    Thanks Mike. I understood that but I'm chasing a unix script that will turn it back around the other way. I work in a school and the students aren't impressed to them it is "backwards" I have locked down system prefs so the students can't get in, I want to send a unix login hook to change it around. Any more ideas?

    Thanks heaps

    You could, theoretically, edit the .GlobalPreferences.plist file and add

    com.apple.swipescrolldirection
    set the type to boolean and the setting to false (or NO)

    (that would turn natural scrolling OFF, true (or YES) would turn it on)

    I'll add the caveat that I have not tried it.

    Where's the fun in that?

    beardiebeardie, why not do this at the "global" level instead of at the user level? Make the change on each machine for all users and save yourself the trouble of having to set this for each and every user.
