MS Sculpt Mouse wheel scrolling issue

I dock my Surface (Pro 3, I7, Win 8.1) tablet into two identically configured USB 3 docking stations. Each station has a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard and mouse combo. The mouse wheel scroll rate (the rate at which Internet Explorer scrolls downwards when you rotate the wheel) is significantly different between the two docks. On one of the systems, the scroll wheel seems to require many more turns to achieve the same scrolling distance.

Why would the settings be different? What can I do to correct the problem?

Scroll rate is a property in Mouse Settings in Control Panel. For my Mouse, it is in the Wheel tab. Look there and set both machines the same.

Hi John. Thanks for the prompt reply.

" Look there and set both machines the same. " - But there is only one machine.

Anyway. I followed your instructions but went to the "MS Mouse and keyboard center" where I could set the vertical scrolling rate to medium (it was set to slow).

I wonder if these settings are tied to the specific mouse and keyboard so that they'd be different when I return home and plug in to the dock with the other MS sculpt comfort mouse and keyboard.

I think the settings are tied to the operating system and not maintained in the mouse / keyboard hardware. So the settings would have to be changed to match the user in each machine.
