    System Display Percent - No Scroll bars prevent bottom window access


    Being a senior with fading eye sight, I use the 150% scaling on the System Display setting. The problem arises due to 1/2 of the windows on various applications, not providing a scroll bar, preventing access to the options at the bottom of these windows that extend beyond the bottom of the screen. In addition, these windows do not allow resizing at all, or even when provided, it limits vertical sizing that will not allow access to the bottom options.

    On each of these, I need to access the setting, change it to 125%, re-accessing the window selecting the bottom option and then returning to display settings changing it back to 150%.

    I understand that possibly the coding of third party applications may prevent the scroll bar or resizing (which I don't understand Microsoft allowing), however I was curious if there was a hidden setting that would force a vertical scroll bar or unlimited resizing on all windows, or if not, if this could be an option added on a future windows update??
    Thanks,

    :)

    Windows 10 - how can i change the size of the scroll bar ? it used to be under properties but not on Windows 10

    Hi Teroi,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I regret the inconvenience caused to you. Let me help you.



    In order to understand the issue in a better manner, please share the following details.


    • Which application’s or program’s scroll bar are you referring to?

    • What was the exact steps that you used to change the size of scroll bar in your previous OS version?


    The size of the scroll bar cannot be altered as it is inbuilt with the Windows Operating System.

    I suggest you to share the details, so that we can assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    I, too, have a vision disability and need you to change the "inbuilt" features to allow for adjustments to size and color of the scroll bars and text selection in Windows 10.
