    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

    I signed up for the site just to thank you for that tip. Wow, that was really frustrating to not be able to scroll in the Windows Start menu. They should really fix that one. Thanks again, great catch!
