Mouse wheel scroll - What a jerk!

  GibsonSt19 20:05 21 Sep 2004

Hi there, I have a Microsoft Wireless desktop setup, however whenever I use the mouse wheel to scroll down the page it does it it 'notches'. I'd like it to be a fluid movement. Anyone have a clue how I can get this sorted?

Thanks lots

In mouse properties, in control panel, click wheel and adjust to one line at a time...

But I want the mouse wheel to allow fluid screen scrolling, no notches, no lines, just liquid movement.

Are you saying that as you revolve the scroll wheel the window scrolls jerkily? Is there a facility to click downwards on the scoll wheel.My wireless mouse has this facility and clicking down on the wheel puts an icon on the window and then moving the body of the mouse forward or back gives a smooth scroll movement.Mine is not a microsoft mouse but most work in a similar manner.Hope this might be of help.

I can click the wheel to get the auto scroll feature, however I'd like the standard scroll movement of the mouse to be fluid. I know it can be done, but I just don't know how.

I dont think you will achieve this, you cant even do it dragging the bar down the side. As the page moves doesn`t it have to be re-drawn, this causing the problem ? or am i on the wacky baccy ?

Start / Control Panel / MOUSE click on this and look at everything you can do with the mouse!

Sorry i can`t help further. Have just checked the adjustments on mine and I can only adjust the number of lines moved with each move of the wheel. Its either 1-3 or 6. in my case. Regards, Meshuga.

Futher to my reply, since all mice that i`ve come aross click as you revolve the wheel you are gong to get a single movement of the lines so you are bound to get a series of moves,however fast they may be, so you would not get totally fluid movement. Meshuga.

Totally smooth.

You must have the only one that doesn´t click...and if it doesn`t click then it should be fluid if your finger is steady..
