Hi,

 

I have been running into a quirk with horizontal scrolling with Excel while holding down Shift and scrolling with the mouse wheel. On some computers I use it scrolls like the vertical mouse scrolling through the workbook, or any other program for that matter, but just horizontally. I have found a couple computers, including my main work computer, that holding Shift while scrolling will just bring the active cell to the center of the screen and then have no other movement. Then if I hold Ctrl+Shift while scrolling it will scroll until the end of the workbook, like horizontal scrolling in any other program. 

 

Is there a way change to how horizontal scrolling works in Excel? Or at least just switch the Shift and Ctrl+Shift shortcuts? I have looked through many forums without success. I'm not sure how why some computers function this way but others don't without any obvious setting adjustments.

 

Thank you!
