Good point danny0001uk. I've never activated it before and have just tried it and noticed no difference to my scrolling.

Just tried Google. 1000s of hits. Those I read all seem to say that this key dos'nt work with more recent apps. Seems to be reduntdant now.

When I use my centre mouse wheel to scroll automatically and I press Scroll Lock it stops the scrolling (does this make sense!!)

I use Excel a lot and through your link I've finally found a use for Scroll Lock. Ta.

Peverelli. I just typed "scroll lock" into Google (Long live Google!) and it was one of the first one's in the list. Glad to be of help.

Sounds silly but this will be v-useful to me. I wonder if it works in Access as well.
