the negative space, you cannot simultaneously move the cursor around so it would scroll towards the new cursor position.
You have to literally click above or below the thumb and NOT move your mouse at all for it to scroll to that point. When you're moving the cursor, it just stops.
Is that how FIrefox is and always was or is there some setting that can get rid of it? I know it's silly but it works like this everywhere, in every Windows folder, program etc it just how it's always worked, that's why I'm surprised it doesn't here.
I hope I described it well enough because it's a weird issue and I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask about this but I just don't know how to google this...

So, every once in a while I come across this strange issue:

1. Aero Peek suddenly stops workingWhen I hover my mouse over windows on the taskbar, the windows preview will flash for a fraction of a second and then vanish, if I'm moving my mouse along the taskbar the window preview will quickly "blink" (it appears and disappears) for as long I'm moving my pointer across that program's area on the taskbar, but nothing even remotely clear enough to see what's in that window. Once I stop moving the mouse, even while in that program's title area on the taskbar, i can't get the "blinking" effect to come back for that specific one unless I move my mouse off of it and then back on.2. Clicking with the scroll wheel to scroll stops workingI like to scroll pages by clicking and holding with the scroll wheel, then I release when I get to where I want to be. But that functionality no longer works, nor does simply clicking once and then moving the mouse to scroll. When I try either of these methods, the small white circle with the arrows which indicate that you've clicked to scroll with the mouse wheel will flash on the screen for an instant then disappear.What I've tried:
Restarting computer (works, but is a nuisance especially if I have a lot of tabs open in Chrome)
Ending every non-essential process in task manager, including explorer.exe and dwm.exe (doesn't work)
Disabling everything in Performance Options > Visual Effects (doesn't work)

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.

I have Internet Explorer 6 and i got problems scrolling.

I want smooth scrolling instead of skippign those 4 other lines it actually shows them but passes them quickly

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

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.

I'm looking for a *wired* mouse with a smooth wheel scroll (as apposed to clicky/notched; not necessarily free-spin).
The Logitech M500 is slightly too large for me. The ideal length would be around 112 mm.

Soft and easily pressed buttons (left, middle and right) is also very important to me.
Microsoft has some smooth-scroll mice but I find the buttons too stiff.


The following lines are for semi-pros. :)

I have disassembled Logitech B110 and Logitech K120 and removed their springs.
The result is a great smooth scrolling (sometimes too loose though).

The Logitech B110 left/right "click-chips" are positioned slightly lower on the motherboard compared to Logitech K120.
So if I don't use a full palm grip, the Logitech B110 buttons are easier to press.
OTOH, Logitech K120 has a special spring for pressing the wheel and removing it makes the middle-click press very soft.
Logitech B110 uses a different mechanism and the middle-click press is really stiff.

I'd like to have a combination of B110 and K120: left/right "click-chips" in a lower position on the motherboard and a (removble) spring for the middle-click press.

Do you know if the Logitech M90 or a similar model fits my wish-list? :)

I'd appreciate your help.

Best regards.

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 question, does anyone know of a program or a way to enable ultra mega smooth scrolling in Windows 7?

Just two little but annoying bugs have popped up after a few full recoveries (severe viruses).

Scrolling now (either mouse or scroll bar) is no longer smooth. It 'ripples' and when closing out the text collapded from top and bottom to center.

In OE, the font keeps changing on its own. I seem to remember a tool that locks the setting, but can't find it.

Hello SputnikNYC and welcome to the Forum. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your question but isn't smooth scrolling a mouse or touchpad function? On my laptop I have a Synaptics touchpad and it supports smooth scrolling in Windows 7.

Windows reader is fast lite and works great but what would make the app even better is smooth scrolling while its in "Continuous" view mode. The other view modes are fine but I normally have the enlarge the document and the most practical view mode for that is continuous and smooth scrolling doesn't work in that mode. This is the only app that I have issues with. Is there a registry hack that can help?

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.

Cheers one and all

Can anyone tell me how to setup auto-scrolling (smooth and controllable,like it is in Opera7) in Crazy Browser, and in Internet Explorer6?

The auto-scrolling in IE is very jerky and uncontrollable (enabling smooth scolling seems to make absolutely no difference). Opera's auto-scrolling, on the other hand, is a comparative joy to use.

I am using IE6/WinXP with all patches and updates. Something weird started happening and I can't figure out why. One day, whenever I try to scroll UP on a webpage (scrolling down does nothing), my browser seems to take it as a "Back" command (it goes back one page in my history)...I don't think I need to describe just how irriating this is. This is something that started happening out of the blue, everything worked great at one point.

