Scroll Reverser

1.7.6
11 May 2017

Reverse the direction of scrolling on your Mac.

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.

This is an awesome tool! I've been using it for years ever since I got a normal mouse for my Mac. Sometimes Apple's logic is simply flawed. Why can't we have the natural direction on trackpad and classic direction on a mouse with turning wheel. Thanks for the author.

What does NOT make sense is the description says you can use it with OS X 10.5 & 10.6 but the System Requirements says minimum is 10.7. Huh???

It seems that the developer's web site also has a version that claims to run on OS-X V10.+

Excellent utility. If you have systems that can't be upgraded beyond Snow Leopard and have newer systems you can have all of them set to natural action of the mouse and easily switch from one to the other.

Not needed. Go to System Preferences/Mouse and uncheck Scroll direction: natural.

It's useful for those who want natural scroll when using an external mouse and inverse scroll when using the trackpad, or vice versa. When you change the option under Sys Pref - it changes for all types of mice (trackpad and external).

Kenm22, you have not read what the app does, and what it does more than the features included in the sys. Re-read, and re-phrase your comment.

Does what it says. No mess, no fuss. I'm currently using it just fine in OSX 10.9 Mavericks.
