I have just purchased a new mouse which, in addition to the standard scroll wheel, has a secondary wheel for horizontal scrolling. The horizontal scroll wheel works on most things so far, including on Word. However, the main reason I wanted it was to navigate large Excel sheets quickly but it doesn't work in Excel!! I've searched online for a solution to this, or a reason why it does not work, but have been unsuccessful! Does anyone know how to get it working? For reference, the mouse I bought is the Logitech MX Master 2S. Thanks in advance.

I found this solution to work for me:
Right-click on the status menu in Excel (bottom left corner of Excel window, normally says "READY") and de-select "Scroll Lock" option.
If that does not work they have a collection of other options at the website:

@Lee Peverett Same issue here but with an MX Anywhere 2S. In mouse settings, I selected application specific settings for the Excel app, then adjusted my horizontal scroll speed higher. This seemed to enable the functionality and I was then able to go back and set the scroll speed to my liking. It has not worked properly since I first got the mouse a year ago, although I noticed that I could scroll on certain worksheets that had freeze panes set.

@AggieChris holyshoot this works. Thanks mate!
I'm almost going crazy. I thought it's something to do with the Windows. But after installing a brand new Windows (fresh install win 10, I was using win 7 upgrade before) and it keeps happening (only scroll once then it fails to respond), i thought it's a product defect.
Tempted to buy MX Master 3 but i'm affraid it will have the same shortcoming with the previous S2 that i'm using

@AggieChris Nice! I will let the others know.
Sometimes it doesn't work though. When it doesn't, I alt+tab, use the horizontal scroll, and alt+tab back, and it works. So it has 2 workarounds that guaranteed work. Do you know why this happen? My friend has this exact same MX Master 2s and it works fine without these workarounds
