    Mouse scroll stopped working

    Suddenly the scroll wheel doesn't work. I've got a Dell 8500 PC, a Dell USB mouse and Windows 10. Everything has been fine, but suddenly the mouse is haywire. I tried updating my Dell drivers, checked the mouse settings in Windows 10 and turned off the "Scroll on inactive screen" setting. None of these worked.

    P.S. I suspect Windows 10 suddenly thinks I have a tablet or a touch pad. How can I fix this?
