    Speed Scrolling (word 2000)

    Help, please. I recall reading something in a newsletter a while back about what do do when trying to scroll and the pages shoot faster than a speeding bullet to the end, or beginning of the document. Was there a solution, or am I mis-remembering? Thanks, Pam

    This involves changing a Registry setting. This is not a "dangerous" one, but still, be careful when you edit the Registry. Here is what to do (adapted for Word 2000 from <!mskb=173220>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 173220<!/mskb>):

    Quit Word.
    In Windows, select Start | Run...
    Type regedit, then press Enter.
    Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then navigate to SoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0Word.
    Click the Options Key.
    Select Edit | New | String Value.
    Name the new value LiveScrolling.
    Double click LiveScrolling.
    Type the value 1, then click OK, and exit RegEdit.

    Scrolling through a Word document should now be smoother.

    Hans's solution is probably better, but there is Auto Scroll available (Tools, Customise, Commands, Tools, then drag Auto Scroll onto a Toolbar). When you click the Auto Scroll button you get an alternative Scroll Bar with variable speed scrolling, but it takes a lot of practice to master it.

    There are two scrolling speeds when using the mouse. If you keep the mouse just above or below the page, it will scroll more slowly than if you move it further up or down. i.e. To use the slower speed when selecting text, move the mouse down to the horizontal scrollbar area or up to the ruler bar. To use the faster speed, move the mouse above or below those positions. However, using the mouse like that is not very accurate. It's much easier to:
    1. Press F8 & then use arrow up or down or page up or down.
    2. Hold the shift key down & use the arrows or page up or down.
    3. Click the mouse & then use the scrolling wheel on the mouse.
    4. You can also press F8 & then use GoTo (Ctrl=G) to move up or down.
    5. You can also press F8 & then use the Find dialog box to select an item.
    6. Click the mouse to place the cursor at a spot & then drag the vertical scroll bar button until you see where you want to go. The hold the shift key down & click the mosue there.
