What determines if Start Screen auto scrolls to the right?

  1. #11

    Well, most of the machines I have run Windows 8 on have been dual monitor setups on laptops and the scroll is not working on the right and left edges.

    We got some AiO's into the office and I noticed the scroll worked on them automatically. I also noticed my single desktop windows 8 test box scrolls too (I never noticed before because I don't have enough tiles to warrant scrolling).

    That's odd, the mouse scrolling should work regardless of anything. Maybe the tile count is preventing you from doing so? Did you try making all sorts of tile groups and mousing over?

    but how would Windows 8 know whether I wanted the second screen or wanted to scroll. I think that is why it doesn't work with dual monitors.

Highlights instead of scrolls?
I've noticed that quite often when using my digitizer stylus to swipe thru an open document or to scroll up or down a web page that instead of scrolling it just highlights everything as though I want to copy something. I don't have this issue when using my finger. Is there a setting I'm missing?
