    Scrolling Windows 10

    I've found then when I'm scrolling up ofdown on my laptop using the trackpad, it opens the start menu. Is this a fault with my laptop or is it a windows 10 thing? Never had the problem before I installed windows 10.

    It's possible that W10 has changed the behaviour of the touchpad and you may have a region of the pad activated for the start menu.

    Here is the page in settings that you need to look at (type mouse in the search bar):

    Look at the additional mouse settings and see if there is a tab for your trackpad and its settings. On mine there is a section where I can enable/disable tap zones

    Its just possible that you may have been accidently touching the start menu zone without realizing it.
