    Fix for Mouse not scrolling in start menu

    Following the last windows update I had an issue where my Logitech Mouse (actually Mice, I tried more than one ) would not scroll correctly in the Start menu area.

    The scrolling worked everywhere else that I tried and actually worked if I pointed the mouse at the scroll bars

    I have found the fix and thought I would share as Logitech hardware is popular

    Open the Start Menu and navigate to Settings - Devices - Mouse & Touchpad and make sure that the "Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them" option is ticked.

    It cleared my issue instantly, I can only assume that the status of this option was either added or reversed by an update as it always used to work

    Hope this helps
