    Mouse Properties Interfere with Logitech Gaming Mouse Settings


    Win 10 Prof. I use a Logitech gaming mouse G900 for regular mousing and photography editing. It has a tilt wheel left and right which I've assigned to copy and paste. This works fine. However, when I use the scroll wheel to scroll, it often acts as if it is the tilt wheel in the regular HID mouse settings in Win 10. Therefore it will alter an entry I made on a website instead of just scrolling the page.

    For example, if I enter the #2 in box when placing an order, and then scroll up or down the page, it ends up changing the number I just entered. Hope this is clear?

    Control Panel/Mouse/mouse properties/wheel tab - Vertical Properties no problem. Horizontal Properties setting is used when entering a number into a fill-in box on a website even though I'm actually just using normal vertical scrolling.

    I would like to convince Win 10 mouse properties to let me set horizontal properties to 0 or convince it that there is no tilt wheel, when in fact there is. I'm imagining I could do this in the registry but I don't know where to go. Or, if anyone has another suggestion, that would be great too.

    Thanks.

    Hi mlg

    I think I understand what is happening and I think it is normal. When you've typed in a boxed the focus is in that box. So when you scroll it thinks you want to scroll in that box. You have to tell the form you are finished with that box.

    So just before you scroll, click outside the box, once, to move the focus back to the overall form. Then use wheel.

    I may not be understanding the issue 100%. Just ignore if I'm not understanding.

    Thank you - Solved


    I tried carefully being sure to click outside a box before scrolling and that worked fine. Thanks a lot for figuring it out and explaining it.
