Do you have a problem with mouse scroll not working in Internet Explorer? This is not a mouse problem. It is an issue with some change in settings inside IE. Most probable culprit is IE add-ons. Add-ons and toolbars are considered the one which creates maximum problem to web browsers.
Try these steps in Internet Explorer
- Press Windows Key + R to open Run window
- Type inetcpl.cpl. Click OK. This open Internet Options window
- Under Programs Tab, click Manage add-ons
- Go through the list of add-ons. Disable add-ons one at a time or you can disable all add-ons which you think is not necessary or looking suspicious. Then close the window and check if the IE is working fine.
Note: In my case, the issue was fixed after disabling Linkey add-on(Check the above image). Disabling the add-on also fixed an issue where the browser opened new links to Linkey website. Hope you might find a similar add-on on your browser.
If disabling add-on didn’t work, try resetting Internet Explorer
- Open Internet Options window
- Go to Advanced Tab. Click Reset.
- This will reset IE to original manufacturer settings. Once the reset is complete, open IE and check if mouse is working fine.
