Horizontal scrolling issue

Whenever I scroll horizontally in an Excel workbook, left or right, the scroll bar continues to scroll after I stop, as to snap the column it thinks I'm landing on all the way to the left.
it won't let me scroll and stop it where I want to, it's like it is assuming I didn't stop scrolling where I wanted to so it decides to force me to scroll a bit farther forward or back.

This is causing me issues with being able to select columns as to resize because when it puts the column all the way to the left, I can't select the column's border line to hold and resize.

maybe I'm approaching this wrong but this auto-snap-scroll wasn't in previous versions I used (that I can remember).

Have you tried using the middle click on a mouse instead?

Tried middle mouse click button right now, it will scroll precisely, but when I release, it auto-scrolls to snaps the nearest column all the way too the left, so that the grey line between that column and the one before it is out of sight.

Yeah it's so weird, I just can't scroll right or left like a pixel at a time, it has to scroll right or left per entire column only. Only if I zoom out to like 85% after I scrolled can I then see the vertical line separating columns in order to click them and resize.

Same thing appears to be the case with vertical scrolling now that I just noticed it

You could always try going to control panel and changing your mouse settings from whatever it is (probably 3 lines at a time) to 1 line at a time. The only disadvantage of this is that it'll affect other programs too. You could always switch it back when you're done with Excel. Not the best way to do it but it's something for now.

It looks like I can't get around the auto-snapping to column or row. But your advice on precise scrolling will have to suffice.
