Currently the scroll direction for mouse is bound to trackpad. Is there any way to unlink them without downloading any third party apps?

    @Nimesh Neema, Thie is not a duplicate because of "without downloading any third party apps" and your possible duplicate is nothing but third party apps! That said though, I think the only way possible is with a third party app. – user3439894 Jun 22 '19 at 2:48
  • If you don’t get any answers after a while, consider adding this to explain why third-party app is not desirable and work a third-party app might mean. Perhaps you are looking to automate this or script this or write your own third party app? – bmike Jun 22 '19 at 4:01
  • @user3439894 you will likely get a lot of votes if you answer this is not programmed and although the op doesn’t want to install apps, the practical solution for most people wanting this is the linked question – bmike Jun 22 '19 at 4:02

    t.c, Unfortunately how Apple has programmed this, there is not a native terminal command, that I know of, to separate the scrolling direction of the mouse and trackpad as they both use the same setting. The reason third-party apps work for this, generally speaking, is because they watch the event stream and intercept the target events to then have their app control the situation. If you can't install a third-party app then if you have Xcode installed, maybe you can use the source code from Scroll Reverser to build you own version of it to install. – user3439894 Jun 22 '19 at 10:28
