How to change the size of the Windows 10 scroll bar

The Windows scroll bar is the bar that appears to the right of every window (including the web browser) that allows us to scroll vertically (or horizontally) through all of the contents of that window. In addition, if we have a very long list of items, we can also use the mouse wheel with this bar.

Although Microsoft gives the operating system many options Settings In the menu we often find functions and settings that are not yet included in this Settings menu. For example, the ability to adjust the size of this scroll bar of the windows of our windows. Therefore, if we want to change the size, we have to resort to a simple change in the Windows registry.

Change the size of the Windows scroll bar

To make this change in the configuration, you must first enter the Windows registry. To do this, use the Cortana search engine or press the button Windows + R Keyboard shortcut and execute the command:


In the Windows registry editor, let's move on to the next section:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Control Panel / Desktop / WindowMetrics

Here we find two values: ScrollHeight and ScrollWidth. These two allow us to change these values ​​(although we need to know how to enter the appropriate value).

By default, these values ​​have a value of -255. This value is obtained by multiplying -15 by the value in pixels that you want the scroll bar to be. The default value is 17 pixels (-15 × 17 = -255). If you want this bar to be 10 pixels thick, change the values ​​to the negative number (-15 × 10 = -150). If we want it to be thicker by 20 pixels, we change the value to (-15 × 20 = -300).

These registry entries support values ​​from -120 (the thinnest) to -1500 (the thickest).

Restart the computer after changing the values. When you open a new Windows File Explorer window, the new value is assigned on the PC.

Return to the original size of the scroll bar

At first, we may not find the optimal value through to the end. Nothing happens. We just have to go back to the registry and change the value of these two entries again to another value and restart to see the changes.

If you haven't convinced us of a configuration, you'll need to restore the default value for the two registry entries. That is, we will give ScrollHeight and ScrollWidth a value of -255 (negative, important value).

We accept the changes, restart the PC and have the Windows 10 scrollbar back in size and thickness by default.

This trick continues to work All versions of Windows 10 , from the first to the 2004 version of the operating system, which will be released in spring 2020.
