Is there a way to set the options for scrolling in the following way :

Use this option when the trackpad is used for scrolling and navigation | Keep this option checked.
"Move Content in the direction of finger moment when scrolling or navigating"

And when the mouse is being used, I want the above option to be unchecked.

I'm guessing that you are talking about the setting that, for me (British English) shows in Settings > Trackpad > Scroll & Zoom > "Scroll direction: natural".

This discussion talks about this issue, and several people mention Scroll Reverser. It has separate options for "Reverse Trackpad" and "Reverse Mouse". (I haven't tested your scenario, but I have used this software for other reasons.)

  • Thanks for the reply. I did check out the app later on the same day and it works.
