I don’t know how many of you are aware of this small mouse trick

I personally was not known to this, even after many tricks we’ve posted!

So all of us has used this device called a mouse.

it is a pointing device which is quite essential in the computer.

The wheel over the mouse has given us an easy option to scroll over the web pages and longer documents. But here are some other ways to use the mouse wheel which really made my works easier.

  • The mouse wheel is not just a wheel. It can also be used as a button. Pressing down on the wheel will acts like a third mouse button. The wheel button can be used to open a web page in a tab by clicking the wheel on any link and can also be used to close a tab by clicking the wheel on any open tab.
  • Hold down the Shift key and scroll down in most Internet browsers to go back to the previous web page.
  • Some mouse wheels can be pushed left or right to also move back and forward between web pages.

If you are confused, then go through this GIF.


I’ll be dipped in shit, rolled in cornflakes, and wrapped in wax paper !

You’re right.

This “feature” has driven my NUTS.

On my PC, it switches to this slow scrolling mode that has elicited maybe 40 million cusswords over the few years I’ve had a mouse with the scroll wheel on it.

I knew EVERYTHING about computers - except that! (kidding, y’know).

Thanks !!
