1217. Returning Scrolling in OS X Lion to Standard Scrolling

Someone thought it would be useful to have scrolling in OS X Lion work differently than on any other operating system (supposedly to match the natural scrolling on the iPhone and iPad), but most folks just find it infuriating. Luckily, the backwards scrolling only needs to infuriate you for a few minutes, as it's easy to switch it back to what you expect.
  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Select the Trackpad option.
  3. On the Scroll & Zoom page, uncheck the Scroll direction: natural option.

If you don't have a trackpad, or your trackpad doesn't support multi-touch, you won't see this option. Instead, in the Mouse settings, turn off the option titled "Move content in the direction of finger movement when scrolling or navigating.
