  1. Random Scrolling Issues with Edge and Other Universal Apps

    I'm encountering a number of random scrolling issues within Edge and other Universal/Modern/Store apps. When scrolling a web page, the page gets "stuck" and won't move within the browser window. Edge itself remains responsive - I can reload the page, or close its tab. And other tabs remain unaffected. Also, links on the page itself still work. I can actually interact with the portion of the page that's visible, just not scroll it in any direction. Reloading the page doesn't fix it, but if I close the tab and reopen it, then load the page again, it works (happened just this morning on "" when viewing one of Scott Adams' blog entries).

    I've noticed this behavior in at least one other app: Readiy (an RSS reader app). In the main "All Items" view, the list of articles will often become "stuck," much like a web page in Edge. I've also noticed the behavior occurs more often when using the touchpad in the Type Cover of my Surface.

    Note: I'm running the Insider Preview build 10532 on a Surface 3 (not Pro) w/4GB RAM.

    Anyone encountering anything similar?

  2. jumping web pages

    Hi, I am having a problem with my browser jumping to other web pages when I scroll or click. This happens in Edge, internet explorer,and google. It happens with two different mice.and new drivers. It happens seemingly at random. What is causing this?

  3. Scrolling Inconsistency on Precision Trackpad

    I am using a Dell XPS 13 9343 with a precision touchpad. Running the November Update of Windows 10 and latest updates installed through release preview ring. There is no separate touchpad app, and all settings are embedded in the control panel->mouse and
    in settings-> devices->mouse and touchpad.

    The problem I'm facing is with scrolling. Legacy apps ( Chrome, windows media player, ms office) all scroll normally, and I can adjust how fast they scroll from the mouse settings in control panel. The Universal Windows Apps (Groove Music, Microsoft Edge)
    handles scrolling independent of the control panel. The problem is that scrolling in universal apps is very slow and there is no way to adjust it. Changing how many lines to scroll in control panel has no effect on modern apps.

    So, I end up with a fast scrolling on legacy apps and slow scrolling on modern apps. The experience is highly inconsistent.

    This problem is faced by all laptops with a precision touchpad. Is there any way to adjust the scrolling on modern apps on a precision touchpad?

    Yep, me too.

    I've given up on Edge for now, I've switched to Opera, works fine.
    I'll try it again after the next update.

    This is an old reported problem, but I'm still having the scrolling problem in the latest Win 10 1511 build.

    Happens frequently, when "stuck" I have found you need to move slider on side of screen to release lockup. Also see that scrolling is inconsistent even using Microsoft Sculpt mouse.
