How to invert direction of mouse wheel scrolling in Windows 7?

cuetip

I have always preferred inverted control/UI movement, probably because of all the video games I played as a kid, but also because I think of it like flying a plane (pull back to go up). How can I make the direction that the mouse scroll wheel moved the cursor inverted from “standard?”

Open Mouse Properties by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type mouse, and then click Mouse.

Click the Wheel tab, and then do one of the following:

To set the number of lines the screen will scroll for each notch of mouse wheel movement, under Vertical Scrolling, select The following number of lines at a time, and then enter the number of lines you want to scroll in the box.

To scroll an entire screen of text for each notch of the mouse wheel, under Vertical Scrolling, select One screen at a time.

If your mouse has a wheel that supports horizontal scrolling, under Horizontal Scrolling, in the Tilt the wheel to scroll the following number of characters at a time box, enter the number of characters you want to scroll horizontally when you tilt the wheel to the left or right.

Click OK."
