turn off inverse scrolling

Do you hate that iPad-style inverse/reverse scrolling in OS X Lion and want your scrolling back to normal? OK, don’t panic! It’s easy!

1.
 Click the Apple logo in the top left of the desktop, choose ‘System Preferences…’.

2.
 Choose the ‘Trackpad’ icon in the second row (‘Hardware’).

3.
 At the top are three tabs; click ‘Scroll & Zoom’.

4.
 The first option is ‘Scroll direction: natural’. UNCHECK this box (yes, what Apple calls ‘natural’ is what we call unnatural!).

That’s it you’re done. The world is restored to normal!
