    How do I change scroll direction of a mouse NOT listed under Mice?


    I have a new computer (Dell) and have never before had a PC (Macs only). I connected my favorite mouse, a Logitech M325, and it's working in the normal way. But I want to change the scroll direction to Natural Scrolling - what I'm used to. I've followed the directions available online. Under Mice - Hardware in Control Panel, there's just one mouse listed, an HID-Compliant mouse. First, I assumed that was the one I was using, so I changed it. Turns out that applied to the wired mouse that came with the computer and its scroll direction was successfully changed, as I found out when I plugged it back in. So these directions would work with my computer, but my mouse just isn't showing up as an HID-compliant mouse in the Mice area. I think I found it though...listed as a keyboard. And keyboards don't appear to have a path with a numeric string where I could change the digit to reverse scrolling. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to fix the scrolling - either how to get my mouse to show up in the Control Panel as a mouse, or a work-around. Thanks.

    Hi, there's a support group here:
    Wireless Mouse M325 - Logitech Support

    Do you have a driver installed for your mouse? Normally that would be automatic when you first plugged it in.

    Here is the driver: you could try explicitly installing it.

    Thanks! There's no driver - available downloads are SetPoint and Logitech Unifying Software. I previously downloaded the Unifying software which didn't have any effect; now I'll download SetPoint and see if that adds the option I need.

    Also suggest it's worth reviewing the FAQs to see if there's anything useful:

    Thanks; yes, those are great directions and did work to change the direction of the wired mouse that came with the computer. But the mouse I'm using doesn't show up as a mouse in the hardware list, so I can't follow the rest of those steps. I need the mouse to appear on the list of mice in order to complete this sequence.

    Have you tried uninstalling the mouse already listed, then restarting your PC with this mouse connected?
