The scroll button on a mouse works very efficiently for scrolling through a long web page or document. It also functions as a third button at the time of the game. But when the scroll button on a mouse starts infinite scrolling, it becomes a nightmare for the user to use the mouse correctly. Do not worry. This problem usually occurs due to a problem settings file. Follow these simple fixes and the problem will be solved very easily.



Initial workarounds

1. Try plugging the mouse into another USB slot if it's a USB mouse or try another PC to see if it's a problem with your PC or mouse. Check whether the scroll button scrolls automatically or not. If it does, it has probably gone out of order.

2. Try changing the keyboard and mouse battery and see if it works.

3. Search for services in the Windows 10 search box and click services to open the Service Manager. Now, locate Wacom professional tablet service. Stop and then restart the service.
