Tech Tip: Reverse Mouse Scroll in Windows

Do you work in both Windows and Mac like I do? If so, you might be frustrated that there’s no built-in way to reverse mouse scrolling in Windows without going through the Registry — which, just no, I’m not looking to accidentally brick my computer just for that.

While looking for a less… complicated way to do it, I came across this article on APPUALS, which recommends using AutoHotKey to make that happen. It fixed my problem, with the caveat that you have to run the script every time you restart your computer.

Now, how do I make it run on startup? I’ll report back when I find it!

Tech Tip: iPhone Precision Keyboard Cursor

Selecting text on my iPhone has always been frustrating, but it’s been especially so since they stopped magnifying the text when you long press it. What I didn’t know, until recently, is that Apple updated the way the cursor works in iOS 12 — two years ago!

Tech Tip: Remove Text Formatting in Windows

Do you ever have a need to remove formatting from text before pasting it into Word or some other document software? I do this all the time in my design work, and I needed a way to do this in Windows 10.

Tech Tip: Windows Startup Folder

Last week I found a script that allowed me to set my mouse in Windows 10 to reverse scroll. The only issue was that I had to manually run it every time I started my computer, so I went looking for a solution for that, and I’ve found it!
