    Lightbulb Spin that wheel, Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Again, if, you, already, know this, just pretend you never read it, here.
    And, I, really could have, maybe, should have mentioned this long ago.

    Let's say:
    1. You have a non-Touch PC or laptop.
    2. Your mouse has a wheel (pretty common)
    3. You select an APP, such as News, Photos, Games... anything w/ heaps of content to the right ----->
    4. There is a scroll bar @ the bottom that can be grabbed to move ----> to view the content.
    BUT... (you don't need to use it)
    5. Spinning the wheel towards you (normally, go down) will move the screen to the right ----->
    6. Spinning the wheel away from you (normally, go up) will move the screen to the left <--------
    Just like you were swiping your finger across it.
    Wheeeeeeeeee, don't have bother trying to grab & move the bar. Much easier, smoother & more accurate w/ using the wheel.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    In Windows 7 my wheel does that too so long as there is not vertical scroll bar.

    No bugs here. Oh wait, just saw a spider!

    Seriously Win 8 RP is very close to the finished code. The last rumor is RTM by end of July. Once RTM hits, no major changes, just updates. It has been pretty smooth sailing. From my perspective (I don't use Metro apps hardly at all) IE 10 beta is the biggest unfinished part of Win 8 RP. A few small irritations, but nothing major.
    BACKUP...BACKUP...BACKUP

    From my experience, if you cant find a bug in the software. You are not using it to its full extent.

    I've been beta-testing CP & RP for MS. Whatever we've found is insignificant. If & when we find something of any consequence...

    Still, good to investigate it... no real commitment, since, it's, still, only beta.

    But, no matter, being able to scroll across an APP w/ the mouse wheel, is nice, rather than using the scroll bar.

    Cheers,
    Drew
