    Horizontal scroll bar in Chrome
    « on: May 02, 2019, 11:25:08 PM »
    The horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen is barely visible. This usually happens when changing the magnification of the screen. Some of the pages I go to are that way even with a setting of 100%. Is there any way to change it? I've messed with the resolutions but it doesn't help.

      I found this from searching and it says to add the Windows 7 extension. I can't see any harm in trying but thought I'd ask for some input from you guys. It seems anytime I change things in chrome, I lose my 25 plus thumbnails of links I have saved in speed-dial.

       PS: I found an interesting article on the hiding of scroll bars period. That would be cool but my clicking the wheel which used to place a + sign on the screen and you could move your mouse up, down or sideways and the screen would follow doesn't work anymore. What's up with that?

        OK, I'm not getting any help, either I've asked a stupid question, not a very important question or no one has an answer. I have two computers that have Windows 10, one mouse which is a USB allows using a wheel click to place a + sign inside a circle and when you move the mouse the page scrolls. The other has a wireless and won't. All settings are the same. Could that be the answer? I'll find out in a minute.

        The answer is yes, the USB mouse has the + in a circle and when the wheel is clicked, the page will follow the movement of the mouse and the wireless won't. PERSEVERANCE RULES!
