I've got a Macbook pro running Os Ventura. When I use the trackpad directly, I like natural scrolling; when I have a mouse with a scroll wheel I prefer this setting toggled off. Throughout the course of my work day I have opportunities to go back and forth many times and it'd be nice if I could tell it to automatically toggle based on whether a mouse is plugged into the USB. Is there such a configuration?

There are several 3-rd party apps to make mouse and trackpad have different scroll directions:


Scroll Reverser

Mac Mouse Fix


There is even Shortcut to switch the setting if you prefer to not install any 3-rd party apps but it requires manual activation.
