ThinkPad Scrolling

When I was playing with the Windows Live applications, Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Writer, I noticed that the center button on my ThinkPad T42 didn't scroll the windows like a scroll wheel should. If I plugged in a real mouse with a scroll wheel, that worked so it was something with the ThinkPad's center button.

I Googled this for a while and found this post:

Well this seems to work:

Open c:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\TP4table.dat

Add this just before the "Pass 1" block:

; Set WheelStd as default
I tried it and rebooted.

Problem fixed.
