Question About Browsers (Possible Rant)
Permalink   


Why don't you get the option to have the "slider" (right-side of window) go in the opposite direction?

I don't have a problem with the scroll wheel taking me down the page (rolling-down takes the page down).

But what designer said the slider should work the opposite?

Adobe has a "hand" that grabs the page. To me...that makes sense logically.

On this computer (Windows XP SP3, IE 8) I can drag the "slider" up or down, roll the mouse wheel up or down, use the up/down arrow buttons above & below the "slider" and on the Keyboard -- all of which work in both directions.

Point being...with the slider, you move the slider-down...the page goes up. I want to have the page go down. Like if you "grab" the page and move it down.

I think you're "peeing on my leg" -- the "slider" and arrows control your view of the page, thus the page itself has to move in an opposite direction.

I checked the Control Panel Mouse & Keyboard settings and there's no way there to change it like you want. 

Maybe you could edit the Registry but I wouldn't recommend that.

no

Like I said...the scroll-wheel to me makes sense. The slider is like a "joy-stick" and to my thinking should be programmable to a particular mindset (not their's).

Way back, some designer said, "this is how it should be!". And I just don't agree and never have. bleh

Brings to mind flying a radio-controlled airplane -- when flying inverted, up-stick is down and down-stick is up -- when the plane is flying toward you, left and right-stick are reversed.

I agree that provision should be made in the driver options to allow user discretion.
