    Gestures


    Okay, lets get this out of the way by saying Windows 8 is a convoluted mess in my eyes! I have spend all day looking for a way to get rid of the FREAKING mousepad scrolls!!! On my old Windows 7 computer I simply went to "Mouse" and, of course, there it was! Now, I have learned I have to copy a wall of text, paste it somewhere, save it, open it, copy it again, and so on and so forth. Windows 8, why? If someone could help this guy out I would greatly appreciate it! I know very, very little about computers! THANK YOU!!!

    I actually downloaded a program that acts as a "Start Menu." Now I don't know where those dumb-ass apps went!

    Hello,

    You could use the same method in the tutorial below, but uncheck the touchpad settings you want (ex: Gestures) to turn off instead.

    Problem


    I don't have "Wheel" or "Device Settings" on my "Mouse Properties" tab! I couldn't tell you why though. And it makes me quite angry as well! Thanks though!
