    Evenin' all.....

    If you are viewing something in your browser that is bigger than the browser window and therefore you have scrollbars, what is your preferred method for scrolling....

    Dragging the scrollbar
    Arrow keys
    Page up/down keys
    Home/end keys
    Mouse wheel
    Autoscroll
    Other

    If you don't know what autoscroll is, and I don't know if all mouses (mice?) have this or are configurable to enable this but, if I click my mouse wheel on a scrollable browser window, my cursor changes to a circle with four arrows, and if I move the cursor around, the page automatically scrolls, and the closer to the page edge I go, the faster it scrolls. Which is great on long pages because it eliminates endless wheel rolling.

    Thanks for any contributions.  ; )

    Autoscroll is a great part of my mouse. I use it often.  My opinion.

    I use the mouse wheel for short/slow scrolling and scroll bar for moving far and/or fast.

    Of course, if I am copying something, I usually just click and hold then drag up or down as required.
