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

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

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 touchpad-troubles, upgrading my Y580 from WIN 8.1 to Win 10 went about as smooth as one can expect from an operating system upgrade thanks to having uninstalled all previous drivers beforehand.

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.

My touchpad cuts out occasionally for no apparent reason. The scrolling, zooming and other features will no longer work. I can move the cursor around but it will lag. I have to restart or sleep/wake up the laptop to restore the touchpad functions.

I did not even know that zoom was a feature of this Microsoft mouse. I have always used the wheel for scrolling. Today I went to scroll and the page zoomed in and out. I thought it was the page but it's doing it on every page and in every folder. I must have switched the function but i don't know how to switch it back. I want my scroll back. I don't like the zoom feature. Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you very much!
 

Answer:my mouse is zooming not scrolling

Many mouses have a button built in to the scroll wheel. Perhaps you pushed down on the scroll wheel which 'flipped' it to zoom. Try pushing down on the scroll wheel for a second and see if it makes a difference. Also, you may have one of the CTRL keys stuck. I know if you hold CTRL while using the scroll wheel, it will zoom instead of scroll. It is possible to change the default behavior of the scroll wheel so somehow it may have been changed to not use CTRL for zooming and it has been set to zoom by default, and it may scroll by pressing CTRL. So look into that. I did some quick research, and it appears that there is a setting in the mouse software for 'universal access' that can be set for 'zoom on' or 'zoom off' and you may have it set to 'on'.

If none of this helps, post the exact name and model of the mouse, and maybe we can find out more about your problem.... good luck!

The Yoga 3 Pro appears to use a Synaptics touchpad driver. I have used a Dell at work and an HP at home both using Synaptics touchpads as well as my wife's Toshiba Satellite. The device drivers for these offered "Momentum" which, once you get used to, you can't live without. Momentum allows you to flick your finger a little in a direction and the mouse cursor will continue in that direction across the screen until you touch the touchpad again which "catches" or stops the cursor movement and you can resume moving it to its final destination. The Lenovo Yoga 3 "Synaptics" touchpad driver does not offer this option in its settings. Does anyone know of updated drivers that will provide this capability? I have looked a little deeper (into the registry) of the other computers and have found some settings that seem to enable it in the current driver (Synaptics 18.0.7.85) - MomentumMotion (setting to 1 enables it) as well as MomentumMotionFriction. No wonder it is disabled by default and no setting in the GUI to turn it on - it is very erratic and barely works (sometimes works a little if you make a very long pass across the touchpad and not too quickly before letting go). It is very unusable as it stands in this driver. If anyone has any information on how to enable this feature properly through a proper driver that works, please let me know. This one feature really makes or breaks using a touch pad all day without getting so "tired" in the hands, fingers, and wrist. Even ... Read more

Hi guys n girls,

This is so annoying as it has happened before but I cannot remember how on earth I fixed it!!

I have a Microsoft wireless mouse (mobile mouse 6000), had it for 2 years and it's worked fine (except this issue once before). All of sudden tonight the mouse centre wheel starts zooming in and out instead of scrolling and left click is opening everything in a new window. My trackpad on the laptop is working fine.

Sony Vaio laptop, Win 7 Home, 64bit.

No software or hardware updates have happened, nothing in particular happened, I was scrolling through eBay and all of a sudden it stopped scrolling and started zooming!

My keys are fine, the ctrl keys are not stuck down. I have reset the mouse to default, re-installed the mouse, sworn at it, threatened it with violence, nothing, still the same.

Oh and my trackpad is doing the same thing, swiping it is zooming and when I try to left or right click it just freezes.

