Will Microsoft ever implement Smooth Scrolling?

Hi all, new guy here....

I was wandering, will Microsoft ever implement (maybe upcoming SP?) Smooth Scrolling to Windows Explorer, in other words, windows and folders have jerky scrolling and i think SS would be nice!?

Hello SputnikNYC and welcome to the Forum. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your question but isn't smooth scrolling a mouse or touchpad function? On my laptop I have a Synaptics touchpad and it supports smooth scrolling in Windows 7.

If you don't have any additional mouse drive utilities installed, then click the Start Orb, right-click Computer, then select Properties:
  1. Click "Advanced system settings"
  2. Click "Advanced"
  3. Click "Settings" under Performance
  4. Make sure "Smooth-scroll list boxes" is checked

You also need to remember that when you scroll views in Windows Explorer, it scrolls on a line-by-basis, the default of which is 3. This is sometimes perceived as "jerky". You can adjust the number of lines that are scrolled by doing the following:
  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Click "Hardware and Sound"
  3. Under "Devices and Printers", click "Mouse"
  4. Click the "Wheel" tab
  5. Adjust "Vertical Scrolling" according to your preferences
  6. Click OK

Smooth scrolling?
Hi all! Scrolling seems very jumpy under Windows 7. You can especially notice it when scrolling through large icons in Windows Explorer. Is there a way to make it smoother? Thanks!
