Question Stop auto scrolling of mouse
When I depress my mouse wheel in Thunderbird, and MS Excel a small circle with arrows appears and than just moving the mouse causes the screen to scroll.
I find that irritating and would like to know how to disable that feature.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Change the mouse settings. What do you want to happen when you click the scroll wheel?

DoubleHelix Thanks for the response. I would just like to use the mouse to scroll manually like other applications allow. Now once I press on the mouse wheel a little to try to scroll, the infamous little circle appears with arrows inside which now moves the page by just moving the mouse as opposed to scrolling with the wheel.

I hope I am being clear trying to explain it. I did check the mouse in the control panel but find nothing that addresses this problem.

I'm thinking because it seems to be limited to Thunderbird and Excel. it may have to be addressed there.
What do you think?

Whats the make and model of the mouse? Go to the manufacturers site and download and install the software for the mouse. This will give you the option to fine tune the mouse to the way you like it.

You don't press down on the wheel and click it to scroll. You just scroll. Clicking the scroll wheel performs an action.

I try not to press the wheel but it seems to have a hair trigger.
If I'm really careful I can get it not to slip into that mode, but that requires more concentration than I want to concentrate on. In Firefox under Options/Advanced there are selections to turn auto scroll off. That is why I don't have any problems there, but it appears TB doesn't offer that option. Bummer.

You need to configure this at the mouse software level.

Post the full make and model of the mouse.
