    Scrolling wheel inverted how to restore normal!!!!!!!!


    I got my scrolling wheel inverted due to powershell command i tried to check how it feels in the inverted way.
    but now i'm not feeling good and i want to go back to my normal scrolling.
    if i scroll down it should go down and up for up vice versa.
    please help me out!!!!!!!

    That was me sorry it is backwards but it is east to change back.

    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopWheel -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopWheel 0 }

    Zero is normal scrolling direction and 1 is inverted (like a ipad). You can also change FlipFlopHScroll which changes the direction of horizontal scrolling.

    You can see here for for details. Reverse Scrolling on Windows 8 | kevinbecker.org

    CurrentControlSet or ControlSet001? ControlSet001 is the last time you booted I think. You might want to update the key in CurrentControlSet and reboot.

    Logitech mouse drivers have an option called natural scrolling in the set point app, if this is a logitec device you might try this and see if it helps. If it's not a Logitech you may still find this option available in a manufacturer specific mouse driver
