You may be used to tapping the arrow keys to quickly scroll through images in Windows’ Photos app, but an even faster method is using the mouse wheel. Let’s explore how to make the mouse wheel scroll instead of zoom.
This is for devices running Windows 10
By default, when an image is open in Photos and you use your mouse wheel, your photo either zooms in or zooms out. By adjusting Photos’ settings, you can change this behavior so the mouse wheel opens the next or previous photo in your folder.
First, open the Photos app on your Windows 10 device by opening the Start menu, entering Photos in the Cortana search box, and clicking the app in the search results. Refer to the below image:
Next, in the top right-hand corner, click the three dots Menu. See the below image:
Now, select Settings to open the Photos app’s Settings Menu. See the following image:
Next, scroll down to the Viewing and Editing section. At the bottom of this section, in the Mouse Wheel subsection, enable the View next or previous item option. Refer to the below image:
And that’s it. In Photos, your mouse wheel will now navigate between the images in your folder.
