    How to Reverse One Finger Touchpad Scrolling

    Hi everyone, brand new Windows 8 user here.

    Is there a way to reverse the one finger scrolling on a new laptop? I reversed it for the two finger scrolling in the touchpad settings but there wasn't a similar checkbox for the one finger.

    Am I missing something obvious?

    I guess I should have been more clear. This is not a tablet or touch screen computer, but a regular laptop with a touchpad. I think this thread may have been moved in error, but if not I will be quiet. I got the touchpad to scroll down when swiping down with two fingers, but it still scrolls up when swiping down using one finger on the right side of the touchpad. I keep reading a reference to a gear and buttons that don't look like buttons, but so far the only menu I have found is the Mouse Settings > Device Settings Tab > Settings button.

    Your help is appreciated.

Native reverse mouse scrolling?
Anyone know how to do this natively? I can find scripts that can run at startup to achieve this but I was wondering if there was something that can be configured in Windows. THanks.
