Smooth scrolling in a TCC window

I use stand-alone TCC sessions in WinXP SP3 (no TCMD tabs). They use smooth scrolling. I did not find any entry in the OPTION dialogs to disable it. Searching through my .INI files, no directive name including "smooth" was found, and the only directive name containing "scroll" was for V6. How can I disable smooth scrolling?

I have not seen nor heard of anything but the default scrolling in a console.
Googling "smooth scrolling" "windows console" turned up nothing interesting. The
only place I can think of to look would be
MyComputer\Properties\Advanced\Performance (but I'm pretty sure there's nothing
apropos there).

Does it happen in a CMD window or only in TCC?

It is not a TCC option. The scrolling in a TCC window is controlled by the
Windows console manager.

You probably have a screen manager or display driver option that you set and
then forgot.

Apparently yes, judging by the screen fill rate of a DIR/B/S after a CLS. Starting at top it is very rapid, after which (when the screen needs to be scrolled) it slows down considerably. Scroll rate of CMD and TCC is appears not to be significantly different (not measured...).

Vince:
I did not find any registry keys resembling the one you mentioned.

Rex:
I went back to "Display Properties". Searched everywhere, there is no control for smooth scrolling.

I am at a loss!

Not a registry key ... right-click MyComputer ...
Properties\Advanced\Performance.

Are you using a magnifier or any other gadget that might change the way consoles
work?

There's one in Control Panel->Internet Options on the Advanced tab... I'm pretty sure it at least also affects Windows Explorer.

I've also seen differences in display adapter (like nVidia vs ATI) affect console window scrolling speed. I believe ATIs were the slower.

Thanks, found it, system set for "maximum performance", nothing set to smooth scroll.

Nothing.

I never intentionally start IE. I searched the IE Options dialog, no smooth scrolling marked.

That may be my issue, though it also affects my Dell Laptop (an old one).

Thanks everyone, seems I just have to live with slower display...

Are you absolutely certain that there isn't a setting under the advanced
section for your display adapter's properties?