I have Googled the issue and all I can see is people giving stupid responses like changing things in the registry which I am not going to entertain, clearly this is something 'simple' that has happened so I am not going to mess up my laptop and start re-writing things on it!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I know it was something simple before but I really am so frustrated because I cannot remember what it was

I recently bought a T430. It is good to see a "Momentum" function of the touchpad that makes controlling easier. Just unexpectedly, after enabling that option, every time I drag with the touchpad it just "automatically" releases the "mouse button" as soon as the "friction" caused the momentum to end, rendering it almost unusable. I am sure that momentum causes this because if I disable momentum or move the cursor slowly (causing no momentum), this never occur. This also doesn't occur when I move the cursor again when momentum is still active. This proves the problem only occur when the moment caused by momentum has just ended. My UltraNav driver is version 16.2.5.0 on Windows 7 x64. I hope the programmers quickly fix it and release an update.

Answer:T430 TouchPad momentum bugged dragging

To add: this doesn't happen when the left key above the touchpad is used. It happens only when the one below the touchpad is used. Strange.

My Compaq restarts frequently. Have observed that this is most of the time associated with scrolling a window down.

This is a Compaq P4/2.4 GHz/40 GB/256 MB ram running on XP pro.

Have updated windows, antivirus. Have also installed the mouseware. Tried replacing the mouse & keyboard.

But no way. Randomly it restarts which looks to be triggered by scrolling any window. Does not look to be associated with any software.

Any suggestions
 

Answer:Scrolling triggers XP to restart

Having waited so long for someone to reply, I continued my efforts to resolve the problem. Spoke to Compaq guys. Did the bios upgrade. Sent the machine to our IT guy. But no effort could solve the problem. I am still scared of scrolling a window. Have also noticed that I used to lose some OE mails during the restart process. Yesterday evening we noticed that the power supply is set at 220 V instead of 110 V. More than 24 hrs have passed without any trouble after setting the power supply correctly to 110 V. Still observing.... Wondering if power supply could create this kind of problem?

I recently purchased an HP Spectre 360. When I am browsing the web and I attempt to scroll with my finger, I get a lot of random zooming in and out. I have made sure the screen is completely clean and I am only using one finger. I also had some ghost touches (the computer behaved as if it was being touched in one spot over and over but was not being touched at all) on the touchscreen the other day. I was unable to do anything on the computer at all until I shut it down. I only had that problem the one time but I would have to return the computer if that is something that would persist. I still have problems with the touchscreen though. It selects things when I put my finger on it to scroll as well as the zooming issue I already mentioned. Is there a setting for this I am missing or am I doing something wrong? I really don't want to return the computer as I otherwise enjoy it very much but I need to be able to do my work without interruptions to my flow. Please contact me with some help. Thanks.

Hi DR_1983,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with touchpad in your Lenovo U430 laptop.
 
If the touchpad is synaptic go to mouse properties, select device setting tab, under this select setting under setting select scrolling. Under scrolling select the drop down list and select pinch zoom option. Disable this option and select apply and ok button.
 
If still the same issue, select defaults and check for the issue.

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.

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.

Hi All

Sometimes I get this annoying problem. My mouse scrolls fine(smooth) most of the time, but sometimes
it scrolls jumpy(skips a few lines each scroll). I did set the mouse wheel options in Control Panel to 1 line per scroll(after this issue automatically appeared), which is the min, but this problem occurs without any changes made by myself.

It happens in my browser and all other apps I run on the PC (photoshop, Windows Explorer etc)

If I reboot my PC, the problem is gone. How can I solve this mouse scrolling jumping issue?

I have a t430 2342CTO with the latest ultranav drivers installed. I have seen screenshots of older versions of the driver where you can select smooth scrolling for the trackpoint. I was wondering if there is any way to enable this behavior in the current driver. Also, is there any way I can change the amount of lines scrolled by the trackpoint? Changing the windows setting only seems to affect the touchpad, not the trackpoint. Perhaps there is a registry setting or something?

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. The default "jerky" scrolling is just plain frustrating when scrolling through a long list of files looking for something in particular. When the list moves in large jerky increments it's very difficult to keep track of where you are in the list.

Is smooth scolling possible in all windows, not just web browsers???
 

