Microsoft has removed a setting from the system settings that would allow you to change the scroll direction on the mouse wheel. The default is now to roll the window over the document, while Apple has long ago set the default to scroll the document itself. Windows has the old way, Apple the new way. Some people prefer the old way, some the new way. But you need to able to set it.
Your only option is to change one parameter in the Windows Registry, which of course requires admin privileges. Two steps:
- Find the HID device path in device manager.
- Set FlipFlopWheel from 0 (Windows) to 1 (Mac) in regedit and reboot.
If you have a Logitech mouse you can set the scroll direction in Options+.
