Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro reverse scrolling direction

How can you do it? I find 'natural' scrolling extremely irritating.

Re: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro reverse scrolling direction

short answer: you can't.

 

long answer: uninstall the lenovo driver for the synaptics touch pad, find the original synaptics version on line and install that. then you'll have the option to switch it.

Have you done it? Any unintended consequences? Thanks for your help!

I haven't, no. Going to bite the bullet and try to get used to "natural" scrolling. But others on the notebookreview.com forums have done so successfully.

I did it fine on my old Dell laptop.

Many more options than what the Dell-sponsored driver had...

I just switched them out earlier this morning and everything's been working great! Here's the link to the driver you need:

The native driver and scrolling was bothering me as well, to the point of becoming very frustrated. I uninstalled the original and installed the app from Synaptics website and have been very pleased since.  You do not get two finger tap for menu, but do get two finger click for menu (right click).

I tried installing the old driver, and it does work, but there is one issue: The touchpad does not turn off in tablet and other modes, so if you touch it it jumps around. For this reason only I have gone back to the official driver, and I'll just have to get used to 'natural' scrolling.

Yeah, I decided to bite the bullet and get used to it. It seems like most new Windows devices are defaulting to that, and some, like the Y2P, have no option to change it. And of course Macs all work that way by default. I guess that's the new norm. I've pretty much gotten used to it by now.

Re: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro reverse scrolling direction

Have you found a work around for this?  The native synamptics driver is awesome, everything works how I want, except shutting off the touchpad when in tablet mode.  The F6 shortcut I think is supposed to shut off the touchpad as well, which doesn't work with the new driver either.
