    scrolling search suggestions in MyMSN in IE11

    Not quite sure how to describe this so attached is an image of the Bing/WebSearch bar I am having a problem with. The problem is that, when scrolling up or down through search suggestions, scrolling up/down is every-other line instead of every line. I don't have this scrolling problem anywhere else nor in MyMSN via Google Chrome.

    I switched to Google Chrome but, as much as there are pros and cons to both browsers, I prefer IE.

    Here's what I've done so far (not necessarily in this order):
    • Reset IE to defaults.
    • Switched PC Settings' Mouse and Touchpad's Roll the mouse wheel to scroll between "multiple lines at a time" = 1 and "One screen at a time" which seemed to solve it but then goes right back to skipping lines.
    • Verified that Control Panel's Mouse's Vertical Scrolling's "Roll the wheel one notch to scroll" is set to 1.

    I believe this is what you need to know but I'm sure there's more:
    IE 11 version 11.0.9600.17239 (set to automatically install new versions)

    Hi there. How to repair or reinstall Internet Explorer in Windows

    If you use System File Checker (SFC): SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    May I suggest an easier method of searching with Bing > WinKey/S from anywhere or tapping/mousing the magnifying glass at the top right on Start Screen will bring up the Search Bar in the "Everything" mode > Type what your looking for > Press Enter key > A page will appear with results > Push on a result and your default browser will automatically open to the web site. You may always go back the results page for reference. Tapping/mousing the "Results for" in the upper left will take it back to the Search Bar for to refine your search if desired. Or you may start a fresh search and save all search results pages. Very handy feature indeed.

    BTW, WnKey/F for file search. WnKey/W for Settings search. WnKey/Q for search using Bing with results in IE.
