  1. How do I change scrolling orientation with trackpad


    Just the title. I have a MacBook Pro with Windows 10 on bootcamp, and it is annoying for me that in macOS and every touch device I have the "natural" way of scrolling (moving my fingers up moves down), however in Win10 it is inverted and I want to change it, but I haven't found any helpful guide in internet. So, how do I change that?

    Mouse scroll number of lines setting doesn't change trackpad scroll

    Hello. I am using a new HP envy 13, and am trying to change the scroll speed settings of the trackpad. I have always done that with the usual setting:
    How do I change scrolling orientation with trackpad 411223d2-4951-4006-b36d-befc8cff535b?upload=true.png


    But on this new device, the trackpad scrolling doesn't respond at all to changes in this setting. The scroll speed remains the same.

    • I tried plugging in a real mouse, and the real mouse scroll did respond to changes in this setting
    • I tried updating the synaptics precision touchpad drivers, and it says it's already up to date
    • I tried changing other settings in mouse/touchpad, such as tap to click and mouse cursor speed, and the trackpad does respond to those changes

    Otherwise the trackpad seems to be working fine. I couldn't really find any threads on google search describing this same issue. I bought this device online and have not tried any other envy devices in-person yet. I would appreciate if anybody has some thoughts
    on this.

    Thanks.

  3. Precision Trackpad Scrolling Broken Since Creators Update

    This is a revival of
    this thread
    . It was locked for an unknown reason, despite the issue clearly still being relevant.


    Ever since over a year ago when the initial Creators Update dropped, scrolling on precision trackpads has been a hot mess. The effects of the update include:

    • Certain applications experience extreme stutter while scrolling with a precision trackpad(example). The graphics seem to only update when
      there is a decent break in between scroll events.
    • Applications such as Windows Explorer, Notepad, Notepad++, etc that would have normally scrolled line-by-line at a fast rate now scroll several lines at a time(depending on the value in Settings>Devices>Mouse) at a slow rate. This leads to much less precise
      scroll that you would expect from a precision trackpad. Windows Explorer has since been specifically fixed in the Fall Creators Update, but all other applications are left in the dust.

    It's been said that the reason for these issues is due to precision trackpads now using mouse scroll events, in contrast to the previous method of directly manipulating scrollbars just as touchscreens do. While it does seem to make sense to use actual scroll
    events, the previous method of scrolling provided a vastly better experience.

    This thread is meant to be both a question and a suggestion. The suggestion being to revert back to the old method of scrolling. The question being, is there any (even hacky) method to restore old precision trackpad scrolling functionality? It's been over
    a year now, and it's been thoroughly frustrating to not have any fix for this.
