Scrolling in Excel using mouse wheel is not working properly.

Copper Contributor



I've got Mouse setting set up to scroll 6 rows/lines when I rotate the mouse wheel, because we have a spreadsheet that is set-up in blocks of 6 rows. Until recently, no issues. 


I'm guessing we've had a recent update to Windows, as now a single movement of the wheel scrolls down 5⅔ rows (or 3 wheel clicks gives 17 scrolled rows)! Any idea how this could be fixed?


It's not a life changing issue except that my sense of what looks good is offended.


Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

I'm having the same issue and have tried multiple setting changes in both Windows and Excel with no success. I want to scroll down in my excel spreadsheet 3 (Exact) rows at a time (I use a spreadsheet with 24 hour days of the month), but it gives me a little less than that resulting in me not coming to a stop at hour 24. I have been working with this spreadsheet for many years, so this is irritating that it doesn't scroll correctly any more. Did anyone ever get with you for a fix or have you figured it out? I've been dealing with this for a while now.


I've noticed that if I scroll on my other spreadsheets, it scrolls properly at 3 rows exactly per one movement of the mouse wheel. I'm not sure what is making this spreadsheet different than the others. I use this one every day though and it's big with multiple tabs. On all my spreadsheets, I freeze the top portion so that I can see all the headers which are typically multiple rows.


Thanks Mike
