If you don’t like the new scrolling direction in Lion, then you can still change it back to the way it was in Snow Leopard and earlier without any trouble through System Preferences.To change the scrolling direction, open the System Preferences application and select ‘Trackpad’. The preference that you’re looking for is called ‘Scroll direction: Natural’, and it’s under the ‘Scroll & Zoom’ tab.
Navigate to this tab, and you will find that the scrolling preference is checked by default. To change the scroll direction back to the way it was under Snow Leopard, simply uncheck it.
You can, of course, go back to System Preferences at any time to restore ‘natural’ scrolling to the way it was by default under Lion, so if you want to try both out to see which you prefer, you can do so without worrying about getting it back to the way it was.
