Hardware Drivers :: Get Smooth Scrolling In Metro App With Mouse Wheel?
Jul 1, 2012
I want to know how to get smooth scrolling in metro app with mouse wheel. I'hv seen some videos of windows 8 it has really smooth - fluid scrolling with touch. I have smooth scoll in start but not in metro apps.
I got my scrolling wheel inverted due to powershell command i tried to check how it feels in the inverted way. but now i'm not feeling good and i want to go back to my normal scrolling. if i scroll down it should go down and up for up vice versa.
I'm having a problem with getting the mouse wheel button to work correctly in 8.1
I've switched to left handed use to alleviate shoulder pain.
Before this I had the mouse and keyboard center installed. I use a cheap USB keyboard and a microsoft USB optical wheel mouse. Configured for the right hand, everything works correctly. The right button is the normal select, the right is context and I configured the wheel button to double click.
When I switch to left hand I lose the wheel button double click. The select / context buttons are properly working, but when I click the wheel it appears to be the same as a context button click. I thought maybe the settings got messed up when I switched the buttons so I tried setting the wheel button to another function (open charms in this case). That works. Switched the wheel button back to double click and it goes back to open context menu.
I uninstalled and re-installed the mouse and keyboard center. That made no difference. Seems like a bug here.
On, this is on a new (mid-april) HP laptop so there is a touchpad that I almost never use because I generally have the mouse, keyboard, and external monitor attached with the lid closed.
Mouse click to invoke Metro UI If you have a mouse with programmable buttons: The Windows Key is 'ctrl-esc' I have a Logitech mouse with programmable buttons. In the Logitech button settings you can program any button to go to the Metro UI:
1.) Go to your mouse settings; 2.) Choose a button; 3.) Select 'Keystroke Assignment; 4.) in the resulting 'Specify Keystroke' - Keystroke window: 5.) Simultaneously press Ctrl and Esc. 6.) Note: In the Logitech example, you cannot use your keyboard key-by-key to enter ctrl+esc. You must simultaneously press the control and escape key in the above window. [Hold down ctrl and esc] Worked for me.
Explanation:Windows 8 dumped me into the old W7 desktop when I exited an application -- even if I started the application in Metro UI. Then I had to go back to keyboard to press Windows key. Now I have a mouse button to get me back to Metro UI. Editorial comment - DWJ: I think Windows 8 should default to the Metro UI upon exit from any application. After many months of objecting to Windows 8, I now like it -- but I do not like the extra key press on the Windows Key [on the keyboard] to get me back to Metro UI -- where I started. If Microsoft wants me to use the Metro UI, then Microsoft should dump me into the Metro UI whenever I exit any app.
I installed Windows 8 in another partition just to learn it and do the move later. I got no big issues but...The next day I noticed I have no mouse pointer in the "metro" interface. If I am in the desktop the pointer shows OK.
I looked carefully at boot/turn off stages and at the beginning the mouse pointer is there but suddenly disappears. The same is when power off. Suddenly appears just before the final stages of the turn off procedure.
I can see the visual signals (mouse over) and click in apps but no pointer at all.
I am currently using Windows 7 32-bit and when I did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on my PC, I noticed that there was no smooth 3D Graphics nor full-screen mode in DOS mode (the cmd.exe prompt) on my PC. I have an "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family" built-in display adoptor on my PC. Any workaround for this problem (except for buying a new graphics card)? And can I also install Win 8.1 RTM on my PC?
When I stream television shows from the web, the picture is not smooth. It moves in spurts. It appears to move at normal speed for a microsecond then another, and another, ad infinitum. Flash player if comletely up to date.
Just lately I have trouble with certain sites, like specifically Fox News Insider, not loading properly. The spinning dot wheel just keeps turning. I have Win 8.1 and use Firefox browser latest version.
is there a way to make this happen? i mean when i push the wheel of my mouse when i put my mouse on the window on the taskbar the windows closes. is there a way to make this happen? jut like closing tabs in internet browsers.
Just got a surface Pro 2 for work. In addition to the keyboard I need a mouse. normally a cheap USB mouse would do. however, I also have one of those 4G wireless network USB dongles that takes the only USB port.
Can any of the other ports be used for a mouse? I think it also has Bluetooth, but ideally don't rely on a mouse needing a battery.
unrelated to this, how does one use the camera properly in desktop mode? All I read it is using the cloud? what? I just want to access the pictures I take somehow. and can the camera zoom at all?
Over the past three weeks or so, there have been probably seven times my wireless USB Nexus Silent Mouse has not been recognized on cold computer startups (usually morning). Windows 8 (Pro x64) throws up a message that a USB device wasn't recognized, and I don't see a mouse cursor. Unplugging and replugging the USB mouse's stick, which is in a port on the front of the computer, solves it. The mouse driver is up to date, changing USB ports hasn't made a difference and the batteries are fine (and have been changed).
Recently I bought a new lap top and installed Windows 8.1
I have an issue with the Mouse/s. I tried 2 different mouses and I encountered the same problem with both of them, so I know it's not a mouse problem. Note that both of these mouses work perfectly on my other/older/Windows 7 and previously Windows XP lap top, so it's not a mouse issue. It's either a driver problem or something else.
I have tried all 3 USB ports I got and it does the same thing.
When I turn on the lap top, if the mouse is plugged or unplugged and I plug it afterwards, it doesn't work. If however I turn on the lap top, plug in the mouse, and the restart the lap top, when it restarts the mouse works fine all up until the lap top is turned off again. And then to get it to work again I have to turn on the lap top, with the mouse plugged, or plug the mouse after it's turned on, then restart the lap top, and then the mouse works fine.
