When using the nemo file browser in icon mode (compact view) the scroll turns to horizontal rather than vertical. For me this is very hard to work with. If the files are in list mode you can scroll vertical to see the next list of files. Hopefully there is a setting to allow this same type of scrolling in the alternate view.
I have spent a lot of time in all the setting options and searching the Internet.
Hopefully someone with experience can give me the setting option, or advise me that it doesn't exist and I can stop searching.
