    Scroll horizontally with a mouse wheel

    I have a dell laptop (lattitude D830) and a small portable mouse that goes with it. I'd like to see if it's possible to enable the wheel to scroll horizontally on the page, in addition to being able to scroll vertically which it does already, either with or without a macro, and wihtout purchasing a different mouse. I found this thread, but none of the suggestions helped:

    Thanks

    You may just have to click the scroll wheel and move the cursor to the left or right, if your mouse has that function

    It does, but if I slide the mouse a bit too much, it sends me flying across the page.

    Is there a way to write a macro that upon pressing the mouse's right button or the shift key would enable the wheel to scroll horizontaly?

    Hello luv2glyd,

    Do this what you want requires the mouse driver to be programmable. The only company I know of that makes programmable mouse driver is Kensington. I am including a link to the site where you can select your Window or Mac system and download a mouse driver. The Trackball driver maybe the one you need to download since it can be programmed for 4 buttons.

    I loaded it, but could not find how to customize it for sideways scrolling....
