Scrolling in Microsoft Word

If I open up a document in Microsoft Word on almost any computer and then drag the vertical scroll bar up and down, the document that is in view will also scoll *with* the scroll bar as I move it, even before I release the left-click button. OK, great, no problems there.


But there are some special computers at my work that I occaisonally have to use that aren't connected to the internet but they have Microsoft Office. If I open up a document in Word and then move the scroll bar, the document won't actually scroll until I *release* the left-click button on the mouse. This is very subtle, but it turns out to be super annoying when trying to browse through a large document, because I can't drag continuously and see the document go by, I have to break up the scrolling into discrete chunks.


Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Are there scrolling options somehwere in Word?


Thank you!
