Windows 7: Different settings for scrolling on mouse and trackpad - same time

13 Aug 2013   #1

Different settings for scrolling on mouse and trackpad - same time

I want to be able to use my trackpad (apple magic trackpad) and mouse at the same time but it appears that there is only one global setting for scrolling that effects both the mouse and the trackpad. Is there a way to set different settings to use _both_at_the_same_time? I haven't found any third party apps that do this - can I hack the registry?

I am running Win 7 ultimate x64

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
