I meant one line of writing/typing.
I have it currently set to 6 lines per click, better but still very slow - it now takes 3 clicks of the wheel to move one line of text in, e.g., a Word document. A bit more in some other situations, but still exasperating. I suppose I can just set it higher . . . and higher . . . <G>
I am however wondering how this changed, as it very noticeably did, without my changing the default setting (3 lines per click).
That computer is my work laptop and gets a few hours of use almost every day. I usually produce at least several Word documents (actually, drafts of E-mail messages my secretary then sends) each day. The slowdown in mouse-scrolling rate has become noticeable only in the last few days.
I am not doing anything fancy with this computer. MS Word (365) texts, Internet lookups mostly of technical stuff (I am General Manager of a rural water district, but with much more scientific background than typical in that job - "grossly overqualified" as they like to say <G> but I'm not complaining, it lets me find interesting cheap solutions to otherwise thorny expensive problems). I write reports. I use spreadsheets to analyze what's happening in the system. I take and store a lot of photographs (document everything ...). Very low-level basic stuff. My computer at home is a different story, but the office laptop has not yet been asked to do anything beyond the basics.
