    Scroll wheel changes sites in Edge


    I have recently noticed that when in Edge browser, if I roll the wheel on my mouse, it jumps to previously viewed pages. The only way to stop this is to left click on the page, then I can use the wheel to scroll down the page I'm viewing. Is there a setting somewhere to stop the page "hopping"? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 mouse scroll wheel issue

    Hi,

    There can be numerous causes of the issue that you're having with your mouse scroll wheel speed such as outdated drivers, dirt, damaged cables, and more. To correct such issue, we suggest that you adjust the scroll speed of your mouse wheel using the steps
    below:

    • Click Start > Settings.
    • Go to Devices > Mouse & touchpad.
    • Under Choose how many lines to scroll each time, move the slider to the right to make the speed of your mouse wheel faster.

    With regard to cleaning the inside of your mouse, you have to contact its manufacturer to get proper instructions.

  3. Mouse Scroll Wheel changes windows in some web sites

    Ever since Windows 10, I've notice that on some web pages, a scroll of the mouse's scroll wheel will scroll through recent web pages rather that scrolling up and down within the page I'm looking at. I cannot find an option to stop this either in Windows
    settings or in the settings for Edge or any other browsers. Is there a way to stop this? I DON'T WANT THE SCROLL WHEEL TO SWITCH WEB PAGES!
