How can I reverse the mouse scroll wheel scroll direction in Windows 10? NOTE SCROLL WHEEL SCROLL WHEEL SCROLL WHEEL NOT TOUCHPAD FFS

In Windows 10 I can successfully reverse the scroll wheel in most 'old style' apps (eg Firefox, Notepad++, Visual Studio) by setting a particular registry key.

However in 'new style' apps (eg Settings, Insider Hub) the scroll wheel direction reversal is ignored.

How can I also reverse the scroll wheel direction in these 'new style' apps?

edit: note I'm talking about the mouse scroll wheel, not trackpad scroll direction.

For those wondering... Since it's not mentioned what Registry Key Damian is talking about, Take a look at the blog post done by Kevin Becker called Reverse Scrolling on Windows 8. This will give you reverse scrolling in most applications in windows 10 even though there isn't a configuration option for it in Control Panel > Mouse & Trackpad Settings.
