how to change scroll direction
My scroll is going in the wrong direction, when I move my finger down it scrolls up and vice versa. This happened after I got the Lion update.

I'm sure you've already figured this out by now, but go to System Preferences/ Mouse. At the top of the window is an option for natural direction (or something like that). Uncheck it.

If you want to change it, you have to go to trackpad in system preferences (not mouse). Then go over to "scroll and zoom" and unclick the so-called "natural" scroll direction! :)

Think of the mouse as a movable trackpad. Move your finger up, it pulls the page up. Move your finger down, it pulls the page down.

Is that a scroll wheel, or normal directional pad?
