    Again, if, you, already, know this, just pretend you never read it, here.
    And, I, really could have, maybe, should have mentioned this long ago.

    Let's say:
    1. You have a non-Touch PC or laptop.
    2. Your mouse has a wheel (pretty common)
    3. You select an APP, such as News, Photos, Games... anything w/ heaps of content to the right ----->
    4. There is a scroll bar @ the bottom that can be grabbed to move ----> to view the content.
    BUT... (you don't need to use it)
    5. Spinning the wheel towards you (normally, go down) will move the screen to the right ----->
    6. Spinning the wheel away from you (normally, go up) will move the screen to the left <--------
    Just like you were swiping your finger across it.
    Wheeeeeeeeee, don't have bother trying to grab & move the bar. Much easier, smoother & more accurate w/ using the wheel.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Maybe it is old news? dunno. But I find, with my ancient test hardware, it is quicker to use the bar than the mouse scroll wheel.

    No worries; whatever feels most comfy. Really, just another instance of me letting folks know what's possible... even though, sometimes, may be something folks, already, know.
