What could you do with Ctrl+Scroll ??  - because I can do nothing! What feature has been / should be / are connected to Ctrl+Scroll?

 :tellme:

Try it in your browser window. It should change the size of text. It's very handy when some site insists on using a font size you'd need a microscope to read.

But count your mouse 'notches' and undo it by that many in the opposite direction, or all sites you look at after will be affected too.

I had that mouse (the MX-Revolution) for about a month. Then I got a little pissed that the frigging Logitech drivers kept losing my custom button assignments and dropped it from a little too high, it broke.

You could have dropped it this way, then ;D. Tell me how do you like the scrolling-switch experience ;)

Try it on IE 7. You'll see superboyac closer than before ;D. I'm sure the zoom function works in most applications like that.

I still don't get your problems (of almost all posters) with smooth scrolling. I stop where I want to stop, using every navigation method. Who knows? Maybe I have super perception power or something :D

And what's up with Logitech drivers as well? Mine work like a charm, no slowdowns and not a single problem in three weeks (since I installed them). I'm confused :huh:

And talking about Logitech, how about their new Wii-like mouse?

EDIT: D'oh! app beat me by a few minutes!

I hate logitech drivers - bloatware. Thanks whatever_deity for USB mice and the standard-features support in XP :)

As for their Wii-like mouse, dunno... if it isn't a couple hundred times as precise and easier to use than the Wii controller, it's useless on a PC.

Oh yes, remember now   I do. The feature I had   some time ago, but went away it did  when something else   installed was. Though funny it is: the function I have  still inside popups!
