    What a BS response to OP's question! Quite a many of us really like various Modern Apps, me included. Not in a long time have I wished so much that we could give negative rep.

    Even if "we" did hate something, we don't welcome a new member here telling that we hate the app he / she is using but maybe someone can help later.

    Thinking and use of the brain is allowed here, I recommend you try it.

    Hi Humayun891, welcome to the Eight Forums.

    Do you have a mouse with scroll wheel? If so, does scrolling with the mouse wheel work? Also please notice that in some Modern Apps the scrolling goes left and right instead of up and down, so if you are using arrow keys to scroll you could try left and right arrows instead of up and down.

    I had to flip my scrolling direction to use Modern Apps nicely. You could try that - it worked for me.

    From Powershell enter

    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopWheel -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopWheel 1 }

    sure change it back to 0 - the number at the end.
