I just booted into Win 7 and opened 2 windows of Google chrome and i could do it! But in 2 windows of IE 9 I could not, so i guess its application sensitive.
post #12 of 25
Then when I open 2 windows of IE 9 and 2 Windows of Chrome I can scroll in both Chrome windows but not the IE 9 windows. And when an IE 9 window is on top i can only scroll in that one window and not either of the 2 Chrome windows or the other IE 9 windows. So this is more software related more then OS.

But giving non Internet Browsers and using OS folder windows, Ive only seen Linux to do the scroll not Windows.

It works! But only in the same application. For example, if I have this open and an Explorer window open on top it doesn't work.

But in Linux it does! You can use any window by just scrolling and not selecting the window you want to scroll on, just hover the mouse over.

It works on XP too with Chrome.

So for Windows, it must be either a) Chrome thing similar to Linux or b) it's just related to a few particular programs.

I think he just meant mainly you could use any window combination in linux. Like your C: drive documents folder, and chrome, or firefox, or another window.

I understand that!

What I was trying to point out was, since it works with Chrome via Windows 7 and Windows XP, it seems like it's a function available to Chrome.

It's possible you can also do the same thing with other programs running in multiple instances; but, I haven't tried that yet.

Thats what led me to believe it may be more software related then OS related, but so far everything in Linux has worked. In Windows 7 , only Chrome has worked. Do you have Firefox in Windows?
