When using the mouse wheel to scroll in Excel it gets "stuck"
1) I select cell a14 which is in the middle of the left edge of spreadsheet.
2) I depress and tilt the wheel to the right to start scrolling, A funky Icon appears that looks like this:
3) While depressed, the mouse moves the arrowhead which changes the scroll direction from right scroll to up or down or left. (the box stays static)
4) when I let go of the mouse scrolling stops.
When it gets stuck I can let go of the mouse completely, but the screen keeps scrolling until I strike the escape key on the keyboard.
I have a feeling that this is actually a "feature" that I am accidentally invoking. I don't think it is a hardware problem like dirt or lint.
Can anybody explain the behavior ?
I am using a Dell Mouse that does not have a model number on it, but I see DP/N:0XN967 above the serial number.
The Control Panel shows it is HID Compliant, and the track Wheel has horizontal scrolling set to 1.
