Hello! Just a quick question. I have Windows 10 Home and the image viewing programme thingy that came with it is in english I guess Photos. Well the thing is when I view pictures with it, it scrolls to another image when I scroll the mouse. For a while when I scrolled the mouse the image would zoom in and out and you had to press on the arrow on the image to get to the next one. But now it scrolls to another image again. How can I make it so that it zooms when I scroll the mouse? I dunno why it changed for a while, maybe updates did something, I dunno.

Seems users had complained to Microsoft, and the functionality might have been changed in the latest updates. See if holding down the Ctrl key as you scroll works, that is the common way of selecting scroll functions.

I have noticed this behavior becoming more common, and it annoys me to death as well.

 

Virtually every image viewing/editing software I've ever used has keys specifically dedicated to "next/previous image" and/or areas at the left and right sides of the image you can activate to go to the next one.  I used scroll up for enlarge/zoom/magnify and scroll down to reverse it for a great many years.   Alas, those years appear to be in the past.

At least it's something! I guess MS can't make it default to please everybody, but you'd wonder that it wouldn't be made a switchable option. I didn't find any hint in my searches that anyone knew of a way to make it default back the other way, but maybe someone will track down a registry key that does it...

And it ain't just MS!!   The amount of griping I hear (some from myself) about default settings that "I don't like" is far too much, and in particular when the default can be reconfigured to suit one's personal taste quite easily.

 

There is also the problem, too, of "option overload."  It was interesting to see GPS makers go from "you can configure virtually every blessed little detail" regarding display colors, level of detail for labeling not only streets/roads but other things like bodies of water, etc., etc., etc., in the earliest units to, "you'll take these defaults, and here are the few (relatively speaking) things you can customize" approach prevalent today.  Virtually all of that was secondary to customers complaining because they were so overwhelmed at trying to find the thing they wanted to change when they wanted to make what should have been a simple change.  When you've got a thousand options, even if they're arranged carefully and hierarchically, it makes it very difficult to find what you're looking for unless you have had to look on multiple occasions and relatively frequently and developed (no pun intended) navigation skills.  Most people, including myself, don't.  This applies more broadly, too.  Try finding the option you're looking for when you want to make any number of "simple" tweaks to any MS-Office program.  It can be maddening!