Some other things that might make a difference here..I am using a wireless optical logitech mouse, but using the windows drivers and no logitech software for "extras" features. I also have the google toolbar installed. somebody please help this is so annoying! thanks

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.

Please reply, thankyou.

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.

This is almost embarrassingly minor, but it's been bugging me a bit and with apologies, I'll ask anyway.

I use the CTRL-scroll wheel function in Firefox all the time to zoom the screen in and out. To zoom in, I rotate the wheel toward me.

Trying to get some detail in photos or maybe just to estimate how much I can blow up a print, I use the scroll-wheel (no CTRL needed) in Windows Photo Viewer. But there, I rotate the wheel away from me to zoom in, and rotating it toward me does nothing because the photo won't shrink smaller than its default size.

Anybody know of any way to make the behavior consistent? I looked through the mouse CP settings and tried to look in the registry under the photo viewer. If there's something there it eluded me or wasn't obvious enough for my skill level.

Thanks. As you've probably guessed, I'm a creature of habit.

Question: Scroll wheel issue

I'm having a small issue with the scroll wheel in Vista Home Basic. When I have a dialog box open to select files and I try to use the scroll wheel to move through the files it always jumps back to the beginning of the file list after my first scroll attempt. After jumping back to the top of the list I can scroll normally.

I've looked in control panel, but did not see any options there regarding this function. Is this something that can be turned off?

Answer:Scroll wheel issue

Hi bumble48

I imagine you might have already tried all the following suggestions, but have a look & see if you've checked the whole works.

You mentioned checking in the Control Panel -- if you used the generic Mouse applet, try different settings:
1) In the "Buttons" tab, deselect "ClickLock"
2) In the "Pointer Options" tab, check the "Snap To" options (deselect "Automatically move pointer to the default button in an option box")
3) In the "Wheel" tab, make sure that scrolling doesn't have "One screen at a time" selected
4) In the "Hardware" tab, make sure that the correct make/model of your mouse is listed (If not, visit your mouse manufacturer's website & grab a recent driver).

If the mouse is a wireless, try things with a new battery -- some mice get downright unpredictable when the batteries are low. Also remove any possible sources of electrical/magnetic interference.

And --- selecting consecutive files in any window (option box or not) is simpler, I think, by ignoring the wheel altogether, and using the click & drag method of selection.

Best of luck!

So, in battlefield 2142, when using the sniper, you use the scroll wheel to control the zoom. Mine was working fine until recently when it stopped working.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Answer:2142 Scroll Wheel Help

Do you have another mouse you can try? Although if it works fine with other programs, that's likely not the issue.

Is it a high-end mouse that came with any special software? Devices like the Logitech laser mice come with a program that lets you assign certain buttons to specific functions. It may be causing the problem if you have it installed (or not installed).

Hello again 7 Forums!

Just recently, my trackball was acting funky, so I took out the trackball, plugged in the new BTC Optical Mouse (Just a basic 2 button mouse with a mouse wheel) my dad had sitting in his room...and the mouse wheel won't scroll when I try to scroll with the wheel! If I click the mousewheel, it will move whatever it is scrolling.

Nothing will scroll, and I don't know why!

Not even items outside of the web browser.

Anyone got any ideas?

Answer:Mouse Wheel Will Not Scroll

One place to visit is in the Control Panel>Mouse section where you go over to the Wheel tab and try adjusting one or more of the settings and click the apply button to see if any immediate change is noticed.

In the Device Manager there which you might want to visit first you look under "Human Interface Devices" as well as the "Mouse and other pointing devices" items to see if the replacement mouse has been detected properly. It does seem odd however that the scroll wheel wouldn't work automatically unlike what you would see when swapping for a mouse with programmable buttons where you then need more then just a mouse driver but the software that goes with it.

So on windows 7 apparently every website has to have the smallest font possible, so I have to use the ctrl + scroll wheel trick just to be able to read anything at all.

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.

The scrolling, no matter what program I use, or on the net, has became slow and jerky -- I can spin the wheel 5 or 6 times (often more) and the text will move up or down 1 or 2 lines.

Anyway, does W98SE have a setting of some type that handles wheel mouse speed, or is the Mouse just getting ready to quit? Its about 2 years old.

This is an annoyance rather than a serious problem, but I'd love to sort it out.

I like to scroll just 4 lines per click when I use the mouse wheel but whenever I boot up the system has reset this to 15 lines and I have to go into settings and reset. The setting then remains fine - until I close down and re-boot, when I have to go back into settings again !

I've looked at the registry but can't see anything obvious to adjust ; I'll mention that I'm no expert but am willing to make technical adjustments if I can be pointed in the right direction

As I say, it's an annoyance - I generally only have to change once a day (when I initially boot up) but if someone can tell me how to fix it I'd appreciate it !
