    Turn Off Browser Scrolling When by Space Bar is Pressed

    Windows 10 Pro 1709, MS Surface Book, Chrome and IE Browser.

    Any time I have Chrome or IE browser open the screen scrolls down one page each time I press the keyboard Space Bar, then up one page when I press Shift+Space Bar

    When I am typing on a web page I'll often inadvertently touch the Space Bar, the screen scrolls then the page I am typing on moves off screen out of view. It is very annoying.

    How do I turn this feature OFF.

    Thanks in advance.

    OK....and the solution is? It is not the browser then?

    It does not do it on any of my several Windows 7 machines.
