Windows 10 Scrolling by itself Quick Fixes

Check for Issue with your Mouse

First, we need to determine if your issue is related to your mouse or if it’s a system bug. Here are some things you can try before you start troubleshooting Windows 10 itself:

  • Unplug your mouse, then plug it back in after a few minutes.
  • Plug your mouse into a different USB port .
  • Make sure your mouse cable isn’t damaged.
  • If you’re using a wireless mouse, check or change your batteries.
  • Make sure there’s no dirt blocking your scroll wheel .
  • If a controller is plugged in at the same time as your mouse, unplug it.

*** Commentary
Unplugging and moving to another USB port also applies to wireless mice, moving to another USB port even if you swap with another device will assign a new device ID. I know this action was laughed at by some, but with the knowledge of Device ID, you can walk away with the last laugh.

These tips help you confirm that your mouse and USB ports are in working condition.
