Recently my mouse scroll wheel scrolls my volume slider WAY too much

Like, it will go 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100, way too big of a jump. Before it would only go 3 or 4 steps with each scroll.

It seems weird in other apps too, and I had to redo the setting to stop one single scroll on the wheel send me flying down to the bottom of a web page.

I've checked every mouse setting in the control panels and I can't figure it out.

Anyone have any ideas?

Related to when you changed your mouse settings for PUBG?

Oddly enough no, it started before then. I just happened to start messing when trying to figure out my scroll wheel issue.

It co-incides with another issue where Microsoft Keyboard & Mouse Center won't recognise my keyboard or mouse anymore, even after uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.

Try different mouse. If different mouse does the same thing, it's a software issue. If it's a software issue, good luck. My bet is that Windows update screwed something up.
