Windows 7: Word 2007 scrolling options

Windows 7
Word 2007 scrolling options

I don't know exactly how to phrase this issue, which is stopping me from finding a solution for it. I'm sure it's simple...

I am looking for a way to change how the "click and drag" scroll displays in Word 2007. Right now, when I click and drag the scroll bar on the right in, for example, Chrome, it moves the page as I scroll. In Word, however, it waits until I unclick before showing me what I've scrolled to. I like seeing where I am as I go, so is there a way to change this in Word? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Actually, it's a little weird because it was scrolling the favoured way until recently. I don't know what happened, but I just noticed that change. Anyway, if I can learn how to change it back, that would be helpful.


Actually, I just realized that this is only happening when I'm viewing the document zoomed out with 2 pages side-by-side rather than at the one-page width. I guess this is most likely to speed up page display or something. Does anyone if I can force it to display the scrolling the way I want?

I tried it, and unfortunately, it works exactly the same way in my Word 2007. When you've got two pages on the screen, scrolling isn't simultaneous with your finger/hand movement. I would imagine there's no way to get around this.

I'm annoyed by same issue also. No fixes?
This cannot be claimed as a 'feature'!

No, it's definitely a flaw, not a feature.
