Zooming with mouse wheel

    Having loaded the Microsoft drivers for my mouse the scroll wheel no longer
    zooms in and out in Windows Picture Viewer. Is there any way I can get this
    back?

    I know I can set mouse buttons for different actions in individual programs
    but there don't seem to be any options for the scroll wheel.

    Regards

    Try a left click then scroll. This works for my setup.

    Not for mine but thanks for trying. I have just discovered that the scroll
    wheel button brings up my open windows for me to scroll through. It's never
    done that before.

    Hi, Periproct.

    Different hardware? Different drivers? Maybe. Or in different programs?

    On my Win7 x64 system with Microsoft Laser 6000 Desktop set and using
    IntelliPoint/IntelliType drivers, if I hold down the Ctrl key while
    scrolling, my icons and other screen features zoom - but not here in Windows
    Live Mail.
