Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

compared to the inability to scroll with your mouse wheel without having focused the windows first. The last time I checked in Windows 7 it doesn't happen by default. Rather nasty behaviour.

Easy fix is to turn on the x-mouse features of Windows.

Personally, I think that's the only way to roll.

This has bothered me most since switching back to Windows. Often times, the only way to get focus is to activate something in the panel you are going into, or to start scrolling by clicking on the scrollbar, which begins an unwanted scroll.
