Mouse scrolling wheel not always functioning

  compumac 18:28 11 Jan 2017

Why should my Microsoft mouse suddenly loose the ability to scroll using the wheel - but only within some web pages including this forum?

Just found out that scrolling works perfectly OK in Edge but not always in IE11. ???

Have you tried turning off "Use smooth scrolling" - Tools, Internet Options, Advanced?

You have hit on the nose!

I was not aware of that option and certainly had not changed it to ON.

Thanks for that.

It may have been on by default. Glad it worked.

Thanks, but the problem has only shown itself in the past week or so.
