My pointer turns into a wheel when i scroll RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I scroll down on a page, after a little bit, my pointer turns into a weird pointer (the thing that shows up whenever you middle click on free space in a page) Whenever this happens, after i click to change it back, whenever i click on a tab, it closes, so i have to press down on my mouse wheel to fix that, but how do i prevent my pointer into turning into the weird pointer in the first place, so I don't have to go through this hassle?

    Please help, it's an absolute nuisance.

  • You have asked in the wrong forum. This forum is for questions and discussions about the TechNet Wiki. I believe you should ask your question in a Microsoft Answers/Community forum dedicated to Windows, such as this one:


    I filtered on the topic "Search, touch, & mouse". You can click on "Show filters" and select your version of Windows.

    Search for similar questions, or click on "Participate" and select "Ask a Question". The Answers/Community forums are on a different platform, so we cannot move this question there. You will need to ask your question again. Sorry.
