I can do a 2-finger swipe on my trackpad to scroll the tiles left and right in Windows 8 Modern UI, but every time I do it, it scrolls in the opposite direction I'd expect. Is there a way to reverse it?

If relevant, I'm using the Logitech K400r

Maybe someone can help if you care to mention your hardware details, which trackpad software you use etc. –  Karan Feb 8 '13 at 5:27
@Karan: Logitech k400r. I assumed this would be a Windows setting, so i didn't think the hardware was relevant. –  Mark Feb 8 '13 at 6:15

I had to change this setting as soon as I started to play with Windows 8.1.

Just follow the directions laid out in this tutorial and you'll be all set.

@miroxlav, I'm on mobile right now. It will have to do. Instead of critiquing my post, couldn't you just copy and paste the links content instead? Seems a bit more useful to users then your previous remark. Thanks. –  Geruta Jul 29 at 19:46
I'm not chasing you, just do it when you return to PC, or even from the mobile. Copy-paste is not needed, I see you can type without problems even from the mobile. So just describe the steps in your own words. (Copy-paste without giving a source can also make copyringht infringement.). I understand you might not have known that link-only answers are not welcome at this site. Now you know, take it as constructive learning of something essential. I'm not against facts contained in your answer, they were very valuable. So just post thorough answers and you are fine. –  miroxlav Jul 29 at 19:59

Your Logitech device has special software utility called SetPoint which allows various adjustments of keyboard and trackpad on your device.

You can download it from K400r support page.

Since SetPoint 6.51.8 you can enable "Natural scrolling" which reverses scrolling direction.

Open SetPoint, go to Scrolling tab, click on Scrolling options and check the first option.
