How to reverse mouse scrolling direction on Windows 10

Or you may like it in an inverted way. If you are looking to reverse the scrolling direction of your mouse, then you will have to follow a tricky little procedure mentioned in this post. Touchpads are generally more customizable, and that is quite evident from the number of settings they are available with. You can configure everything including gestures, taps, sensitivity and even the scrolling direction.

To reverse existing scrolling direction, follow these steps:. The settings will be applied instantly, and you will be able to recognize the change.

It is quite simple to change scrolling settings for a touchpad, but it is not the case for mice. As mentioned, these steps are a little complex and involve modifying the registry. Once opened, locate your Mouse under Mice and other pointing devices. It is usually named as HID-compliant mouse. Make a note of the value displayed under the value field.

Under this folder start matching the values the first part of the value you noted in step 5. Open the folder which has the same value. To reverse the scrolling direction, invert its value from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0. Restart your computer for changes to take place.

[Solved]Invert/Reverse 2 Two finger Touchpad scrolling direction Reverse Reversed Scroll Synaptics

First let's demonstrate two-finger scrolling in the vertical axis, which works as expected: - On the touch pad, perform a two-finger scrolling gesture in an upwards direction. This is as expected.

So in the vertical axis, two-finger scrolling works as expected. Now do the same test with two-finger scrolling in the horizontal axis, which doesn't work as expected: - On the touch pad, perform a two-finger scrolling gesture from left to right. This is opposite of what is expected. I dont agree with you.

This is what we expect, and it is what any other applications behave. So, not a bug. Anyway, I dont think libreoffice can determine the touchpad guesture issue. It may be up to your touchpad driver settings?

Comment 5 Kevin Suo UTC Comment hidden no-value Some more info : Based on my experience, on mobile phone screens, two figure scroll left-to-right will move the screen left-to-right. However touchpad of a notebook is different - it moves the scroll bar left-to-right, rather than move the content left-to-right. Applications just like firefox behave the same way. It is not a touch pad issue, and the behavior you're describing is not what's expected.

The expected behavior standard across all applications and all platforms is that a two-finger scroll on a touch pad drags the sheet, NOT the scroll bar. Remember that the sheet and the scroll bar move in opposite directions from each other. With a two-finger scroll on a touch pad, the expected behavior is that the sheet moves in the direction of the gesture, which means the scroll bars move in the opposite direction. This is standard across all applications, and in fact LibreOffice does it correctly in the vertical axis.

It's only in the horizontal axis that LibreOffice has it wrong.

This is a bug, and needs to be fixed for LibreOffice to be 1 self-consistent, and 2 consistent with expected behavior across all applications. I will again describe the behavior, this time including also the behavior of the scroll bars for further clarity. Please read this carefully: To reproduce: Open any LibreOffice application. Perhaps Draw makes this most clear. Again, the expected behavior, in either axis, is that the sheet moves with the gesture, not the scroll bar.

I respectfully disagree. I'm running on a notebook currently an HP Envy running Win8. I just tried this in Firefox, since you mentioned it. Firefox behaves correctly per my definition. The sheet, not the scroll bar, moves with the gesture. This behavior is configurable on my touchpad under Linux. I guess it is configurable on Windows too. Best regards.

However, this not the point. Whichever way Windows is configured, LibreOffice will behave the opposite way of all other applications under that configuration. So I can reverse the global setting in Windows to make LibreOffice behave "correctly", but then all other applications behave incorrectly. To re-iterate, we don't need to debate which direction is "right" or "wrong".

As you pointed out, that preference can be changed in a global setting in the OS. The problem is the inconsistency among applications -- that LibreOffice does the opposite of all other applications. Horizontal scrolling in LO, however, does not do anything. In Firefox as in file explorer, horizontal scrolling left moves the scrollbar left, right moves the bar right. So it seems the reporter's claim of standard behavior does not hold water.

The behavior is apparently device-specific or OS-specific. At least on my Lenovo, two-finger scrolling is not about moving freely on a canvas in 4 directions. It is simply scrolling, like the name and the cursor helpers imply. Roee: Can you confirm the behavior Beluga describes in comment 11? Please make sure to include the version of Firefox that y'all are using in your tests. Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone! I'm currently using Firefox version And the correct behavior as I've described has been unchanged with every version for at least the past couple of years.
