Can I remove event completions from bounce rate without changing code implementation on my websites?

I have several websites, and all events on them were set-up as interaction events (such that users who complete them are excluded from bounce rate). Some events are irrelevant as 10% page scroll, so I would obviously like to exclude these from my bounce rate calculation.

 

Is there any way to do this in the analytics interface (with either a filter or calculated metric) without changing the event code that is implemented on the websites?

Hi @Dakota M,

I guess you'll have to modify the code (set non-Interaction = true). 
There is no option to change the hit type in interface.

Here's how to do it: http://www.lunametrics.com/blog/2014/05/06/noninteraction-events-google-analytics/
