Windows 7: Smooth scrolling?

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!

Have you installed the latest graphic card drivers for your card ? Or are you using the generic windows driver ?

I have a MacBook Pro and I followed Boot Camp instructions. I can definitely access nVidia Control Panel, so, I assume I have the proper drivers installed.

Try via mouse properties in the control panel, or personalize>change mouse pointers, under wheel you have some options to change how wheel reacts.

I can only change step size there, not the smoothness.

Though my mouse indeed has the click-to-click ratchet mode, it can't be a hardware issue. I get this jumpy scrolling even from my MacBooks glass trackpad.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

If browsing, it's sometimes an available option under Tools as in Firefox.
