Mouse wheel cascading programs instead of dragging them.

DannaMoore asked on

original Title: Mouse wheel action

Pressing my mouse wheel causes my program to cascade instead of dragging or panning like it is supposed to.  How do you fix this problem?

You do not provide much info for us to assist you. What make and model computer? What make and model mouse? What version of Windows 7?


I'd suggest going to the Control Panel and open Mouse, check to see what is assigned as functions for your mouse.
