What other ways to freely rotate part other than using scroll wheel button?

Hey Solidworks users,


A long time ago I think I used Solidworks 2006 and back then it was very easy to freely rotate a part, I think all I had to do was click on an empty space or the part itself if I'm not mistaken and I could freely rotate it.

Recently I think they've updated it and you can only rotate the part freely when you click on your mouse scroll button. I find this to be a bummer because I hate using the mouse scroll button everytime I want to rotate the part.


Is there any way I can change this under some setting? Or am I stuck with it?

Also, does anyone know which version of Solidworks did they begin to make this change?


Thanks so much!
