Fortunately, this issue is really easy to fix in Windows 10.


Open the Start Menu, type mouse, and select the option that opens the Mouse & Touchpad Settings. You could get to the same place by opening Settings and navigating through it all, but this is faster and easier.

In the Mouse & Touchpad Settings, scroll all the way to the bottom and click on the link labeled Additional Mouse Options. This opens a window that you might be familiar with from previous versions of Windows.



Go to the Wheel tab and change the number under Vertical Scrolling. A lower number is slower scrolling while a higher number is faster scrolling. I like mine at 3, which is the default, but feel free to set it to whatever you prefer.
