The middle button scrolling feature in Google Chrome is a great way to quickly move around a webpage, but sometimes it can be a nuisance. Fortunately, there is an easy way to disable it for all users on your network.
First, open up the Group Policy Editor (GPE) on the server. This can be done by typing “gpedit.msc” into the Run box, or by going to the Control Panel and opening the Group Policy Editor.
Once you’re in the GPE, navigate to the following path: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Google > Google Chrome > Extensions.
In the right-hand pane, you will see a setting called “Allow middle button scrolling”. Double-click on it and select “Disabled” from the drop-down menu. This will prevent the middle button from scrolling on any webpages opened in Chrome on the machines in your network.
If you want to take it a step further, you can also disable the middle button scrolling for individual users. To do this, open the registry editor and navigate to the following path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Policies\\Google\\Chrome\\Extensions.
Once you’re there, create a new DWORD value called “AllowMiddleButtonScrolling” and set the value to 0. This will disable the middle button scrolling feature for the specific user.
Finally, you may also want to consider using Chrome’s built-in extension management system to disable the middle button scrolling feature. To do this, open the Chrome browser and type “chrome://extensions” into the address bar. This will open up the extensions page, where you can view all the installed extensions.
Find the extension responsible for the middle button scrolling feature and click the “Disable” button. This will prevent the middle button from scrolling on any webpages opened in Chrome.
By following the steps described above, you will be able to easily disable the middle button scrolling feature for all users on your network, or for individual users. This will allow you to keep the middle button from scrolling on Chrome, preventing any potential annoyances or distractions.
