Windows 7: Side scroll on the mouse

Side scroll on the mouse

Hi, just a request from someone who knows how.
How do I disable the side scrolling on my mouse?
I have the Logitech G502, so for anyone who also has one knows how all over the place that middle mouse button is when you make sudden movements.
If anybody could help me out with disabling the side scrolling capabilities it would be much appreciated, thanks.

You need to unassign the side scrolling ability of the mouse. Load the Logitech Gaming software app from your system, and get to the screen shown here:

Click on the left and right scroll options, a small blue arrow will appear beside the scroll wheel where the empty red circles are in the picture. Click the arrow for each side (right and left) and choose "Unassign" from the drop down menu. Close the Logitech Gaming app and you should be good to go.

You may have to reboot.
