Hi Experts,
Here is what one would think a simple fix, but for the life of me I can not find an answer.

When Scrolling in Excel (Office 365- 2013) I want adjust how the mouse scroll wheel acts. Right now it scrolls 3 rows per one scroll on the mouse, and is not smooth.

I have disabled the "Animate controls and elements inside windows" setting in control panel-system-advanced system settings-advanced-performance-settings, this does nothing for me.

Is there a way to adjust this for Office only? Without messing with the mouse for the entire OS? ( Windows 7)

Thanks
Chris

Have you checked the mouse button settings in Control Panel?

I believe there is an option for lines per scroll of the wheel and the default as you have found is 3 lines.

Hi Rob,
Yes in the control panel it is there. But I was looking for something specific in Office not the entire operating system.
Its a pain when you have wide columns on a page and you roll the mouse once and it jumps 2 pages.
Thanks
