Important user tip for Mac operators with scroll wheel mice
Rotating the scroll wheel on your mouse will make the active window scroll vertically.

Rotating it while holding down the Command key (aka "apple key," "cloverleaf key," or "key right next to the spacebar") will make the window scroll horizontally.

1. Any tips for when the scroll wheel does not work at all?
Such is my fate.

2. Trade in the $5 mouse you're using for another one?

3. Wow! I just tried that on my PC. It zooms the screen in and out!
Never knew that trick. Learn something new every day! :)

5. Mine scrolls horizontally by rolling the wheel left or right, without moving the mouse or typing.
