Reversing mouse scrolling direction on Windows

  1. Find the hardware ID of the mouse
    • Go to the mouse control panel
    • Select “Hardware” tab
    • Click “Properties” button
    • Select “Details” tab
    • From the drop-down list choose “Hardware IDs”
    • Save the VID*** entry ( e.g. VID_045E&PID_0039 )
  2. Find and change the corresponding configuration settings in the registry
    • Run regedit.exe
    • Open Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID
    • Here you should find an entry for the hardware ID of your mouse
    • In all sub-keys of the hardware id key look for the “DeviceParameters” key and change the “FlipFlopWheel” value from 0 to 1
    • scrollwheel_reverse
  3. Make it work
    • Unplug the mouse
    • Count to five🙂
    • Plug the mouse back in
