Scroll Wheel on a laptop
« on: September 29, 2009, 12:08:28 PM »
I was using my new laptop today to play farm town, and I had to use the +- buttons to zoom in and out. Pain in the butt. :thumbsdown:

I got looking at the control panel for the touchpad, and found something cool.  This one has a virtual scroll wheel.. You have to turn it on, but after you do, the right edge of the touchpad becomes a scroll wheel.

I just found it by accident, so I thought I`d post this in case others hadn`t found it.   :thumbsup:
