Short summary of beneficial problem solving experience:
After using gdb I wanted the
cmd.exe window to scroll with the wheel of the mouse while debugging; and after finally reading:
this answer by @KyleStrand:
cmd.exedoes intelligently disable scrolling by default,
to this part of his question:
Is there a way to configure the Windows command prompt to automatically disable scrolling (with both the scrollbar and the mousewheel) whenever an application is launched that runs inside the console window itself?
Ideally, there should be a way to have Windows "intelligently" determine whether scrolling should be disabled
it was evident that I hadn't caused this unwanted lack of mouse-wheel functionality. :)
So how can this 'problem' be fixed in Windows 10?
