    I recently installed the windows on my MacBook Pro. But the scroll in windows doesn't work the same as in OS X, it scrolls in the other direction. I check on the Boot Camp Control Panel but there is nothing regarding the scroll. Is there any method to fix this issue without installing Auto Hotkey and putting the script?

    There's this small app in Github: (.exe here)

    It changes the flipflopwheel registry value for every connected mouse. I have not tested the app, but I took a quick look at the source code, and I'm sure it'll get the job dome. I'm certainly going to use this the next time I connect a new mouse in Windows, changing the registry value by hand has been somewhat cumbersome.

    Thanks man. I tried using Trackpad++, It gives all the trackpad features like two finger horizontal swipe and all. It's a quite handy app as it seems.

    The simplest is just open powershell window (as admin) and copy/paste this. Apart from Bootcamp drivers it is all I ever do.

    It isn't as complete as Trackpad++ but does reverse the scroll direction fairly easily. You may want to adjust the scroll speed in control panel (as it is normally faster) but I tend to not bother with that.

    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopWheel -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopWheel 1 }
    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\*\*\Device` Parameters FlipFlopHScroll -EA 0 | ForEach-Object { Set-ItemProperty $_.PSPath FlipFlopHScroll 0 }

    Thanks. It's really worth the wait.
