Windows 7: arrow keys don't work with auto scroll function with wi

arrow keys don't work with auto scroll function with wi

I use the auto scroll feature on my mouse frequently to browse web pages. Before upgrading to win 7 (and ie8) when activated I could scroll using the arrow keys on my keyboard. Since upgrading the arrow keys no longer work. You can only scroll by moving the mouse itself. That function is very important to me as it allowed me to keep my hand off the mouse reducing the aggravation of carpal tunnel syndrome. Any fixes? I am not sure if this is an IE8 problem or win 7 as I only use the function when browsing the web.

Is it the same with other browsers ? Check if its the same with other browsers like firefox or safari . Is it that you are unable to scroll arrow buttons only with IE or even with windows explorer ?

I don't use any other browser. Jury's still out on whether this will make me consider them. As for other programs, the autoscroll doesn't function at all with Windows Explorer. With Excel and MS Word autoscroll works with mouse movement but touching any arrow button cancels it. Not that you've got me thinking about other program behavior, I think this is a Win 7 issue, not IE 8. I am not happy about it and couldn't find any threads anywhere on the net discussing it.
