    How do I disable vertical scrollbar popup in Windows/File Explorer


    Either I never noticed it before or I somehow triggered it but it's been showing up for a couple days everytime I manually scroll in Windows Explorer, never shows when I'm using my mouse's scroll wheel and doesn't show in the 'Lists' option in the View bar. When the popup shows, it blocks icons and information so it's very bothersome and in the way for me. Also, the popup label isn't helpful as I use the 'Icons' view option so it only gives info (Sometimes dates, sometimes file names) of just the first file in a row when I could jst use the sorting or grouping options to do that...

    Is there a way to disable it?

    How to make all vertical scrollbars in Windows 10 wider and be present always

    I have a 24" widescreen monitor for a desktop running Windows 10 Pro 1709, 16299.334 and I need wider vertical scrollbars on ALL windows. I have been able to make them wider for SOME windows by editing the registry and in Windows Metrics changing the scroll
    height and width to -500. That works great for my browsers and some other windows. That, however, does not work for much of Windows itself such as Settings where the scrollbar remains so tiny I can barely use it and, thus, which discourages me from making
    changes and makes it unpleasant and frustrating to try and work with such an extremely unnecessarily narrow scrollbar on a very wide monitor. The scrollbar is also very narrow and almost invisible if I use Start/all apps - so tiny I can't scroll the apps.
    These are just some examples of how registry settings I have changed have not taken effect in some parts of Windows. Why is this? How do I fix it?

    Also, a related issue that I want to know how to fix: How do I stop the vertical scrollbar from disappearing from my screen or not even being there at all? (Such as its behavior in IE 11 which I would use more frequently if the scrollbar stayed visible
    at all times). The vertical scrollbar should be there all the time as well as being the width I set it for!

  3. Dissapearing vertical scroll bar on IE11

    To correct disappearing vertical scroll bar on IE11 do as follows:

    1) Open notepad and write the following text: @-ms-viewport{width:auto!important}

    2) Safe the file in a protect folder as: C:\windows\ScrollBar\ScrollBar.css

    NB! Remember to crate the ScrollBar folder under C:\Windows.

    3) Open internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options, then click on Accessibility button

    4) Tick the: Format documents using my style sheet.

    5) Write the location of the file (C:\windows\ScrollBar\ScrollBar.css)
