    Hello delicate,

    AutoScroll would be a mouse setting instead. You might double check your mouse settings to see if has an option like for my mouse below to turn off or select a different task for the middle button instead.

    Hope this helps,

    How about with your touchpad settings for it's middle button?

    If you have anything similar to mine, just switch around the settings and see whether it helps:

    ugh, am I forced to install the whole stupid invasive touchpad drivers/package ? its like 30 mbs & I try to keep my registry as light as possible. I believe there should be another way of achieving this, I also disabled the touchpad in the bios settings since it interfers with my palm & the fingers touching the first right/left click buttons near the alphanumeric keys

    Using the touchpad settings from it's installed software/driver is the only way that I know of to adjust them.

    You could get a 2 button mouse with a scroll wheel.
    Or not.
