Reverse Scrolling on Mac (and Windows too!)

In Mac OS X Lion, Apple reversed the scrolling direction. “Natural Scrolling” means that you are now moving the content instead of the scroll bar.

It took my brain a week to get used to it and now it completely makes sense to my muscle memory. In fact, on my Windows PC at work, my brain went nuts trying to go back to the old way. I dusted off the AutoHotkey scripting environment and wrote a script that reverses scrolling direction.

WheelUp::
 Send {WheelDown}
Return

WheelDown::
 Send {WheelUp}
Return

Thanks to How-To Geek for the solution.
