Subject: A question

Dear Joe, I have a question about the mouse and scrolling which I could not find in your TIPS.
I used to be able to use the scroll roller to move one line or item at a time.  I now find it moves 4-5 rows or items at a time.  Is there a setting where I can go back to just one row scrolling?

Thanks so much!!  I happily stay a devoted member but live 40 miles away so have not been able to come to many SIGS.  However I like the live streams and especially the newsletters.

A. Glad you watch the class on the Internet and like the newsletters.
To adjust the mouse and wheel go to:  Control Panel, click on Mouse.

Response: Thanks so much.  Perfect solution.
