Reverse scrolling direction when using Trackpoint

2018-05-19, 19:55 PM

The settings for the Microsoft Precision Touchpad on my T470s include the option to reverse the normalling scrolling direction, called "natural scrolling".

 

I have gotten used to reverse-scrolling or "natural scrolling" thanks to my iOS devices, the option to reverse in Windows, and it messes with me when I have to think about it when using the Trackpoint.

 

Is there a way to reverse the scrolling, perhaps via a registry key?

 

Before Windows 10 introduced the feature for trackpads and mice, there was a way to enable reverse scrolling via scripting. I may have to try that for this.

 

Should we ask Lenovo to include this optionin a driver update for Trackpoint devices?

I can report that installing AutoHotkey and then using the following script:

 

WheelUp::
Send {WheelDown}
Return

WheelDown::
Send {WheelUp}
Return

 

You can effectively reverse the scrolling direction on the Trackpoint.

 

Install AutoHotkey and save the above as AutoHotkey.ahk in your Documents folder or where you install AutoHotkey.

 

I would still prefer to have the option in the driver though.

I have started a github repo here to summarize the solution.
