    Hello,
    This is very annoying.
    I keep raging because as I am editing my PowerPoint, the mouse wheel keeps changing slide while I'm still editing that page. I zoom on onto a particular area of that slide use my mouse wheel to move around, sometimes it works, mostly it just changes the slide.
    It may sound silly, but when its your Product Design coursework and you are currently on side 83 of 200, the future seems even more daunting seeing as I keep changing pages every 2 minutes unintentionally.
    If anyone can help me to disable this, so I just click the slides on the left, or use the arrow keys to change slides, it would be appreciated greatly.
    Seriously, you would make my week !
    Thank you,
    Lee

    not sure you can change this, I remember it being annoying but it's pretty integral to scrolling... either you stop using the mouse wheel or you get used to it :3
