Your observation about the mouse scroll wheel behavior in 13 going up or down rather than to left or right is confirmed.
Why? Adobe needs to explain why.the decision....either via PRE_help of Adobe Staff.
I have tried several maneuvers including modifiers trying to modify what appears to be the what is (up or down) behavior for mouse scroll wheel and 13 no matter what you do.
So this is an internal problem that I can not fix. And Adobe knows about this?
This is not Adobe. Rather a user to user forum.
However, when a new version of Premiere Elements is released, the Adobe presence is often seen here related to the new version at undefined times.
It is not known to us if Adobe is aware of this matter or whether what we are observing represents an oversight on its part or a designed in feature
as is the case of the new Work Area Bar behavior at the end of the last item of the Timeline content.
I do not work with Premiere Pro, but I am aware of a Premiere Pro document that speaks to the Premiere Pro and the mouse scroll wheel. The document
seems to show how to use it either way, up or down versus left or right. I see no choice in Premiere Elements 13 for anything but up or down in this regard.
Let us see if tomorrow will bring the PRE_help or Adobe Staff help into your Premiere Elements 13 thread.
Wow, very frustrating!
I have not seen any response from Adobe on this in an Adobe document or other wise as it relates to Premiere Elements.
Whether or not we will ever see one is questionable.
You might want to consider filing an Adobe Feature Request Bug Report Form on the matter with Adobe. Most likely you will not get a personalized reply
and an immediate fix. But, you will have registered your comments to Adobe who can do something about it if it gets enough attention drawn to it.
There again, the result is likely to be wait for next version.
Holy cow. It's terrible for usability. The scroll bars are tiny...how often do you need to scroll up/down to see "video 5" and "narration" at the same time? Compare that to the times you need to scroll the timeline!
Please add your feedback to my idea suggestion:
There has been a fix found for this. It was a wonderful find by a Premiere Elements user Bernard.
Here is an excerpt of my blog post on the details...amazing find.
0018. Premiere Elements 13 Expert Workspace Timeline Area Mouse Wheel Scrolling Issue: Bernard Solution
In prior versions of Premiere Elements, mouse scroll wheel has been used to scroll the Timeline, moving the Timeline Indicator from left to right or right to left - frame by frame. This is not the case in Premiere Elements 13 Expert workspace.Timeline. Instead, there the mouse scroll wheel scrolling results in the movement of the Timeline tracks up or down or up and down in the Timeline panel.
Bernard has posted the discovery that mouse scroll wheel scrolling in Premiere Elements 13 Expert workspace Timeline can result in the left to right or right to left movement and gave the how to details. Incredible findings by Bernard.
The essentials of what Bernard did and observed include
- With zoom in max set in the -+ slider above the Timeline, position the mouse with the scroll wheel at a blank space to the right or left of the Edit area monitor, and scroll. An 11 frames movement (left to right or right to left) results from each nudge of the mouse scroll wheel.
- If the Premiere Elements 13 icon in the Taskbar is clicked twice before doing the scroll as described above, the result is a 1 frame movement (left to right or right to left) with each nudge of the mouse scroll wheel.
Commentary...we have confirmed Bernard's findings in Premier Elements 13 on Windows 7 and 8.1 64 bit. But more work needs to be done with quantifying the scenario which results with the 11 frames movement per nudge of the mouse scroll wheel. So far, the degree of zoom in does not appear to influence the results.

Please let us know if it works for you.
Doesn't work for me on Premiere Elements 15 at least. I was happy with the way it worked in Elements 11 I just decided to upgrade from.
And as I'm mainly using one or two tracks I have nothing to scroll between anyway. It's just stupid.
I am REALLY disappointed at whoever took the brilliant decision to change the behavior of the scroll wheel and also not allowing the user to set the the scroll wheel does. At least I haven't been able to find it...
I agree I dont like this behavior either.
Scrolling should move the timeline horizontal.
When one wants to scroll vertically a modifier key should be used.