Apparently, this is not very convenient. It's a major inconvenience.
p.s I never had this issue before on any other PC computer or lap top, whether it was Windows XP or Windows 7. So it's either a Windows 8.1 issue or the new lap top issue, or a driver issue.
I got a new mouse a couple of days back, it's one of those fancy Razer mouses with 12 buttons on the side that is used for gaming and stuff. I have an issue when I try to use usb 3.0 instead of 2.0 ports. ( my tower only has like 2 2.0 ports so I try to use those for other things ) I am trying not to buy a usb hub before somebody says it
On games ( fullscreen or Windowed ) quickslot controls where you can use the numbers on your mouse I can't use the 3.0 port as it won't recognize the side buttons but it will on the 2.0 port.
I am guessing this is a driver problem but I am unsure. Neither the native mouse driver for Windows nor the fancy Cloud Synapse driver 2.0 works.
Every single time I reboot my system my mouse fails to register in the system. I have to physically unplug it and plug it back in for Windows 8.1 to register it. Once I do that I have literally no issues at all..... How to fix this so it doesn't happen every single time I reboot?
Ok I finished up my PC Build i74930 K Asus Rampage IV Black Ed mobo 16Gb DDR 3 ram Samsung 840 EVO ssd 2 TB WD HDD
My mouse or Keyboard or both suddenly without warning will stop functioning. Sometimes one or the other sometimes both. I tried running a game for a small bench test and it dropped the mouse and keyboard so I had to use the reset button to get out.
On PC, has a problem with the PS2 keyboard and mouse staying on after the PC is turned off...the lights are still on.
The only thing different when I had it was the keyboard and muse and the OS....I use a logitech G510 and a Razer DeathAdder, both USB and the OS was 7 Ultimate 64 bit. My sons system is running 7 Pro 64 bit and using an old OEM HP keyboard/mouse.
I installed the 8.1 patch today and shortly after the mouse disappeared from my screen completely (I have a laptop with a touch pad). I tried going into task manager as just going in and cancelling used to solve this problem before installing the patch but this no longer works. I also tried rebooting (switching off then on again) but this didn't work and the computer didn't even reboot; just reopened my session exactly where I left off even when I waited ten minutes before switching the on switch again. I have temporarily solved this problem with a usb mouse borrowed from a family member but my family member needs it back (and I also would prefer to use the touchpad).
I should add here that I didn't want to do the installation when it started happening and while I meant to press the "default settings" option, I think I went with "customise settings" by accident. I just said ok to everything as I had a deadline and needed computer access. Could I have pressed "turn touch pad off" and if so how do I change this?
Every now and then my mouse will freeze. If I turn off the mouse then back on it starts working again. Have this happen with Bluetooth mouse?
I have used this mouse on two different computers and both do the same thing. I'm thinking it is the mouse since it's doing it on my desktop with a Bluetooth dongle and my Asus T100 with built in Bluetooth.
Installed windows 8.1 preview last night and after installing i get stuck at the lock screen, cant click or punch keys to log in. Since the powers that be decided to change how you boot into safe mode is my only option to format?
I was having the issue where windows 8 randomly disconnects bluetooth devices, so i tried to remove then reinstall it. When trying to remove, after a while, it comes up with a message saying "Unable to remove device".
So I go straight to device manager and uninstall my mouse from there. it works. I go back to the windows 8 show bluetooth devices menu and the mouse is still there. I hit remove and it works.
Now when i restart my computer its BACK in both device manager and bluetooth device menu. I just want it off and gone.
The only thing that has changed is that I upgraded my OS recently.
I have an 2.4 GHz Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse. Originally after the upgrade, the left button caused right clicks and vice versa. I found a workaround by changing the Windows 8 settings to "Right Primary Button" while in the control panel, the device is configured for the left hand. If I select "Left..." and right respectively, I get the reverse. The scroll wheel also does nothing when clicked. Sometimes when I read articles I click it so I can move my mouse up and down to scroll the page without pushing any keys.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse driver and HID driver with no luck.
I can install and use any of two bluetooth mice (Dell PU705 Travel mouse or Samsung S Action mouse ET-MP900D) on my Lenovo Ideapad Z710 laptop. This works fine with either mouse for an average of 20 minutes (varies) then it loses contact with the laptop and its back to using the touchpad. When I go to the Bluetooth settings page -- "Manage Bluetooth Devices", the control suddenly reappears on entering the page with no further action from me. The recovery of the device like this happens on no other page, to my knowledge. I have a phone and a tablet paired with the laptop on bluetooth and they stay paired. I have installed the latest Lenovo bluetooth drivers with no improvement. It appears that the mice are still connected but not responding to the laptop until they get a small 'kick' when I return to the Bluetooth settings page. New, full strength batteries are installed.
I have a lenovo G505 laptop running windows 8.1 and i am having issues trying to install my bluetooth USB adapter, a belkin F8T017.
I have tried installing the drivers but it doesn't recognise the device during the installation, and when I check device manager it shows as a HID compliant Mouse, i have tried everything i can find on google, tried installing the vista drivers in compatibility mode, and repeatedly uninstalled the device in DM, even tried to update the driver software and pointing to the correct drivers but as the drivers are old it keeps saying the drivers installed are the most up to date (even though they are wrong) it does not recognise it as a bluetooth adapter, and it works in my fiancee's laptop and my desktop which both run win7 ultimate.
I've tried three mice, Logitech G400, Razer Deathadder 3.5 and a random Logitech wireless but the problem remains.
I haven't found any coincidents when i run a specific program or game. Sometimes it goes a day or two without incident and sometimes multiple times a day. I have run several Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast scans but they did not find anything.
I have also ran a "sfc /scannow" and the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" to fix. I have tried the current drivers for every mouse, tried without drivers and tried to uninstall all drivers all let Windows install them itself.
