Reverse scrolling in Mac OSX Lion
One of the new features in OSX Lion is the introduction of “natural” scrolling. Previously you would have moved your finger down to move down, and up move up on your mouse or trackpad. In OSX Lion, the default is set to the new “Natural” scrolling which mimics the same gesture you’re accustom to using on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Some users may like this but for me it was hard to get used to. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but for now I’m switching back. It’s very simple to change the scrolling back to the “old” way. Just follow the directions below.
For Laptop users:
Go to System Preferences > Trackpad > Scroll and Zoom >and remove the tick from “Scroll direction: natural”.
For desktop users:
Go to System Preferences > Mouse > and remove the tick from “Scroll direction: natural”.