Answer:smooth scrolling possible in ALL windows?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello,

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.

Answer:Tecra 9100: Jumpy cursor and scrolling not smooth.

Sometimes I think it might be especially when I am using google.docs to write, but it seems in general to be a helluva a downside, although otherwise I love so much about Stream 11 that I replaced my first after its keyboard went crazy post-warranty (in 18 months). So I hope somebody from HP notices this and cranks it in. Could it be a Windows 10 issue? It's abundant features and prompts also are a distraction for my scholarly work, alas.

It's not a "help me now or I'll shoot the computer" kind of thing, but it's very annoying. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

I'm NOT very technically savy (more the intellectual type, which is to say dumb about computers) and otherwise, Vista is working quite well (after installing an additional 1.5 gigs of RAM). I'm very, very reluctant to do anything which might crash Vista, and we intellectual types have a very hard time figuring out that stuff.

Recent Windows Phone update causing the MS Edge Browser to not scroll smoothly

The latest system update installed UltraNav driver 16.1.1.0 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 7.5.27.24 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 7.5.17.24 to 16.1.1.0.  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.

Hi all,

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop, running Windows 8.1 and I use Chrome, currently on Beta and Canary builds. Because the 3800x1800 resolution is mostly problematic in Windows, I have it set to 1920x1080.

In Chrome, I use the touchpad to two-finger scroll up and and webpages. This works, except every time I put two fingers to the touchpad I see a faint animation of a square zooming in... and then randomly, every so often, pages zoom way in... in such a way that changing zoom levels with CTRL++ and CTRL+- doesn't change it. The ONLY way I have found to zoom back out is to actually do a pinch gesture on the touchscreen.

I know you can disable pinchzoom in Chrome, but the problem with that is, that I WANT that to work when I use the touchscreen.

I have disabled pinch gestures on the touchpad itself.

This is driving me nuts and I can't figure out what I am doing on the touchpad to cause the zooming. It also randomly scrolls ALL the way down a page.

This might help.

I've asked this in Chrome support but am not getting anything useful there.

Answer:Chrome - Touchpad causes random zooming and scroll jumping

Does the issue exist when using IE ?

Recommend you contact Lenovo customer support or look thru user's guide if available. May have to do with your preferred resolution setting. Another thought is to download the basic Chrome instead of Beta and Canary.

The scrolling function of my touchpad was disabled when I upgraded my Sony Vaio VGN-CS36GJ from Windows Vista to Windows Ultimate (64-bit). I already already tried installing Synaptics Pointing Driver for 64-bit but this just disabled my whole touchpad. So, I just uninstalled it. How do I resolve my problem with this scrolling function?

Hello, I have a problem with my touchpad on the new X1 Carbon under windows 7. The scrolling works only occasionally. When I try to scroll, the scrolling icon pops up but the Window which is scrolled is not the current one. For example I have to windows open on the right and left. The pointer is on the left window, I scroll and the right window scrolls. The same is when one window is over other. For example: I open Chrome over Outlook, I scroll the content in Chrome, but what actually scrolls are my emails in the background running Outlook.I already have the newest driver ? Synaptics 18.0.7.40, but the problem persists.Please assist.Thanks,Pawe?

hi MohsenBeheshti8,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you have a Synaptics Touchpad, can you check if you have a "Vertical Scrolling" feature Mouse Properties.

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron 14. 2Gb Memory Core2Duo.

I can;t scroll Sideways but I can going up and down.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Dell Touchpad not scrolling Sideways. But scrolling Up & Down

On both my Acer aspire one netbook (synaptics) and my Lenovo notebook (alps) I need to tab twice on the lower edge of the touchpad (to gain its attention?!?) and then it will scroll. Beyond that I believe you need to take a walk on the Dell support web site. There are number of 14xx models so you need to follow the steps there to find the freshest driver for your particular model. On both of mine the newest drivers have given scrolling as well as "pinching" to re-size pages, photos etc.
