This is why I dislike Windows - 15 steps to reverse scroll on mouse!!

I'm having to use a PC laptop until the new hotness M1MAX arrives, sigh...

My trusty iHome mouse scrolls in the wrong direction. How do I correct that? Surely it's just a checkbox in the Mouse settings. NOPE.

[answers.microsoft.com]

1. In the search box, type Device Manager and click on the result.
2. Select Mice and other pointing devices and double-click your mouse.
3. Go to the Details tab, select Device instance path from the drop-down menu.
4. Right-click the value that shows in the Value box and select Copy.
5. Press OK and close the Device Manager window.
6. Open a Notepad or Word so you can take note of the VID ID, then paste it from there. We’ll be using the VID ID as a reference for the next steps.
7. In the search box, type regedit and click the result.
8. Go to this registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enue\HID.
9. This is where we’ll uses the VID ID. Click the key that matches the VID ID that was copied earlier.
10. Select Device Parameters.
11. Select and double-click FlipFlopWheel.
12. Change the Value data from 0 to 1 and press OK.
13. Close the Registry Editor windows.
14. Restart your device to reflect the changes.
15. Check the result.

I mean it worked, but OH COME ON. banghead smiley
