Windows 8 scrolling reversed?

Recommended Posts

On my HP laptop, I can put two fingers on my touchpad and slide them down to scroll the page down. However, on Windows 8, it is reversed. If I slide my two fingers down, it'll make the page go up. Its really annoying and counter-intuitive. Is there a fix for this?

Wonder if it is a driver issue for the touch pad...

I doubt it's a driver issue. I know this is the way OS X is setup but there is a setting to change it. I don't know enough about Windows 8 to say if there's a setting for this though.

Nope, I tried installing the drivers thinking the same thing.

Saw something about that on google.

Just think in your head "I'm pushing the paper down, and moving up the page" :P (like a smartphone), maybe that's why it's like that :huh:

That's why they have it setup like that in OSX. It's meant to be like in IOS where you touch the screen.

I can change this in my mousepad settings. You likely have a synaptic touchpad - its under the scrolling settings. I can reverse the directions.
