It depends what brand product you are using. for most touchpads you just drag two fingers next to eachother on the touchpad and it will scroll up and down. for some others you just drag one finger along the edge of the touchpad

Scroll wheel stopped working. It feels weird now when i try to scroll it. How do i fix it?


Disconnect the mouse from the computer and turn it upside down. The screws to disassemble the mouse are under the pads on the bottom of the mouse. When you disassemble the mouse, you will find that the scroll wheel axle is gummed up, and the interruptor wheel is probably dirty. Use an old tooth brush and alcohol to clean the scroll wheel components, and let the components dry. You can use glue to re-attach the pads after you have reassembled the mouse.

Cursor constantly scrolling on compaq notebook


Step 1:
The touchpad of Hewlett Packard Compaq notebook computers comes equipped with vertical and horizontal scroll capabilities. Dragging your finger on the top or side of the touchpad will scroll in windows equipped with scrollbars. This feature takes some getting used to if you're used to a regular mouse or a wheel equipped mouse. If you prefer to not have vertical and horizontal scrolling performed from the touchpad, one or both features can be disabled.

Double-click the red Synaptics icon on your task bar. If it's not displaying, open the Control Panel and click on "Mouse" in Windows XP. In Windows Vista/7, type "Mouse" in the search field of the "Start" menu and click on the Mouse result. Click on the "Device Settings" tab and then click on the "Settings" button. The Properties for Synaptics TouchPad dialog box will appear. Click on "Virtual Scrolling" in the "Select an Item" box on the left. Clear one or both scrolling features in the "Virtual Scrolling" section. Click "Apply," and then "OK."

My scrollbar will not work. I can use my touchpad just right and right click and left click, but I cannot scroll on a page I have to use my arrow keys, how do I fix this?


Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer. If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

I have a HP pavillion DV6-1250us Windows vista home premium and i cannot get my mouse to scroll up or down? how do i fix this?


To move the pointer, slide your finger across the TouchPad surface in the direction you want the pointer to go. Use the TouchPad buttons like the corresponding buttons on an external mouse. To scroll up and down using the TouchPad vertical scroll zone (right edge of the touchpad), slide your finger up or down over the lines.

NOTE: If you are using the TouchPad to move the pointer, you must lift your finger off the TouchPad
before moving it to the scroll zone.

Scroll bar not working all of the sudden. I use firefox and has never been an issue for my pavilion before. I did use a public wi-fi at a hospital briefly and had to use IE because firefox never works in...


First, lets make sure that scrolling is still enabled. Look in the bottom right of the taskbar and see if your synaptics icon for the touchpad properties is there. It will either look like the touchpad or it will be a red icon in the shape of a tear drop. If it is there, right click on it and scroll to properties. If it is not there, go to the control panel and click on mouse properties. When the mouse properties window opens, look on the top right hand side and look for the tab marked device properties, click on this tab...this is for the touchpad settings and controls. When this window opens, look in the left hand pane and scroll down to "scrolling", see if the box is checked to enable scrolling....if it is checked, uncheck it, hit apply, then check it again and hit apply again, click ok and exit. Now, if you do not see any of the above and all you see is mouse settings, then the driver for the touchpad has been corrupt and you will need to go to HP support drivers and download a new driver for the touchpad. Go to the link below and put in the model number of your laptop, then in the next window pick your operating system, now, scroll down and find the touchpad driver listed. Download it into a folder on your deskyop, open the file and run it, it will install a fresh driver. Reboot the laptop and all settings will be on by default.

Have a Satellite P 305D-S9800; scoll bar will not pull down by mouse or touch pad; as soon as I let go it jumps back to the top please help


The "Touchpad is very sensitive; if you look while scrolling, the "scroll-bar" will turn (Blue), click on the ("scroll-bar"), until it turn "Gray." Note: "You ca use the Pointer Device / Touchpad without using the Scroll-bar, basically anywhere on the screen; ("bottom scroll-pad" = left to right"), and ("right -side edge scroll-pad = up & down").
