Make it Bigger
If you find that the scrollbars in all the windows are too narrow, check this out. You can make those scrollbars just about as big as you want. To change the size of your scroll bars, do this:
Right-click the desktop and choose Properties. When the Display Properties dialog box opens, click the Appearance tab. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the scrollbar. In the Item list box, you should now see the word Scrollbar. Next, locate the spin box labeled Size and click the up arrow until the scrollbar size looks more like what you need. Now, click OK to close the dialog box and record your changes.
The newly sized scrollbars now appear in all your Windows programs.
