Windows 10: Why am I scrolling one page at a time?
Why am I scrolling one page at a time?
I am not sure where to post this but I guess I am wondering about performance. All seems to be working. Last December I built a new i7-4790k with 512GB SSD and 16 GB memory. I am using Windows 10 Pro...64 bit and all seems fast. My video card is an EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti FTW. This should be overkill as I do not play games.
So my problem is that on the web, I seem to get a page at a time, instead of a smooth scroll. I use Firefox, but now I see it is NOT a web issue. I see this in multi page Office 2013 documents and even Quicken. Is there some setting that I am missing that will load all it can and provide smooth scrolling instead of a page at a time brief delay?
Win 10 and my drivers are up to date.
Double check the Mouse Properties:
It is now set to 3 lines at a time. Also, even though I have a Wireless Logitech M325, it is showing Generic. Not sure it matters though.
I think my issue was not explained fully. I know I can change the number of lines the wheel scrolls, and even make it a page at a time. My issue is that as soon as I cross a page boundary...like scrolling to page 2 or 3 while looking at a Word Doc, for example, it pauses before showing the contents. Same with a browser. It is like it is buffering the data. Why can't I just scroll through a document regardless of the number of pages. It is like I only get ONE page at a time before loading the next page.
I have a M 325 too, have you Set Point installed, that seems to help me, specially when I turn on the add-on in the browsers.
Your System Specs say nothing about your computer so I'd speculate you haven't sufficient RAM/Random Access Memory or that your graphics adapter hasn't sufficient memory. That can result in the effect of buffering you mentioned. My first computer [in '92] had MS-DOS 5 and Windows 3.1 with WordPerfect 5 for Windows. It ran on 4MB RAM and a 120MB hard drive, first upgrade was to 8MB RAM as WordPerfect kept running out of memory at 8 pages of data and had to keep swapping out from RAM to the swapfile [temporary storage]. The swapfile worked the same as today's Virtual Memory or paging file.
I also have some Logitech M305 and M310 mice on hand, useful when working on Notebooks.
No, I still use the Generic mouse driver. I can d/l and install the Setpoint software. Not sure where to turn on the add-on in the browser. As I said, it seems like my system is pausing when going from page to page even in WORD. This is especially bad when there are graphics.

One more question: how's the battery?
It actually is NEW.
