This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Inverted horizontal scroll bug (Windows 10)

I've recently upgraded to a new laptop and for some reason the horizontal scrolling direction in Photoshop is now the opposite to the old laptop I had and every single other windows app.

I've made this rushed video that I provided to Adobe customer support but they don't seem to know how to change this https://md28.in/v/e4p2euss.mp4

When I swipe left to right content should appear from the left of the screen. When I swipe right to left content should appear from the right of the screen. Currently left to right makes content appear from the right and right to left from the left.

I've tried reinstalling Photoshop but the issue is still there. It's fine in every other windows app and even other adobe apps. I just want it to function how my muscle memory is used to. Any help would be appreciated.

That is a strange one for sure. I found this link below, that might be a source for your issue because it was the hardware that changed and this person seems to have a similar issue. Good Luck.

Appreciate the response, I've seen that Reddit thread too. No issues with vertical scrolling and Photoshop is the only app it is reversed for so I have no idea.
