windows 8 reverse scrolling

I have a T530 and I recently installed windows 8, which has reverse scrolling set as default.

Even after installing the new ultranav drivers and unchecking the reverse scrolling option in the scroll section, each time I restart the machine, the settings are lost and I get reverse scrolling back. Its as if the system never registers the choice!!

Anyone else noticed the same thing? Nothing in Lenovo support.

Re: windows 8 reverse scrolling

I found a solution by someotherguy on this thread that should help solve this issue. Make sure you UltraNav Driver is current, v16.2.14.0 the update can be found here.


While the default 2-finger scrolling behavior in Win8 is indeed backwards, the latest driver on the support website ( has an option to reverse the backwards Win8 behavior. Have you tried it?

Try setting AND clearing the checkbox to see if you can get the behavior you want. It seems the default behavior is very strange where 2-finger scrolling is backwards but 1-finger scrolling is correct. After setting and clearing the checkbox (and clicking Apply after each change).

Good Luck and please let me know if this solution helps you. Thank you for being a part of the Lenovo
