Background Scrolling

Windows 10 includes a new feature that allows you to scroll through documents or web pages without the focus being on the window.  This comes in handy when researching and writing documents.

To enable scrolling inactive windows:

  • Click on Start menu
  • Choose Settings
  • Choose Devices
  • Choose Mouse & Touchpad
  • Toggle on Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them.

Mouse Settings

This option saves the user a few clicks, and makes it so the user does not have to open separate tabs in a browser and switch back and forth between the tabs.
