    Lenovo all-in-one. Windows 10, (wireless mouse) about 5 years old recently started to (primarily) scroll down automatically... It also fails to continuously display "drop downs" when I click on them. Sometimes it works if I use my finger touch screen display.

    Tried a system restore, checked for driver updates, etc. Any suggestions?

    thanks in advance,
    Pops

    It could be a hardware issue with either the mouse or the touch screen. Have you tried a different mouse?

    Also, you could try replacing the batteries in the wireless mouse. They can do weird things like this when the batteries are low.

    Random thought - you use the laptop keyboard or an external keyboard? I had a keyboard go bad and it would do that auto-scroll from time to time. The mouse is more likely, but just a thought.

    fairly certain way to be sure, disconnect the wireless mouse and plug in a usb mouse, if it works fine then it's the mouse (which is my bet, it's almost always something mechanical).
