Default Alt key and trackwheel

Press and hold the alt key and by rolling the trackwheel you can go back one letter at a time. You can then delete the offending character with the delete key if you stop one space to the right.

I hold the ALT key and roll the trackwheel in the direction I want to move--up for left and down for a move to the right. This provides scrolling side to side across a line of text versus moving from sentence to sentence from the top of your block of text to the bottom.Good luck..

Don't feel bad, it took me 4 months to figure it out.
