in Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center, select your device, and then select Basic settings. Depending on the mouse model you are using, select Wheel or Touch Strip. Select Identify programs that don’t scroll correctly.

@dwarka , to prevent you to spam all requests adressing this scroll issue with a possibly very limited solution for only a few users:

1.) Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is only available for users of a Microsoft Keyboard or Mouse. In a Windwos 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 without that there is no option for this. As well not in Linux.

2.) Most of the requests deal with the use of a touchpad, not scrolling with a mouse.

I switched to using OpenGL and it still feels too fast, but it's at least enough of an improvement to make scrolling usable.

Tools > Options > View > Use OpenGL for all rendering

I'm on Windows 10 64-bit with an Nvidia GeForce 940MX video card.
