Scroll Reverser overview

Scroll Reverser is a free app for OS X that reverses the direction of scrolling. You can use it with OS X 10.5 and OS X 10.6 (see Related Links for older version) to make your scrolling match the 'natural scrolling' in OS X 10.7.

You can also use it with OS X 10.7 to customise scrolling behaviour beyond what is possible in system preferences, for example to reverse the trackpad but not the mouse.

Scroll Reverser is small, simple and efficient and works with all mice and trackpads with a scroll wheel or scroll gesture support, including MacBook trackpads, Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse, and Mighty Mouse.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What’s new in version 1.8.2

  • Fixed broken scrolling with Trackpad and Magic Mouse in Safari, on macOS Monterey 12.2 and Big Sur 11.6.2.
  • Adds Czech, Danish, Hungarian and Vietnamese translations, plus updates to other languages. Thanks to all the translators.

So dumb that you can't control scroll direction of trackpad and mouse separately on MacOS Monterey, but this app does the job, woot!
