    Question Turn off Virtual Scroll

    I have google searched this to no end and cannot find an answer that works.

    I am on a desktop computer running Windows 7. When I turn my mouse wheel up or down a few clicks, it goes into this virtual scroll mode where if you move the mouse any direction, whatever is on the screen moves that direction also. Searching online, most people refer to it as virtual scroll. But all the help I find on it talks about touchpad settings for a laptop computer, and again, I am on a desktop.

    This is annoying as all get out. The computer only started doing this earlier this week, and I don't know what made it change this behavior.

    Please help me stop this...

    SGB,

    Welcome to the lounge as a new poster!

    What you are most likely doing is Pressing the mouse wheel which will turn your cursor to this:

    Pressing it again will take it out of that mode and back to normal scrolling.

    Okay, I see that know, but for some reason it must be thinking that I am also pressing it when just turning the wheel.

    Isn't there just some way to turn it off?

    SGB,

    That depends on the mouse software you have installed. Try typing Mouse into the search bar and see what comes up or go to Control Panel -> Mouse.
