putty: changing mouse wheel scroll lines

I'm running putty 0.60 on Windows XP SP3 connecting to a Solaris host. When I use my mouse wheel to scroll within the window, one scroll click results in moving 25 lines. Is there a way to change this to some smaller number of lines per click - say 1, 2 or 3?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know of a way to change that behavior.
I use version 0.58, and it scrolls 12 lines per scroll click.

The behavior that I’ve seen is to scroll half the number of rows currently showing. If you have 50 rows then it will scroll 25. If you have 20 rows then it will scroll 10. I’m running the .60

    I was looking for the same thing so I downloaded the putty source code. It is hard coded to scroll half the page for each notch of the mouse wheel. I was able to modify it to only scroll 3 lines at a time and compile it. It seems to work well.
