Windows 10: Reverse scrolling

    Reverse scrolling


    Windows updated this morning and now the touchpad is scrolling in reverse. I have an ASUS and have gone into the ASUS Smart Gesture settings but whether "content moves reversely" is checked or unchecked, it has no effect on which direction the touchpad scrolls. I restarted but same thing.

    I run these from elevated (run as administrator) powershell window to reverse trackpad direction - you could try that.

    The top line is for reversing up and down and the bottom for left/right.
    Code:
    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopWheel -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopWheel 1 }
    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopHScroll -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopHScroll 1 }
    You can undo it by changing the 1 to 0 (shown in red above)...

    Nope, no change. "Undid" it (even though nothing changed) too, but still no change.

    Btw it's the vertical scrolling that's reversed- since Windows default is now more like touch screen scrolling, up on the touchpad shows content further down on the page. I prefer the standard down on the touchpad = down on the page.

    I do it for the same reason as you (my drivers have no option to reverse direction) as I like it the same as you..

    Did you sign out or restart after running the script? I forgot to mention that you do need to.

    If it still doesn't work after doing that hopefully someone with ASUS can help (I have Apple).

    I did not restart the first time, but just did the command again and restarted but still no change. Any other ASUS users out there? I'll see if I can find an ASUS forum as well.
