Default How to Scroll Continenuously

Please Login to Remove!

Call me lazy but is there a way to scroll through icons with the track wheel continuously on the desktop instead of stopping at the first and the last icon? For example (in Cingular defaul theme), if my current cursor is at "Turn Wireless Off" icon and want to get to "Messsages" icon, wouldn't it be faster to scroll forward, pass the "Turn Power Off" icon and to the beginning of the icon? Scrolling BACK through ALL the icons is just too slow...
I tried searching for it but didn't find it...

You can also scroll up and down by holding down the ALT key when you scroll.....might be a little faster for you.

True - but - being lazy like myself, and while I am driving, it still may be faster if the scroll jumps to the beginning of the icon list...

Default Here's what I do

I put the icons at the top that don't have shortcuts so there are only a few lines that I have to scroll.

WOW. I'm surprised being as lazy as that, that you can do TWO things at once... Drive and use the BB.

Well, also my right thumb is not as nimble... I can scroll DOWN very fast but it takes an effort just to scroll UP. Perhaps if I wear down my BB more the trackwheel will be easier to scroll.
I drive a look at how sends me messages but there is no way I can be driving and typing at the same time (waiting at the light would be another store).
Another point: If anyone has used Motorola cellphone before, he/she would know that Motorola does offered a selectable option to scroll through menu items continuously.
