Scrolling with a wheel mouse

  Abel 19:03 10 Feb 2007

I posted earlier today and got a solution to my problem within minutes. Fantastic! Another problem I'm having which again to those who know the answer will be simple, but try as I might, I can't find the solution. When scrolling with my wheel mouse in Excel 2003, instead of going up and down the sheet vertically it scrolls diagonally from top left to bottom right and vice versa. Could somebody tell me how I can overcome this please. Again, thanks in advance

Do you have a tilt wheel with horizontal scrolling enabled? If so try reducing the horizontal scrolling speed. Otherwise it can be difficult to avoid scrolling diagonally.

Hello VoG™. I don't think my mouse has a tilt wheel, it certainly doesn't appear to have. When I press the wheel, a star like character appears on the screen which enables me move, via the mouse ball, either up, down or sideways.

Abel, have you tried just turning the wheel and not pressing down hard while you turn the wheel.

My mouse gives me the star like character if I press the wheel and then I can move in any direction. Pressing the wheel again reverts the mouse to normal operation. You should not see the star like character in normal use.

Thanks Justme. I understand exactly what you say but the diagonal scrolling occurs without the star character in play. In other words, just by turning the mouse wheel without pressing down on it.
