I was scrolling up an article with my wheel mouse using it's center wheel and all of a sudden, the page rolled upwards to the top like it was gliding on a sheet of ice and for a second my mouse's pointer cursor became a different object, more like a round dot with a funny shape inside. I was using the center wheel of my mouse and was rapidly scrolling when this happened and it has happened more than once but not with that strange and unfamiliar cursor symbol not an arrow. It disappeared and then returned to a normal cursor arrow after I tapped the left key on the mouse. Funny Strange. Has this ever happened to you?

I was going to tell you what it was but saw someone did and yes that is how I figured out the scroll wheel is a button too.

I appreciate your intentions to share this with me. It will help others who perhaps stop and read this discussion who have experienced it not knowing the cause. I had never known this about my wheel mouse until today. I had been using it for over 5 years without even checking out all of it's features.

I am glad to know it was not in fact, a problem but rather just a special extra mousy feature to become aware of that I ignored all these years. lol
