Scroll Inactive Windows

Here’s a great tip for folks who frequently have multiple windows open at one time when using Windows 10.

When you turn on Scroll Inactive Windows, you’ll be able to scroll through windows you aren’t actively using just by hovering over them.

For example, if you are watching a video or interacting with someone online in one window, you can scroll through a long document or a folder full of files without switching windows.


Here’s how to turn it on. Type Mouse and Touchpad Settings into the search box and click on the results.


Slide the switch under Scroll inactive windows I hover over them to the On position.


You should be all set.
