Default Thumb Wheel Settings?

Please Login to Remove!

This is probably a stupid question but I'm not too proud to ask it.. Lol.

Is there any settings for the thumb wheel to advance like 2 or 3 lines per click... Or is there a short_cut that allows you to drop down a page per click? I tried the obvious Alt-thumb wheel and Num-thumb wheel... I do use T and B alot... I've worn out a couple 7290 thumb wheels so thought I'd try to make this 8700 last a bit longer..

Thanks..

;)

I haven't seem any settings for the track wheel to do this.

No but you can do this: Horizontal Cursor Scrolling. Hold the ALT key while you roll the Trackwheel to scroll horizontally.

It's been a while since I've used a trackwheel device but I believe the space bar acts as a "page down" and Alt + Space acts as a "page up". Please correct me if I am wrong.

Omg!! That's fantastic!!! The space bar works going down but the alt space didn't work.... just messing around I figured out its Num-space bar going up!!! That's going to really help!! I knew you guys would know this!!! Thanks again...
